For more than 100 years, DST and its predecessor organisations have been dedicated to the delivery of thorough, ground-breaking and innovative science.
The organisation's Strategic Plan 2013-18 outlines a comprehensive program to foster innovation for Defence, focusing on capability development and acquisition in partnership with industry, universities and government research organisations.

Our scientists continue to find novel and innovative solutions to Defence's technology challenges.
