This paper assesses strategic factors that will affect the relevance and applicability of future science and technology developments to Australian defence, on the basis of these factors sets criteria for defence enabling research and development (R&D), then assigns priorities to defence technology fields for future development against these criteria. Sections of the paper summarise Australia's strategic outlook, Australia's defence policy, military trends, current and projected Australian Defence Force capabilities, the criteria for defence enabling R&D and particular defence technology areas. The paper was produced to assist the Enabling R&D Advisory Group of the Defence Science and Technology Organisation of the Australian Department of Defence. It will also be useful for those planning future directions for defence-related science and technology research in industry, universities, or other research bodies.
