Demonstrations from start-ups and SMEs to take place at DSEI’s Innovation Hub this September

Published: 30 July 2019 - Rachael Morling

Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) is a biennial platform for the display of defence and security equipment and services from around the world. The event will be taking place from the 10th-13th September 2019 at the ExCel Centre, London.

The DSEI Innovation Hub provides a platform for start-ups and SMEs to demonstrate emerging, forward-facing technologies and products to global militaries and industry. The Innovation Theatre within the Hub will allow for practical demonstrations of the latest developments on offer.

Exhibitors in the Hub will include ESROE, which will display the world’s smallest radar Electronic Support Measures (ESM) system, their MicroESM. This is a key sensor for major military platforms, providing passive detection and identification of military and civilian radar signals. The MicroESM provides a radar ESM capability for platforms for which similar systems have previously been too large or power-consuming, including in drones, unmanned vessels, soldier-borne sensors, and armoured and unarmoured vehicles.

Jon Roe, ESROE CEO, said: “The Innovation Hub provides us, as a micro SME, a cost effective way of making the most of DSEI to showcase our innovative technology. We will be exhibiting our production system for the first time and we believe that DSEI will give us a worldwide audience."

HAELO will display its Enterprise Control software which works to bridge gaps in situational awareness and alert users to threats and issues, allowing them to maintain full alertness and control in complex and fast-paced project environments.

The Hub will also welcome Phonexia, which specialises in the development of speech technologies to assist government agencies, police forces and forensic experts in speech analysis. They will be launching two new products at DSEI - Phonexia Screen which allows intelligence agencies to search for speakers and content within large audio recordings, and the latest version of its speaker identification technology called DeepEmbeddings, the first commercially available voice biometric engine using exclusively deep neural networks to produce swift and accurate results. This technology can identify unique features to map individual’s voices directly to their unique fixed-length records called ‘voice-prints’.

Also present will be BOXARR, whose platform builds dynamic software models to create a digital replica of an organisation in order to analyse and optimise operational process efficiency, helping to quickly and effectively understand and visualise complex data and identify inefficiencies and risks. 

The Innovation Hub can be found in the Joint Zone at DSEI 2019.
