CSIRO Space Industry Roadmap released
Earlier this week, CSIRO's space industry roadmap was launched by the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Karen Andrews at the 18th Australian Space Research Conference on the Gold Coast. The report highlights Australia's unique strengths and geographic advantages to increase its share of the international space sector. Developed in consultation with industry, the report presents three key opportunity areas for potential development, which can support the growth of Australia's 'space economy': (i) By building our capabilities in observing Earth from space, satellite communications, and positioning, navigation and timing data, we can grow new service-based businesses that address issues such as disaster and water management. (ii) By taking advantage of Australia's geographic position in the southern hemisphere, we can further our work with international programs that track objects in space, manage space debris, and enable deep space communication. (iii) By harnessing our diverse industrial and research strengths across astronomy, mining, manufacturing, medicine, agriculture and robotics for Earth-based industry, we can support space exploration and deep space gateway habitats to safely conduct robotic and human missions. The image above is a portion of the front cover of the roadmap. The full document can be downloaded from the CSIRO website.

As Monday October 1st is a public holiday in NSW, the next ADAP will appear on Tuesday Oct 2nd
