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 report
Technical report
The paper identifies research challenges in addressing data integrity and, critically, proposes a new model that captures and supports a broader range of integrity dimensions and briefly discusses a use case for the model involving an actual implementation of a security device (Secure Information ATM or SIATM).
Technical report
Technical report
The purpose of this document is to review existing scientific literature and established work physiology models for the development of evidence-based load carriage guidelines. This guide is then distilled into an overview of key considerations for the management (i.e. preparation, execution and recovery) of personnel undertaking repeated load carriage tasks.
Technical report
Technical report
This report covers an experiment into the usability of a Battle Management System (BMS) under different levels of simulated vehicular motion in order to perform key command and control (C2) tasks.
Technical report
Technical report
The purpose of this project was to enhance DSTO's capability in understanding and modelling the thermodynamic and performance characteristics of gas turbine engines. An engine performance modelling tool was developed and validated and different tools and techniques were evaluated. Infrared suppression related studies were also conducted
Technical report
Technical report
Arbovirus is used to describe viruses transmitted via blood-feeding arthropods, such as mosquitoes, biting midges and ticks. This report focuses on characterisation of two unknown rhabdoviruses and describes a new method to prepare the virus samples for next-generation sequencing analysis.
Technical report
Technical report
This report describes the characterisation of two unknown bunyaviruses, designated Maprik (MPKV) and Buffalo Creek (BCV), and two unknown rhabdoviruses, designated Harrison Dam (HARDV) and Holmes Jungle (HOJV), using techniques such as PCR-select subtraction and next-generation sequencing.
Technical report
Technical report
This report outlines the development of an inverse-gated phosphorous nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy method for determining the purity of chemical warfare agents using reference standards contained within a glass stem coaxial insert. The operational simplicity of this method enables both quantitative and qualitative information to be rapidly gleaned from a single sample.
Technical report
Technical report
The development of a Proton quantitative Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (qHNMR) Spectroscopy method for determining the purity of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) using homogeneous internal standards.
Technical report
Technical report
The modelling of solid propellant ignition is investigated with the aim of implementation into the numerical code Casbar.
Technical report
Technical report
In this paper we analyse current PDF exploits and the future trends and the potential threat they pose.
