Delivering Land Domain Advantage through Innovation and SME Engagement

Together, Defense Advancement and BAE Systems are redefining and disrupting the way defence Primes interact with SMEs, to accelerate development and extend capabilities in the land domain

BAE Systems Digital Intelligence and Defense Advancement are working together to engage with SMEs and drive innovation in the land domain.

We’re breaking down the barriers that traditionally exist for SMEs in working with large defence Primes, to increase SME-to-Prime interaction and new technology discoverability.

Our partnership aims to extend the capabilities of the land domain via close industry collaboration.

Defense Advancement is a fantastic resource for industry and there’s a natural synergy with BAE Systems as we look to the future of the land domain. This partnership builds on the success we’ve had with DA’s sister website, Unmanned Systems Technology, and we’re excited to support and work closely with DA to create an incredible ecosystem of innovators.
