Defence science strategy predicts shift towards cyber threats

Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Organisation is to ramp up its work on cybersecurity and autonomous systems, according to its five-year strategy published on 12 April.

The organisation will identify a set of grand challenges and focus its efforts into “substantive, cross-disciplinary initiatives” to address them, the strategy says.

Though these themes are yet to be decided in detail, the strategy identifies a number of broad directions that the DSTO plans to take over the coming five years. These include autonomous systems, surveillance and space systems, and cybersecurity, all of which will receive increased funding.
