DASA is running a Market Exploration on behalf of the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) Naval Ships Support Central Engineering Team.  

 The aim is to identify available hybrid powertrain technologies, at Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) 5-9, for implementation into service by 2030.   

 Royal Navy Ships and Auxiliaries have long development times; any potential solutions need to be adaptable for retrofitting to existing and future platforms. 

 This exploration will allow a better understanding of what is currently available for use and what approaches could be considered for the future.

Please note that this request for information is not a commitment to subsequently launch a formal DASA competition.
