Research Services Division
Our Research Services Division enables science and technology (S&T) for safeguarding Australia.
Research Services Division aims to be professional, lean and responsive, focused on delivering research services that directly support S&T and research activities.
Research Services Division delivers S&T research services that are:
- only required because DST is an S&T organisation
- delivered to enable S&T capabilities across DST
- specialist functions for which DST has unique S&T requirements or responsibilities
- not delivered by external shared service providers, and/or most efficiently or effectively delivered within DST by Research Services Division.
Some research services are also delivered to organisations external to DST such as other areas within Defence, the Australian Intelligence Community, our allies and/or our partners in industry and academia.
