Space Industry Leaders Forum

The Space Industry Leaders Forum informs the Australian Space Agency on industry matters. Read about the forum and its members.

The Space Industry Leaders Forum keeps the Australian Space Agency informed on issues relevant to the industry. It is also a coordination point for the civil space sector. 

The forum:

  • supports the Australian Space Agency in the business and technological aspects of the space industry 
  • provides input into national civil space strategy and policy
  • works with the agency to provide one voice for the civil space sector
  • is not a decision making body and does not replace the role of trade associations.
