Each year, ANU InSpace focuses on several flagship missions to supercharge Australia’s space capability.

These missions align with Australian Space Agency priority areas and the federal government priorities in Defence, Home Affairs and Science. They are chosen to drive national action and link the global space industry to the world-class space infrastructure and world-leading space industry researchers at the ANU. 

ANU is dedicated to crossing perceived discipline boundaries to create collaborative space missions that make life better for all Australians.
