Dstl staff work on some of the most unique and exciting challenges for the defence community. From our apprentices who learn their craft whilst working on everything from military vehicles to specialist electronics, to our scientists who develop and assess medical countermeasures to protect the UK and its armed forces against the threat of chemical or biological attack.
