Australian Space Agency

We are transforming and growing a globally respected Australian space sector. Learn about our strategic priorities and initiatives.

What we do

Space technologies and services benefit all Australians.

They underpin a lot of the daily conveniences Australians have come to expect, including things like:

  • weather forecasting
  • emergency management
  • internet access
  • online banking
  • GPS.

Space technology can also help:

  • farmers monitor the health of their crops
  • emergency response workers track bushfires
  • mining vehicles work autonomously.

Learn about how we support these important activities.
