If you’re a science, technology or security stakeholder, Defence Science and Technology (DST) wants your help to develop Australia’s National Security Science and Technology (NSST) Strategy.

DST is working to build an integrated view of how science and technology can strengthen Australia’s national security capabilities.

The NSST strategy consultation gives you a chance to contribute to that view. It’s also a timely opportunity to consider how you might capitalise on providing support to the broader national security community.

Learn what DST wants to know from you and find out more about the consultation in the NSST Stakeholder Consultation document.

Submission deadline is 1 November 2019. Send your unclassified submissions direct to DST at

If your submission is classified, email DST at to let them know. They will get in touch to help you make your submission securely.
