Biographies

The Weapons Research Establishment was formed in January 1955 after an amalgamation between the Long Range Weapons Establishment and several other defence research facilities. The Establishment consisted of five wings; the Weapons Research and Development Wing, the Applied Physics Wing, the Engineering Wing, the Trial Wing and the Administrative Wing. In April 1978 the Establishment was divided into four laboratories, which were known collectively as the Defence Research Centre.

The Long Range Weapons Establishment (Australia) was set up in 1947 within the Dept. of Supply. It changed its name in the 1950s to the Weapons Research Establishment (Australia), and in 1974 came under the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (Australia). In 1979 its name was changed to the Defence Research Centre Salisbury and in 1987 it became known as the Defence Science and Technology Organisation, Salisbury. Works by these bodies are found under the name used at the time of publication.
