What we do

Boosting UK economic growth by enabling companies to draw upon the most cutting-edge and game-changing dual-use technologies emerging from the civil and defence sectors

The Dual-Use Technology Exploitation (DUTE) Cluster is a £10 million programme supported by Government and Industry, and was created in 2015 to help boost UK economic growth by linking manufacturers from the civil and defence sectors - enabling them to benefit and grow from technology emerging in adjacent sectors such as Rail, Aviation, Aerospace and Automotive.

DUTE connects UK manufacturers with high-growth SMEs and technology start-ups - providing mentoring and technology showcasing opportunities as well as engendering innovation to create new disruptive technologies for customers.

The programme is led by Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group and supported by Axillium Research in partnership with Saietta Group, Airbus Helicopters, Cranfield University, C-Tech Innovation, Haydale Composite Solutions, Horsebridge Network Systems, KS Composites, NetComposites, Pro2Pro, Rinicom, SHD Composites, Sheffield Hallam University, TWI and XeraCarb.
