DSI’s 2020 Milestones and Activities 

2020 was an extraordinary year, and at DSI, proved to be one of both challenge and opportunity. Transitioning to remote operations in response to the Pandemic, we pivoted our focus towards capability maintenance and the industry part of our university-defence-industry triangle, while maintaining strong relationships with all stakeholders.
