Australian Space Agency Signs Agreements with Counterparts in Canada, UK

The Australian Space Agency has formally entered into Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with counterpart agencies in Canada and the United Kingdom, as part of the country’s plan to launch a “vibrant new space industry,” according to a press release from the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science. These MoUs – including one with the Canadian Space Agency – will help all three nations develop their respective space programs and take advantage of the rapidly-expanding global space industry, the release said. Canada’s co-operation in earth observation with Geoscience Australia was one of the projects identified for further development. Australia’s Coalition Government is investing A$41 million over four years to establish and operate Australia’s first-ever national space agency. It is also investing more than A$260 million to develop world-leading core satellite infrastructure and technologies, including better GPS for Australian business and regional Australians and improved access to satellite imagery.
