The SIAA’s White Paper contribution to the current national discussion on the future of the space sector ‘Advancing Australia in Space’ was launched today in a teleconference attended by over 25 SIAA members and media representatives.


The essential theme of the White Paper is that a national space program, implemented by an internationally recognised space agency, is a critical element of any national strategy for the transition of the Australian economy. ‘It is impossible to imagine a prosperous high-tech future for Australia that does not include a government plan for the accelerated development of our space industry.’
