DSTA is continuously harnessing open source intelligence through developing in-house capabilities and adopting best-of-breed technologies to facilitate the collection and analysis of publicly available information in support of defence and national security needs.

Our systems provide the required information situational picture which enables our ops partners to quickly distil key insights from diverse and disparate information sources for informed decision-making. Through these systems, our ops partners are able to sense online perturbations, and apply their domain knowledge to identify patterns, trends and subtle relationships which provide unique insights into defence and national security issues.

In this highly dynamic environment, close collaboration with our ops partners is key to ensuring that the technology delivered by DSTA can be seamlessly integrated into their operations. This involves engineers working side-by-side with analysts to understand the operational requirements and develop feasible solutions. Through a continuous development approach, we rapidly develop functional prototypes which are able to synthesise data into actionable intelligence.
