UFO Article (Blog):
“The Joint Intelligence Organisation (JIO),
the Defence Science & Technology Organisation (DSTO), the Sea Fury encounter and UFOs”

Quote from the article:
“In a series of reviews, Keith Basterfield describes the contents of Department of Defence file 529/1/16 Part 1 titled ‘DSTO records of unidentified aerial phenomena,’ secured through his persistent efforts and the financial support of UFOR(NSW). The contents were especially interesting to me as they confirmed the picture I had determined in my research and interviews with some of the parties described such as Harry Turner, George Barlow and John Farrands. The DSTO file also supplements the picture described in the JIO file release which Keith also facilitated.

The files confirm that the JIO & DSTO involvement were the legacy of Harry Turner who headed up the nuclear scientist section of DSTI within the JIO. His role was pivotal in the continuing dance that DSTO & JIO had with UFOs.”

It is Australia’s second largest government-funded science organisation after the CSIRO. The agency’s name was changed from Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) to Defence Science and Technology Group on 1 July 2015.[1]”
