The Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) has established a program to broaden its extant skill base in space-related systems. DSTO already has a strong skill base in the exploitation of space-derived information. However, the cadre of employees with significant experience in the design and construction aspects of space vehicles, space sensors and space vehicle operations is limited. This talk will describe DSTO’s current efforts to develop new space-related R&D projects that integrate Australian civilian investments (such as the Australian Space Research Program) with international Defence collaborations. The aim is to leverage the knowledge and programs of DSTO’s more experienced overseas partners to provide a concrete path to space for Australian-developed technologies and, through those efforts, to grow the cadre of personnel with “hands-on” space mission experience.
