Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and Flinders University have established a research centre to study energetic materials and explosives.

The Centre of Expertise in Energetic Materials will study the chemistry of energetic materials to support the Australian Defence Force (ADF) with improved explosives, pyrotechnics and propellants.

DSTO will fund A$200,000 over three years along with additional research costs.
