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.

General document
General document
This overseas visit report provides an overview of ICCRTS 2011. Including the three primary research areas that emerged from the conference of agility and what that means for organisational structures; the concept of "Harmony of Purpose" 1; and the need to develop better approaches to discovery of second and tertiary effects to decision making, operational analysis and nation building.
Technical note
Technical note
Computational Red Teaming describes the application of new and innovative analytic techniques, tools and methodologies in support of Red Teaming Activities. This report documents the formal design of such a tool, to inform the future direction of the DSTO research program.
Technical report
Technical report
This report presents examples of components from ADF aircraft that exhibited surface pitting which formed during the anodising pre-treatment process. In three of the examples, fatigue cracking had initiated from the surface pits leading to failure of the components.
Technical report
Technical report
A two-dimensional weight function approach is used to determine stress intensity factors for cracks in either tensile or compressive stress fields, due to one of three mechanisms: remote tension overload, remote compression overload or hole cold expansion.
Technical note
Technical note
The work described in this paper applies a UPDM-based architecture development approach to capture capability development information with an emphasis on developing a fit-for-purpose visualisation to support decision-making.
Technical note
Technical note
This report outlines experimental testing of a generic submarine model in its low speed wind tunnel, aimed at gathering steady-state aerodynamic force and moment data, and to investigate the flow-field characteristics on and around the bare-hull.
Technical note
Technical note
Computational Red Teaming describes the application of new and innovative analytic techniques, tools and methodologies in support of Red Teaming activities. A framework of three key activities: Information Management; Conduct and Execution; and Scrutiny and Analysis; is developed and decomposed into constituent functions for analysis.
Technical report
Technical report
This report describes a bi-axial approach that represents a significant advancement in vibration energy harvesting (VEH), specifically the approach increases the operational directionality from single-axis to 360 degrees in a plane.
Technical report
Technical report
This report discusses improved CTH hydrocode modelling of ejecta (soil, sand etc) from detonation of buried explosive devices using two phase material model.
Technical note
Technical note
A small scale drop tower arrangement was used to simulate the dynamics of a practice torpedo impacting a submarine’s pressure hull.
