The pair begin discussing the evolution of the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) and how it is working to help deliver key capability outcomes in line with the Defence Strategic Review and the creation of the Advanced Strategic Capabilities Accelerator (ACSA).

They then move on to the role DSTG plays in bringing together Defence, industry, and academic institutions around the country through organisations like the Australian Defence Science and Universities Network (ADSUN) and the NSW-based Defence Innovation Network (DIN) to bring together the best and brightest to solve the unique scientific challenges that face the Australian Defence Force.

Finally, they discuss the opportunities available to industry and academia to work with DSTG to deliver capability outcomes for the Australian warfighter.
