Australian Space Agency
The Australian Government established the Australian Space Agency on 1 July 2018, following a $300 million investment in Australian civil space as part of the 2018-19 Budget.
The Australian Space Agency is responsible for the whole-of-government coordination of civil space matters. The Agency will transform and grow a globally respected space industry that can inspire all Australians through seven National Civil Space Priorities – position, navigation and timing; earth observation; communication technologies services, leapfrog R&D, space situational awareness, robotics and automation, and access to space.
Through the Agency, Australia aims to significantly grow its market segment from 10,000 jobs and a market size of $3.9 billion to up to another 20,000 jobs and $12 billion by 2030.
