UDRC (University Defence Research Collaboration)

The UDRC (University Defence Research Collaboration) has featured in the Financial Times, The Herald and Forbes Magazine, outlining the impact of the research to develop new software to process information acquired from the huge range of sensors present in the modern battlefield, ranging from radar and sonar to mobile phones.

In an unrelated programme, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) in America is teaming with neural, cognitive and behavioral science experts to understand the science to harness their "gut instinct".

Although the two programmes are unrelated they could be complementary, says Mike Davies of Edinburgh University, director of UDRC. The £4m UK project aims to give military personnel the information most useful to them, without any confusing extraneous signals. Then the US research can kick in, using psychology to enhance their decisions.
