Weapons Science and Technology Centre

The WSTC core programme includes planning and delivery of research relating to:

  • All weapon constituent components and sub-systems, both complex weapons and general munitions, where complex weapons are defined as strategic and tactical weapons that make use of guidance systems to achieve precision effects;
  • Associated system elements (e.g. launcher, local sensors communications, targeting, fire control, mission Command and Control (C2) and platform integration);
  • Weapon system architectures;
  • Weapon platform integration;
  • Activities to support the overall objectives of future weapon procurement initiatives, such as driving down the cost of weapons and reducing time to service for equipment;
  • Weapons domain modelling and simulation;
  • Applications of cross-cutting technologies specific to weapons;
  • Energetic materials
