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.
