DST's energetic systems and effects research program enables critical science and technology to enhance, shape and transform ADF warfighting capability.
Our handy fact sheets give an overview of important aspects of our research and facilities.
DST researchers are looking to fuse imagery from modern infrared sensors and laser detection and ranging (LADAR) sensors to obtain high accuracy threat recognition for efficient countermeasure response.
High-power radio-frequency (HPRF) directed energy weapons (DEW) intentionally aims to couple electromagnetic energy into the circuitry of targeted electronic hardware at sufficient levels to cause operational disruption or damage.
The Modelling Complex Warfighting Strategic Research Investment seeks to revolutionise how operations analysis is undertaken to better handle the interaction of complex geopolitical, social, technological, economic and cultural factors.
