ASRI is a non-profit research organization run entirely by volunteer members who are interested in space related activities.
ASRI came about in the early 1990s as the result of a merger between the AUSROC Launch Vehicle Development Group at Monash University in Melbourne and the Australian Space Engineering Research Association (ASERA).
The Australian Space Research Institute (ASRI) is registered under Australian Corporations law as a Company Limited by Guarantee. Consequently, ASRI’s operations are principally governed by a Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association.
ASRI is governed by a Board of Directors with day-to-day operations managed by an Executive.
