Feedback is being sought from potential users and operators of the Common User Facility within Australia’s first dedicated space manufacturing hub, Australian Space Park, to ensure it meets the future needs of the Australian space industry.
The Australian Space Park – to be built at a site at Adelaide airport – will accelerate Australia’s sovereign space manufacturing capability and capacity by initially co-locating four space manufacturing companies in a purpose-built facility.
Their focus is on collaboration and production of small satellites and their payloads, rockets, electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles (eVTOL), and supporting componentry and technical systems.
A Common User Facility will also be established to provide Australian space manufacturers with access to facilities that are capable of small satellite and component manufacturing, with potential to scale-up.
The South Australian Government will invest $20 million in the park, along with companies Fleet Space Technologies, Q-CTRL, ATSpace and Alauda Aeronautics.
A Request for Information (RFI) process is now open for industry to have their say and will close on Thursday, 2 June 2022.
