More, together: Defence Science and Technology Strategy 2030
Australia faces an increasingly challenging and contested security environment over the next decade. The 2016 Defence White Paper outlined the Government’s commitment to ensuring Australia maintains a regionally superior Australian Defence Force (ADF) with the highest levels of military capability and scientific and technological sophistication.
To meet the challenges of our evolving context, the Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group has led the development of a new science and technology (S&T) strategy for Defence, in consultation with senior leadership across Defence, industry, academia and international partners.
More, together marks an important step in taking us into the future to deliver strategic advantage across the full spectrum of Defence capabilities. Focusing our national S&T enterprise on mission-directed research will ensure Defence is best positioned to realise capability advantage in a rapidly evolving environment.
