The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) support of the Geospatial Systems Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is delivering leading and valuable geospatial insights to support Defence science and technology. Our funding of two PhD studentships is advancing Defence ambitions in digital twins and innovative transfer learning over future, smart cities. As a member of the CDT Industrial Board, we enjoy participating in an energetic CDT that is outwards facing and producing the next generation of geospatial analysts. Events such as the CDT Annual Assembly and Innovation Festival attract diverse, industrial suppliers of relevance to Defence, offering direct access to doctoral students and their research. Our participation and support of the Geospatial Systems CDT continues to offer Defence benefits, while mirroring the Dstl values of innovation, collaboration and impact.

Blueline’s engaged with the CDT Geospatial team to analyse over 9 million sets of journey records in order to better understand mobility trends in our region, helping the firm and other stakeholders to plan for future transport schemes and green policies. The comprehensive reports and analysis produced by the CDT allowed Blueline to make effective strategic decisions based on novel insights and has informed decision-making and our investment into the region. Hugely valuable.
