Vision: To be a world leader in defence science and technology, indispensable in transforming the Australian Defence Force and Australia’s national security.
Defence Science and Technology (DST) is the Australian government’s lead agency responsible for applying science and technology to safeguard Australia and its national interests.
It is one of Australia’s largest employers of scientists and engineers who deliver expert, impartial advice and innovative solutions for Defence and national security. Defence Science and Technology (DST) is part of Australia’s Department of Defence. It is the second largest public-funded R&D organisation in Australia.
Headed by the Chief Defence Scientist, DST has an annual budget of approximately $430 million and employs approximately 2100 staff, predominantly scientists, engineers, IT specialists and technicians.
They work closely with industry, universities and the scientific community to support Australia’s defence and national security capabilities and to contribute to national wealth.
DST is the lead agency responsible for deploying science and technology solutions to help safeguard Australia, both in terms of research and development at home, and supporting our teams around the world. It is both a critical development hub but also an exciting technological force on the leading edge of research and technology.
DST leads the Government’s 10-year $730 million Next Generation Technologies Fund to deliver game-changing Defence capabilities in collaboration with industry and academia. DST has 14 strategic alliances with key defence companies and research agencies in addition to partnership agreements with 32 Australian universities to help develop our research potential. It is one of the most exciting times for us to look at this particular part of the Defence network.
Defence Science and Technology (DST) OUTLOOK will look at the projects the DST is currently working on, as well as their future plans. This will include examining success stories from their recent past, to analysing some of its recent and ongoing intelligence support roles to troops in conflict zones. It will provide case studies on projects, and showcase the potential for those students being guided towards STEM subjects.
Through access to the Chief Defence Scientist and the heads of the various DST divisions, we will bring the reader inside the agency that houses some of the most brilliant minds in Australia.
This publication will be compelling reading for those within the organisation, MP’s and senior executives within government, senior members of the ADF, academia, and the whole range of businesses that currently interact with Defence, or who may wish to do so in the future.
The publication will be perfect bound, glossy, and produced to the highest quality, using the latest digital technology to combine designer page layouts and eye-catching photography.
