Dr. Bill Schofield AM worked in the Department of Defence [DSTO] for 37 years rising to the position of Director of the Aeronautical and Maritime Research Laboratories with the remit to supply all science and technology services to the Navy and the Air force. The laboratory consisted of 1000 scientists and engineers divided into 6 divisions. Before that he held the position of First Assistant Secretary Science Policy of the Defence Department in Canberra where he was responsible in negotiating all S&T outcomes with the ADF and the Defence Materiel Organisation.
