DASA Open Call Innovation Focus Area: Open data sharing solution

Delivering an open data sharing solution

Defence needs to share data across its enterprise, (with other nations, other government departments, across the services and with its supply base). There is a vast amount of data originating from many sources (system sensors and data buses, operational activities, engineering, logistic and supply chain transactions, financial and commercial systems of record), all with different data owners. The sharing of data in accordance with the full range of business rules, dependent on who you are, what organisation you work in and the role you fulfil, is complicated, time consuming and inefficient.

The challenge is to demonstrate the ability to analyse and share structured and unstructured multi-source data, maintaining its classification and permission-based access rules at machine speed. Any user within the enterprise should be able to request information and dependent on individual permissions, role and organisation, the request should be serviced from a common dataset, but the information presented to the user should be based on their data access rights.

DASA are looking for solutions that:

  • deliver a working prototype to resolve data sharing challenges
  • will work with some or all MOD legacy systems
  • meet Defence security requirements
  • are evergreen and cyber resilient
  • can be delivered as a service rather than a system
  • enable interoperability through open architectures, standards and open data/document formats
  • can be easily accessed by multiple users through a common user interface simultaneously
  • have potential for MOD accreditation (although we do not want to constrain innovation at this stage)

Please find below the titles of the data sets that will be provided for the ‘Delivering an open data sharing solution’ Innovation Focus Area. These data sets will be provided to successful bidders only, once security clearance has been confirmed. Successful users will be granted access to datasets from the C130J Hercules platform provided by three different countries, as outlined below:
