AMD secures further UK Defence and Security Accelerator funding

Posted By Graphene Council, The Graphene Council, Tuesday, November 26, 2019
AMD is delighted to announce its second award for funding via the UK Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) in the field of Nanobarcoding, “Authenticating Critical Components”.

Both the UK &US defence agencies have been extremely supportive of our work and we look forward to continuing developing these rewarding relationships.

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. 

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.
