Babcock and Arqit Battlelab Innovation Day

Demonstrating Future Capabilities: SwarmCore

Venue: Defence BattleLab, Dorset Innovation Park, Winfrith Newburgh. Wool, Dorchester DT2 8ZB

Date: 30 November, 2023 – 0930hrs – 1500hrs

The Opportunity

The defence landscape is becoming increasingly digital, and in a world of significant instability, national security has never been more important.

So we’re inviting a select group of our partners, customers and stakeholders to join Babcock’s Future Capabilities Team on Thursday 30th November 2023 from 09.30 hrs to 15:00 hrs for a demonstration of technology innovation as we showcase our SwarmCore product in partnership with Arqit’s Symmetric Key Agreement Platform.

You’ll get the chance to observe the joint progress of our Towards a Quantum Enabled Cloud (TQEC) Project, funded by Innovate UK, and the advancements in multi-domain swarming technology & quantum encryption with our command & control (C2) software: SwarmCore.

The Demonstration

We will showcase how Babcock has integrated Arqit’s Symmetric Key Agreement Platform to secure battlefield comms against current and future forms of cyber-attack, even from a quantum computer.

We will also show how an integrated swarm senses and confirms targets and location information, as well as how interconnected assets can perform complex tasks to effect targets.

Can someone else attend if I am unable?

Yes, we ask that if you are unable to attend the event that the invite be given to an appropriate specialist representative of your team or organisation.

Will there be media present?

Filming of the day will be taking place but this is a day for industry engagement so no external media will be present. If you do not wish to partake in any photography or filming, please indicate this in the registration form.

Will Babcock and Arqit be DSEI in September?

Babcock’s Future Capabilities Team will be available throughout DSEI to discuss our technology capabilities at H7-600. If you have any questions about the BattleLab demonstration or you would like to set up a specific meeting with us at DSEI please email us at [email protected]

Arqit will be based in the Future Tech Hub at H1-357. Arrange a meeting with us by contacting [email protected] to find out more about how we can dynamically create, manage, and rotate symmetric keys for a secure, resilient and integrated digital theatre of operations.
