The Growing Autonomous Mission Management Applications (GAMMA) is a three year £9.1 million, Autonomous Systems programme aimed at driving SME engagement and developing technology within the emerging autonomous systems markets.
The programme is lead by North West Aerospace Alliance (NWAA), BAE Systems and the Universities of Manchester, Lancaster, Salford, Central Lancashire, Liverpool (including the Virtual Engineering Centre) and the National Nuclear Laboratories Limited and supported by Lancashire County Council (LCC) and BIS.
Activity in the programme will receive £4.42m of Regional Growth Funding and £4.6m of in kind contribution from the aforementioned delivery partners.
The programme takes the requirements of potential autonomous systems end users and translates these into technology requirements. These technology requirements are then publicised through technology calls with the purpose of engaging SMEs with applicable technologies in need of further development.
GAMMA provides the SMEs with funding support, technical development expertise to exploit new technology platforms developed in conjunction with the GAMMA programme partners, providing a potential route to market exploitation.
A more detailed breakdown of the technologies required in the GAMMA programme can be found on the GAMMA website – gammaprogramme.co.uk
