Are you an incubator, accelerator or facilitator operating in the space industry? We are seeking expressions of interest (EOI) from organisations relevant to the space sector with deep-tech experience to activate and administer one or both of the following Space Industry Development Strategy initiatives:
- the National Space Industry Hub
- a pilot space qualification mission.
New manufacturing, design and software technologies have reduced barriers to entry into the space sector. They have ushered in a new era of low-cost satellites and payloads, known as Space 2.0, in which small companies and start-ups can play a larger role.
The National Space Industry Hub will attract space sector start-ups, SMEs and researchers to a centralised location, creating a hub that is focused on collaboration and commercialisation.
The second initiative, a space qualification mission, addresses one of the biggest and most costly hurdles to participation in the space sector proving technology works in space. The program will assist NSW space businesses and researchers to overcome this barrier and achieve the technology readiness level required to participate in global supply chains.
Through these initiatives of the NSW Space Industry Development Strategy, the NSW Government is committed to ensuring the space sector is well positioned to benefit from the continued, rapid-growth and demand for space-enabled technologies.
