LONDON, May 1 (UPI) -- Britain’s Ministry of Defense is seeking innovative research proposals to enhance national defense and security for possible development.

In an announcement earlier this week, it said the Center for Defense Enterprise, part of the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory, is holding an event in London to bring together Ministry experts and science and technology providers to discuss proposals.

Two competitions will be launched by CDE: defense against airborne threats and information processing and sense-making. The first will include proposals for novel techniques of defense that don’t involve interceptor missiles. The second seeks solutions to challenges in the areas of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

The Center for Defense Enterprise funds research into novel, high-risk, high-potential defense technologies.

The Innovation Networking Day is "open to members of industry and academia who wish to discuss their research proposals with defense experts, understand the requirements, or bring a truly innovative idea which could benefit the UK’s defense and security," the ministry said.

The Innovation Networking Day is being held in London on May 22.
