The cover of a scientific report
Our scientific output includes report literature

Our scientific and technical publications are an important vehicle for the dissemination of our work. 

We have several goals for our publications:

  • To communicate the results of the research program to clients and fulfil our reporting responsibilities to the Department of Defence.
  • To record the results of our research program.
  • To communicate the results of scientific research and technical information to Australian industry and academia.
  • To increase awareness of and enhance the reputation of DST Group.

Technical note
Technical note
Results reported here relate to changes over time of physical, visual and sensory measures, providing guidance as to the anticipated shelf life of each component and the ability of products to meet the warranty requirement that components remain suitable for use following up to 24 months storage at 30 °C. Recommendations to ensure such compliance are made..

Technical report
Technical report
This report discusses the Air Operations Division contribution to the Net Warrior demonstration event NW-D10. NW-D10 was held in September 2010 and demonstrated information interoperability of middleware technologies in dynamic environments with real mission systems. An overview of the NW-D10 event is provided along with a discussion of the technologies demonstrated. The outcomes of NW-D10 are presented and future Net Warrior events and enabling research are outlined.
Technical report
Technical report
This report provides an athropometric specification that can be used to support vehicle acquisitions and upgrades when no suitable data on the relevant ADF population is available.
Technical report
Technical report
This report focuses on understanding the characteristics of sea-spikes as they are often the cause of false detections in a radar processor.
Research report
Research report
Development of a Monte Carlo model of the fatigue life of corroded specimens of aluminium alloy 7010-T7651. The model simulates both the alloy’s metallurgical inclusions and corrosion pits using extreme value statistical distributions.
