About the web site


The aim of this website is to connect members of the Defence Science and Technology alumni with each other and to maintain their links with the Australian Department of Defence, in particular, Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG). Science and technology play a vital role in the Australia's national security, and those who work in this domain individually and collectively make highly valued contributions. They also build strong relationships with their colleagues in DST, and the web site facilitates maintaining and developing further connections within this community.

This website is hosted and managed by the Department of Defence as part of the Chief Defence Scientist's initiative to foster an alumni of former Defence Science and Technology staff.
