The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl)

Dstl is the science inside UK defence and security.

With world-class scientists, technologists, engineers, and facilities, Dstl gives MOD, the armed forces, and the UK government a winning edge over our adversaries.

We work with industry, academia and internationally, using science and technology to help solve defence and security issues.

The PACE project at Dstl seeks to explore emerging technologies that will allow a deployed force to increase self-sufficiency, to deliver increased Operational Advantage and contribute to achieving Net Zero. PACE seeks to identify technologies and solutions which can provide advantage across multiple challenge areas including (but not limited to): food, water, waste, materiel, circular economy, power & energy (and storage).
