Australia faces an increasingly challenging and contested security environment over the next decade. The Defence White Paper 2016 outlined the Government’s intent to ensure a regionally superior ADF with the highest levels of military capability and technological sophistication.
The importance of science and technology (S&T) in delivering strategic advantage across the full spectrum of Defence capabilities is paramount. Success will be linked not only to a focused science, technology and research program but also to effectively leveraging and shaping the national S&T enterprise.
As the technological challenges to Defence capabilities are rapidly evolving and broadening, a new coordinated approach is envisioned for the delivery of Defence’s S&T outcomes which will accelerate and grow the scale of S&T activities.
