Impact case studies
The Distal Footprints project provides Australia’s mineral explorers with the tools needed to discover the continent’s hidden mineral wealth.
The Advanced Resource Characterisation Facility (ARCF) delivers high quality and accurate information to improve the understanding of mineral resources.
The Plant Breeding project aims to develop major food crop varieties which will enable the feeding of a global population of nine billion.
Supporting Synchrotron Science
The Synchrotron provides a state of the art facility which is accelerating our scientific research.
CSIRO's Reversible Addition Fragmentation chain Transfer (RAFT) technology enables the development of new and advanced materials.
The first decision support tool that forecasts agricultural innovation adoption rates, initiated by Cooperative Research Centre Future Farm Industries. The Adoption and Diffusion Outcome Prediction Tool (ADOPT) encourages users to consider the influence of a set of population and innovation characteristics on uptake.
Coviu An ON Program case study Coviu is a modern and easy-to-use software solution for video consultations in healthcare. Coviu provides a turn‑key telehealth solution that goes beyond face-to-face consultation and includes the ability to share and discuss medical imaging, and to book and pay for appointments.
PainChek® is a smartphone-based medical device used to assess pain in non-verbal people. It is the world’s first pain assessment tool with regulatory clearance in Australia and Europe.
Silentium Defence - An ON Program Case Study
Silentium Defence provides situational awareness solutions through passive radar technology.
Energy Waste Roadblock
Energy Waste Roadblock project identifies multiple commercial applications for captured energy waste.
Dry slag granulation
Our sustainable, dry method for slag granulation derives value from waste and has the potential to transform the metal and cement industries.
PhotonAssay: gold detection
We developed and commercialised a disruptive new gold analysis solution that uses powerful x-rays for rapid results.
Ore sorter for copper and iron
We developed the world's first sensor system for large-scale ore sorting. It rapidly determines ore grade to cost-effectively sort minerals of value from waste. The technology can significantly boost productivity for mining companies and is available to the international market through NextOre.
Mine ventilation air methane
We have developed and trialed three technologies that mitigate methane emissions, either by destroying the gas or capturing it, to improve mine health and safety and reduce fugitive mine methane emissions.
Water in the resources sector
We work towards sustainable groundwater resources management by extractive energy and mineral resources sectors. Our research leads to manageable environmental impacts and greater socio-economic benefits.
Our research assesses climate change impacts on groundwater resources to inform management strategies for its protection now and into the future.
eReefs is a platform that provides a picture of what is currently happening on the reef, and what will likely happen in the future. We are collaborating on eReefs with the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, AIMS, Bureau of Meteorology and the Queensland Government.
Penthrox green whistle
We helped Medical Development International move into the European market by creating a new, scalable and reliable manufacturing process for their Penthrox 'green whistle' pain-relieving drug.
CSIRO tools connecting and improving electronic patient information across the health system.
