AMD receives UK Government DASA funding for graphene-based radar absorbing technology

Advanced Material Development (AMD) has announce that it has received UK Government Defense and Security Accelerator (DASA) funding for its radar absorbing technologies. This funding will allow AMD to further demonstrate its materials as an effective application in this field.

Funded by the Army Research Innovation and Exploitation Laboratory (ARIEL), a part of the Army’s Futures Directorate, the competition seeks novel low-cost and adaptable autonomous air systems to give the UK an advantage.


The challenge for AMD is to use its existing low-cost radar absorbing technologies to help such autonomous air systems survive against evolving counter-air and counter-uncrewed air system threats.

John Lee, CEO of AMD, says: “We are excited to be working within this program offering the UK Government an opportunity to exploit the existing AMD Radar absorbing technologies that have been developed over the last five years. We fully expect to be able to demonstrate that AMD materials will, without any other negative impact, provide a significant broadband reduction in the radar cross section of the platform.”
