Five regions in Northern Australia were analysed and a dataset for the land backscatter coefficients was collated. The data analysis involved comparing the difference between observed backscatter ionograms (plots of the return power as a function of group range and frequency) and synthesised ionograms.
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.

The Navy Aviation Systems Program Office (NASPO) requested DST analyse a red substance that had been identified around bearings in the lubrication system of several RTM322 engines.
In this report we propose a concept for a casualty evacuation stretcher with continuous monitoring and automated care functionality.
The present report expands on the analysis of the loading from a buried improvised explosive device (IED) for a variety of sands and soils, where it was considered for only dry calcite sand in a previous DST report.
There has been some work in recent years on investigating the use of machine learning (ML) techniques in order to assist software vulnerability discovery. Motivated by the spectacular success of deep learning (DL) approaches in fields such as computer vision and natural language processing, we propose to study the application of DL techniques to software vulnerability discovery.
In this report we describe a preliminary study on the considerations, assumptions, and options for managing the structural Life-of-Type (LOT) of new Royal Australian Navy (RAN) ships.
In this report the development and verification of the Bistatic Radar Concept Demonstrator (BiRCD) system within the Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems Branch (SRS) is described.
In this report, we review the foundations of cross-validation and draw attention to common, but underappreciated, assumptions.
In this report a Travelling Wave Excitation System, developed by DST, is verified for use.
This document presents the anthropometric percentile data captured in the 2015 Anthropometric Survey of the Royal Australian Navy (ASRAN) and provides information on how to apply the data and assess designs. Additional information presented includes information on RAN secular trend, personal equipment and clothing correction factors, and other allowances that need to be considered when applying the anthropometric data.
