The consultation will provide a way for traditional and non-traditional suppliers and users of advanced materials to feedback to the programme.


Register your interest to take part in the MSA enduring consultation email [email protected]


Established in April 2017, the MSA programme is one of the MOD’s Chief Scientific Advisor’s research programmes run by the Defence Science Technology Laborary. It aims to exploit global developments in materials science, across the academic and industrial sectors for UK Defence and Security to maintain strategic and operational technological advantage, and to save money for the lifecycle of the projects.

The first phase of this consultation will identify:

  • the technical barriers linked with the development and insertion of advanced materials technologies on defence equipment;
  • exploitation opportunities directly through industry into defence platforms
  • innovative technologies or approaches that could be developed in the future S&T programme

The consultation is not a request for bids from the supplier base to direct fund mature technologies or products.

How will the information be used?


Information provided under this consultation will be used to shape future research activity which will be openly competed in accordance with competition rules. This could include, for example, through the identification of technical barriers that are common across the supply base where interventions may have maximum impact, or opportunities for collaboration.

The identification of exploitation and future technology insertion opportunities will ensure research requirements are incorporated into future competitions to maximise the chance of exploitation via industry into military equipment.

How will the information generated be protected?


All data will be protected in accordance with the civil service code.

Who is this consultation aimed at?


This consultation is open to all sectors and supplier types but engagement with equipment manufacturers in particular is sought. For example:

  • defence primes
  • wider industry
  • SMEs
  • research and development centres of excellence
  • research technology organisations

What are the timescales for the consultation?
