  • Fast Track grants of up to £200k, expected to be up to 15 months duration;
  • Pathfinder grants of up to £75k, expected to be up to 9 months duration.
  • Feasibility studies
  • Industrial research
  • Experimental development
Achieving higher TRL through airborne demonstration Flagship grants of up to £500K, normally expected to be up to 18 months duration
