Basic Space Facts - Australia

428 views

Published on

Australians pay for, rely on and use satellites in everyday life: weather reports, surf reports, GPS, ATMs/banking, earth observation for farmers, bushfire monitoring, coastal monitoring, ocean protection, outback communication, many apps in your phone, live news, live sport on TV. All of this is space.
Yet Australia remains the only developed country without a national Space Agency, which could leverage partnerships with other space agencies to drastically lower the cost of satellite data access and create a new industry in Australia that would be sustained into the far future.

  13. 13.  Ad Hoc in the 1950s/60s  Australian Space Office 1980s  ASRP 2009-2013  Australia remains a 100% import space economy  Fully dependent on other country’s satellite data  NBN x2 and Optus x2 are USA built / maintained
  14. 14. The AustralianGovernment is the largest customer of space-derived information and so has most to gain from cheaper, more secure domestic services Civil Space is an obscure hidden department currently under:  Department of Industry Innovation and Science  Industry ▪ Space Coordination Office  Previously: Department of Industry  Previously: Department of Education andTraining  Previously: Department of Industry Innovation,Climate Change, Science, Research andTertiary Education  Previously: Department of Industry Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education  Previously: Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research  Previously: Department of Industry,Tourism and Resources  Previously: Department of Industry, Science and Resources  Previously: Department of Science, Industry andTourism  Previously: …… (2001…)

  17. 17. Australia could function fully with US$14m
  18. 18.  For Australia, outer space is about achieving our national needs better, cheaper and more effectively, using satellites.  As the sixth largest landmass in the world, there are many strategic reasons to rely on satellites: national security, finance, agriculture and communication all have critical requirements in satellite imagery, SATCOM and GPS navigation.  However, Australia is currently missing out on, and will continue to miss out on, opportunities in the absence of a national framework to support international engagement and domestic self-reliance in this global sector.
  19. 19.  ImplementationArm of the National Space Policy: Satellite Utilisation Policy 2013 The Role of Government  Key elements of a national space framework include:  National priority setting  Formal treaty-level International engagement
  20. 20.  Creation  Authority  Mandate  TechnicalCompetence  5 year budget  10 year InternationalAgreements  Survives a Change of Government
  21. 21.  Every space agency and company in the world will be in Australia in September 2017 for the IAC.  A federal space agency is required to tap into the global supply chain, foster an Australian export market, employ local talent, create jobs and create a new manufacturing sector.  Several space agencies are ready to sign bilateral agreements and provide capacity building, knowledge transfer, technology transfer and make purchase orders for Australian products.  Legally this cannot be done without a Federal Space Agency which has a mandate, authority and technical competence.
