Strategic alliance to boost defence science
The Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and BAE Systems Australia have entered into a new strategic alliance to enhance collaboration on defence technologies. The alliance will see the two organisations potentially work together on strategically significant areas such as submarines, cyber-security, land vehicles, space, electronic warfare and passive radar, hypersonics and autonomous systems.
The signing of the new alliance extends a working relationship DSTO and BAE Systems have had for many years, according to BAE Systems Australia Chief Executive Officer David Allott. With 1,500 engineers working on some of the most advanced defence systems and a 60-year history of supporting the Australian Defence Force, our people offer a wealth of innovation and experience,” Allott said.
