As part of the Future Submarine Program Science and Technology Plan, the Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group is looking to establish long-term research initiatives around the Future Submarines.

This initiative, Research Network for Undersea Decision Superiority, will focus on the human element and will provide a mechanism to fund and oversee research projects that lead to improved decision making in the context of military operations in future submarines. The network is looking to partner with Australian universities and utilise the nation's expertise, networks and infrastructure.

The Defence Science Technolgoy Group said enabling submariners to make the best decisions possible in a low information environment has been identified as an area of focus for research to improve future capability.

As part of the process of setting up the network, a research capability and capacity building exercise is being undertaken to facilitate the establishment of a consensus on long-term needs and opportunities, as well as clear outcomes to guide the investment of resources.

Information sessions on the network, followed by formal facilitated workshops, will be undertaken this month around the country to establish research themes leading to the desired capability.

Interested defence personnel, defence industry participants and academics from the 32 Australian universities that are party to the Defence Science Partnering Deed have been invited to take part in a half-day workshop to develop the long-term initiatives and research.

A wide range of scientific disciplines have the ability to contribute to providing solutions, ranging from exercise physiologists, ergonomists, workplace psychologists, nutritionists and biomedical scientists to integration engineers, human factors researchers and others, the DST Group said.
