Meet our senior executives
We deliver innovative solutions for industry, society and the environment through great science – and we can’t do that without great people.
CSIRO information sciences group
This group houses the core of CSIRO’s research in astronomy, mathematical services and information and communication technologies.
Robust, dependable flying robots
CSIRO is developing technologies supporting the safe, reliable, and cost effective operation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for scientific and civilian applications.
UAV finds (and nearly saves) Outback Joe (Podcast 15 Oct 2012)
In what is believed to be a world-first for a non-military drone, an Unmanned Airborne Vehicle (UAV) was able to locate a dummy of a missing bushwalker without human intervention during the A$50,000 Outback Challenge in Kingaroy, Queensland. (9:11)
Smart vehicles to handle hot metal safely
We're applying technology developed for mining vehicles to hot metal carriers, the vehicles used in aluminium smelters to move hot metal from the pot lines to the casting machines.
Bath time’s over for computer models
It’s time for computer models of tsunamis and storm surges to get out of the bath, according to a CSIRO researcher speaking at the Coast to Coast Conference in Brisbane on September 21, 2012. More realistic models are needed for infrastructure planners and emergency managers to better prepare for disasters.
CSIRO innovation advancing government services
The impact of demographic changes, urbanisation and emerging economic constraints are reshaping the way public services are delivered. Governments need to develop new business delivery models and systems that will be citizen centric, adaptable and cost effective.
CSIRO Complex Systems Science
The CSIRO Complex Systems Science team supports a network of scientists who research complex systems, by providing opportunities for collaboration, sharing of ideas and capacity building.
Unmanned aircraft to the ResQu
Unmanned aircraft could provide vital intelligence to help Australian authorities fight natural disasters, such as the 2011 Queensland floods, thanks to a $7 million project underway in Brisbane.
Robots fly to the rescue (Podcast 13 Jul 2012)
The development of potentially lifesaving unmanned aircraft capable of flying in conditions considered too dangerous for manned aircraft, is being fast-tracked under the joint research venture Project ResQu. (8:24)
