UK-based AMD, which was accepted for funding via the UK Defense and Security Accelerator (DASA) in the field of “signature management”, recently received its second DASA funding in the field of Nanobarcoding, “Authenticating Critical Components”.
CEO John Lee comments: “This year has seen a rapid evolution in AMD’s involvement in the area of protecting both military and civilian personnel. Following on from our work in signature management we are now able, with the support of DASA funding, to further our efforts in our key vertical of anti-counterfeiting technologies. Both the UK & US defense agencies have been extremely supportive of our work and we look forward to continuing developing these rewarding relationships... Our work with the Materials Physics teams at Sussex and now Surrey continues to drive some very exciting areas of innovation with specific commercial applications and it looks like 2020 will see some major developments for us in a multitude of areas.”
AMD is also currently engaged with a number of leading global businesses developing material applications for the commercial and environmental challenges faced in industries such as automotive and consumer supply chains, sensing and life sciences.
