Australia seen from space

ANU Institute for Space

The Australian National University Institute for Space is an initiative that creates opportunities for and co-invests in research, innovation and collaboration to supercharge Australia’s space capability.

ANU is home to world-class space infrastructure and world-leading space industry researchers from across many ANU Colleges and their Schools. We align our work and investment to the  Australian Space Agency's (ASA) priority themes to drive national action: Positioning, navigation and timing, Earth observation, Communications technologies and services, Situation awareness and debris monitoring, Leapfrog R&D, Robotics and automation, Access to space, as well as three other critical areas: Defence, Home Affairs and Science. 

Get in touch to learn more and meet our space experts. Together we’ll innovate to deliver space-ready missions.
