Utilising Australia’s unique geography to develop space analogue facilities (Event)

Activity: Industry, Government and Philanthropy Engagement and PartnershipsMembership of an advisory panel/policy group/ board


CSIRO define space analogue facilities as including ground-based environments for humans and robotic exploration and habitation; ground-based satellite calibration and validation; and space environment testing facilities. CSIRO want to engage with Australian universities, industry, government and relevant societies to identify: What analogue facilities are currently available within Australia? Are there additional analogue facilities that Australia could host, and what are our competitive advantage in hosting them would be? What new future science can be done from existing and potential facilities that would offer new opportunities to the Australian space sector? Is there a role for the CSIRO, and what would it be?
