FrazerLab to commercialise DST radar technology

The Department of Defence’s Defence Science and Technology (DST) branch is set to commercialise its technology under a 10-year agreement with South Australian start-up FrazerLab, to help bring in the next generation of high-frequency radar.

FrazerLab provides high-frequency radars and support systems for government and industry clients in Australia and the United States, according to DST.

Chief Defence Scientist Professor Tanya Monro said the agreement would help develop a roadmap for DST in supporting new defence industries.

“The agreement is a valuable example of how DST can successfully spin off intellectual property to new start-up companies while at the same time strengthening Australia’s defence industry, enhancing future Defence capability and boosting exports,” she said.

Prof Monro added that it was important that DST aligns itself with small start-ups and that the transfer of DST’s intellectual property “was critical in fostering new defence industries to meet the unique capability needs of the Australian Defence Force”.

The commercialisation agreement was signed by the Chief of DST’s Intelligence Surveillance and Space Division, Andrew Seedhouse, and FrazerLab Chief Executive Officer Dr Gordon Frazer.
