DST Group accesses and leverages world-leading science, technology, knowledge and innovation, through collaboration with industry, academia and international agencies. We work closely with these partners in order to provide quality advice and innovative solutions for Defence and national security.

Defence achieves a strategic technology advantage through the ability to access the best scientific expertise, technical capabilities and infrastructure, which complement DST capabilities. Science and industry partnerships also provide pathways for DST innovations to be transferred to others for the development of future capability.

We have the unique Defence domain knowledge and links with the national and international science and technology innovation community to facilitate the translation, application and integration of innovation from external partners to the Australian Defence environment.
