Defence Science and Technology

Defence Science and Technology (DST) works with the MOD’s Chief Scientific Adviser to make the greatest possible use of science and technology for the defence and security of the UK.

What we do

We support the armed forces and provide high quality expert scientific advice to ministers, senior commanders and officials. Our team is a mixture of specialists and generalists, civilian and military personnel.

Our priorities

Our priorities in 2014 are:

  • support to current defence and security operations
  • provide timely and effective advice to ministers and government
  • provide cost reduction and more future proof systems
  • plan for future defence capabilities that will be needed in the longer term
  • human and sociological aspects of defence capability
  • support to critical science and technology capabilities and facilities
