In the 2019-20 Federal Budget, the Australian Government announced the $19.5 million Space Infrastructure Fund (SIF). This investment into infrastructure will help to grow the Australian space sector.

The SIF targets 7 infrastructure projects for common-user platforms that industry cannot provide alone.

Two of these projects are now open for grant applications:

  • Mission Control Centre in South Australia
  • Robotics, Automation and AI Command and Control Centre in Western Australia

The Mission Control Centre grant opportunity will award a single grant of $6 million to establish the Mission Control Centre at Lot Fourteen in Adelaide. This centre will allow start-ups, small to medium enterprises, and researchers to control satellite missions and access space-enabled data.

Find out how to apply for this grant opportunity.

The Robotics, Automation and AI Command and Control Centre grant opportunity will award a single grant of $4.5 million to establish the Robotics, Automation and AI Command and Control Centre in Western Australia. This centre will allow start-ups, small to medium enterprises, and researchers to control autonomous operations in space.

Applications close 5pm AEDT Tuesday 18 February 2020.
