Future proofing

DST Group seeks to ensure that Australia is well positioned to meet the Defence and security challenges of the future.

To do this, we investigate and monitor emerging technologies to ensure that we can exploit any opportunities they may offer in terms of Defence capability.

We also run an Enabling Research Program which focuses on a number of priority areas including cyber, electronic warfare, counter improvised explosive devices, next-generation over the horizon radar and hypersonics.
