ACSER wins funding for new Spacecraft Lab
We are pleased to announce that ACSER has been awarded an ARC Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities commencing 2021 to the tune of $670k to fund the new Australian Spacecraft Innovation Laboratory.
The laboratory is designed to provide researchers and entrepreneurs with a venue to integrate and test their “cubesats”, satellites the size of a loaf of bread, and small payloads. By centralising the satellite integration function, the standard of Australian space assets can be assured, giving researchers confidence that their spacebased experiments will succeed. Knowledge transfer to space start-ups will be accelerated by easing their access to space.
Partners include Sydney University, Macquarie University and Delta-V Space Alliance. Please contact Prof Andrew Dempster for further information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
