DSTL is the UK MoD research agency and leads efforts to maximise the impact of science & technology for the defence of the UK.


DSTL often needs to search highly classified physical archives. In 2016 Martin was engaged as a Software Engineer to bring online a C#/SQL system to digitise, index, search and organise archived material.


Captured user requirements; produced threat assessment and security protocols; applied technical defences; repaired and re-configured legacy bespoke catalogue software; developed systems for uploading physical material; tested OCRs; and produced development roadmap for system expansion.


Successfully produced a service catalogue in 3 months, improving access times and search accuracy.
