Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) is part of Australia’s Department of Defence. It is the second largest public-funded R&D organisation in Australia.
DSTG is the lead agency responsible for deploying science and technology solutions to help safeguard Australia, both in terms of research and development at home, and supporting our teams around the world. It is both a critical development hub but also an exciting technological force on the leading edge of research and technology.
DSTG leads the Government’s 10-year $730 million Next Generation Technologies Fund to deliver game-changing Defence capabilities in collaboration with industry and academia. DSTG has 14 strategic alliances with key defence companies and research agencies in addition to partnership agreements with 32 Australian universities to help develop the country’s defence research potential. It is one of the most exciting times for us to look at this particular part of the Defence network.
