Defence research and development (R&D) is at the heart of what we do at DSO. As Singapore's largest national defence R&D organisation, DSO is entrusted with the critical mission of developing technological surprises to enhance Singapore's defence capabilities. With more than 50 research areas across the domains of air, land, sea, space and cyberspace, DSO shapes the future of defence with our imagination and dare-to-do spirit in the relentless pursuit of the next big idea.

CSIT was established in 2003. We are an agency in the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) that conducts R&D in infocomm and infosecurity technologies. CSIT has a strong focus in cyber security, data analytics and information technology. We nurture technical talents in these areas to meet Singapore’s security needs. In our efforts to develop robust solutions for Singapore’s security needs, CSIT leverages on commercial expertise and works closely with local research institutions, defence R&D and support organisations, and start up companies.
