Scientific publications

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
This report describes an algorithm that introduces new discretisation levels to support the representation of low probability values in the context of Bayesian network anomaly detection.
Technical note
Technical note
This report provides an overview of battery technologies and related issues relevant to their use in military land vehicles.
Technical note
Technical note
This note works through an example of switching between many coordinate systems using a modern matrix language that lends itself to describing arenas with multiple entities such as found in many Defence scenarios.

This report provides such a horizon scan for Combat Service Support (CSS). Global trends and the results of science and technology literature scans across seven domains (power and energy, transportation, robotic and autonomous systems, materials and manufacturing, sensors, information and communication technology, and health technologies) are presented.
Technical report
Technical report
An investigation into the use of the Instron ElectroPuls E3000 for the purpose of fatigue crack growth rate testing of structural materials was conducted.
Technical report
Technical report
This report presents an overview of the theoretical concepts and definitions of uncertainty, and the uncertainty visualisation techniques that have been investigated to date, and how this work can be applied to support situation awareness and decision making in the Australian Defence Force’s Joint Operations Command.
Technical report
Technical report
A comparative study of the two methods was carried out to ascertain whether the xCELLigence real-time cell analysis (RTCA) platform could be used to deliver a more objective and robust measure of TCID50.
Research report
Research report
A novel wavelet-based sparse signal representation technique is used to separate the main and tail rotor blade components of a helicopter from the composite radar returns. The received signal consists of returns from the rotating main and tail rotor blades, the helicopter body, possible land or sea clutter, and other residual components, which may all overlap in time and frequency; and therefore conventional time and frequency separation techniques cannot be applied. A sparse signal representation technique is now proposed for this problem with the tunable Q wavelet transform used as the dictionary. The proposed algorithm is demonstrated using both simulated and real radar data (X and Ku-band), and is capable of extracting the components of interest successfully.
Technical note
