Defence Science and Technology is part of Australia's Department of Defence. It is the second largest public-funded R&D organisation in Australia.
As part of the First Principles Review implementation, from 1 July 2015 the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) has been renamed as the Defence Science and Technology Group. This change gives effect to the One Defence business model recommended in the First Principles Review.
Moving to the new title does not affect any current contracts, working arrangements or points of contact.
The name change will be progressively implemented on this website and other communications material over the coming months.
