Welcome to the Three Counties Defence and Security Expo (3CDSE) 2020.From its origin as a networking forum, 3CDSE has evolved to become the UK’s most diverse and forward-thinking security expo. The annual show takes place at Malvern’s Three Counties Showground, where 3CDSE is also gaining a reputation as an active touchpoint for leading-edge technology and innovative strategic thinking. As well as introducing SME’s to procurement decision-makers and influencers in the MoD and Law Enforcement agencies, the show is also a successful forum for mutually beneficial commercial discussions between SME’s and Primes. 3CDSE is proud of our ever-expanding network of connections and relationships. These include MoD, in particular DE&S, JFC and jHuB Innovation, as well as both UK and foreign intelligence, Government and Law enforcement agencies.

 

3CDSE works closely with MoD, in particular DE&S, JFC and jHuB Innovation. It engages both UK and foreign intelligence, Government and Law enforcement agencies.

 


The theme of 3CDSE is Innovation, with a focus on cyber security, hardware and vehicles, UAV and counter-UAV, manned and unmanned vehicles, technology and communications.

The Three Counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire comprise the hub of the UK’s defence and security industry – the “golden triangle” – with MoD based in Herefordshire, Qinetiq and the Malvern Cyber Cluster in Worcestershire and GCHQ in Gloucestershire, plus all the satellite industries which have grown up around them.

Several sources record that 90% of the UK’s defence and security innovation has its home in this triangle and at 3CDSE, there is a focus on business development.

"It's an opportunity to meet with end users and hear about the problems they are facing, the technology they are using and what does and doesn't work."

— Nicholas Hill, Plextek CEO

3CDSE is a unique showcase for this hub of innovation to share new ideas and host those involved in the industry nationally and internationally on their “home turf”. The show brings together senior military leading forces development and procurement, senior police engaged in the fight against cyber-crime, the intelligence and security agencies, and the industry innovators who supply them, to identify future strategies and needs.

3CDSE always has its targets set on the new threat landscape – how air, sea and land capabilities are evolving to become fit for purpose today and prepared for the new challenges and capability requirements of tomorrow. The term ‘hybrid warfare’ has increasingly become the focus, with cyber security, data management and even space operations entering the conversation. 3CDSE's exhibitors and presenters showcase bold new capabilities to meet these elusive new threat environments, both real and potential. These include (Unmanned Underwater Vehicle) and USV (Unmanned Surface Vehicle) systems as well as UAV and Counter-UAV threats. 3CDSE Expo has an excellent external area where physical systems, hardware and vehicles can be demonstrated on a live scale.


We wish to thank our sponsors, media and event partners for their support and contribution to the tremendous success of 3CDSE 2019 and look forward to welcoming our sponsors and partners to 3CDSE 2020.

LPA is a Veteran owned and managed Defence SME that focuses on the design, sourcing, integration, supply and support of soldier systems capabilities. Core products include specialist clothing, body armour, load carriage systems, unmanned systems (drones), weapon ancillaries, hearing protection, helmet systems, counter-UAV capabilities, personal weapons (both lethal and non-lethal), G2G Rocket Systems, and optics. Historically, our prime customer was the more specialist elements of UK MOD, however, we have consciously re-organised to broaden our customer base and now supply wider UK MOD, UK Police Forces, a range of European military forces, and several NATO forces. What differentiates us within our market place is our ability to genuinely understand Customer requirements, and then generate and integrate an affordable solution.  Critically, we deliver capabilities that work. LPA currently supplies a significant proportion of the clothing and personal protection equipment worn by ‘specialist’ UK soldiers, Armed Police, and UK military aircrews. Our portfolio of suppliers and customers continues to grow, whilst we remain agile and innovative in all that we do.
