DSTO has released a new publication covering its research highlights and activities for 2013-14.

The DSTO Annual Review 2013-14 showcases select examples of science and technology delivering capability outcomes for Defence and national security. 

In his overview, Chief Defence Scientist Dr Alex Zelinsky said DSTO’s performance during 2013-14 had been strong in each of its core roles – support to operations, sustainment, acquisition, future-proofing and national security.  “We have been highly responsive in meeting priority operational demands by providing innovative solutions for the protection of Australian troops in combat zones and equipping them with effective capabilities,” he said. “Our program of through-life support for Defence assets continues to deliver significant cost savings and enhanced capabilities.”

DSTO published two major reports, a foresighting study called Forward 2035 and a cyber science and technology plan titled Cyber 2020 Vision.

A key highlight of the Annual Review is DSTO’s lesser known but significant involvement in the search for Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, and its role in the expedition to secure the wreck of the World War I submarine AE2.

The DSTO Annual Review 2013-14 is now available.
