Professor Brant Gibson - Harnessing the photonic power of diamonds to develop powerful sensing applications

Diamonds, they say, are forever. One of nature’s most precious stones, they hold potential far beyond their ornamental value. As nanodiamonds (microparticles), they have found use in medicine, electronic applications and even defence through quantum photonics, where their ability to fluoresce can be used to sense magnetic fields. 

Support in times of crisis - DSI COVID-19 response

Support in times of crisis - DSI COVID-19 response

Australia’s small to medium enterprises (SMEs) make up over 95% of businesses countrywide, forming an important part of the economy. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, they were some of the first to be affected, with restrictions curbing their activity and revenue. To keep these SMEs afloat while continuing to help Victorian researchers further their work in the realm of defence, the Defence Science Institute (DSI) offers a range of grants to facilitate mutually constructive collaborations.

Machine Learning Accelerates Cyber Security

Machine Learning Accelerates Cyber Security

As society moves more services and data online, the attack surface for cyber criminals increases – presenting a major risk to organisations.

When cybersecurity start-up, Cydarm Technologies, identified alert triage as the key to efficient incident response, the team enlisted the skills of Federation University Australia IT PhD candidate, Paul Black, in an internship brought about by the collaboration of APR.Intern, Australia’s only not-for-profit PhD internship program, and Defence Science Institute (DSI).

Professor Guoxing Lu - Making an impact on Victoria's Defence endeavours

Victoria’s universities are host to some of the country’s best research minds with the potential to propel Australia’s Defence interests. As industry and the government look to collaborate with academia to achieve optimal solutions to the country’s defence and security challenges, universities provide the perfect setting to foster long-standing relationships within the defence network.
