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.

The goal of this report is, using the 2005 survey of the civilian population, to determine if a survey of the potential aircrew population could be conducted at fewer locations, hence, saving both time and money.

Technical note

This technical note considers a sensor that alternates randomly between working and broken versus a target that reluctantly gives away glimpses as a homogenous Poisson process.

The flow structures around a hemispherical protuberance were studied using dye-injection flow visualisation in the DST Group Water Tunnel. A 100 mm diameter hemisphere was placed in a laminar oncoming boundary layer, and video imaging of the dye streamlines were captured at diameter-based Reynolds numbers of 6:91 x 10^3 and 1:15 x 10^4. The observations generally agree well with previous studies, while analysis of the video footage has provided additional insight into the evolution of the unsteady flow field.
