Be part of the national conversation

This is about the intersection of two industries – so there’s a lot to think about, a lot to talk about.

But we’ve made it easy for you to have your say in some quick and simple ways. Or as comprehensively as you like.

There’s no need to read it all or to comment on it all – just the parts that are relevant to you and your work.

Get involved. Have your say.

This is a once in a generation opportunity to contribute in a specific way to the future development of Australia by bringing your expertise and experience to a national consultation that can have a lasting impact.

It’s about seeing the opportunities for our country in new ways by first considering what these emerging scenarios might mean – for our work and our professional disciplines, for our businesses and industries – so that together we can carve out new spheres of opportunity and economic growth.

For something with so much potential, we’ve been working to make it quick and easy for you to have your say while learning how these new pathways may impact you and your work.

Host a discussion. Upload your group’s feedback.

Everyone wants to share their experience and have a say. But we know surveys are tedious and no one needs yet more sticky notes!

So you can grab a coffee and get some colleagues together to work through the issues at your own pace – over a morning tea break or a quiet afternoon.

The range of ways that you can participate simply and quickly include:

Space+Spatial Industry Growth Roadmap 2030

In this information age economic success, societal well-being and national security pivots around our ability to collect, disseminate, understand and exploit complex sets of data in a timely and effective manner.

Space and spatial capabilities are central to achieving this and can provide essential data and services to support areas of national importance such as land and water security, emergency management, and autonomous systems and smart cities management. 

The ‘SPACE+SPATIAL’ Roadmap is being developed to:


the strategic importance of a strong Australian space and spatial capability


the critical characteristics of such a capability


the steps required to realise an integrated space and spatial eco-system that will be a key national asset


industry growth opportunities and propose actions to grow the space and spatial sectors


This national industry road mapping is not just about developing our space and spatial capabilities and technologies. It is also exploring the current and potential value for Australia arising from the intersection of the two.


Our frame of reference is orbital space. For more context, visit the Space Explained page,

A coordinated, strategic approach to integration of Australia’s space and spatial sectors would have many benefits.


The spatial disciplines impact all our lives everywhere, every day. For more context, visit the Spatial Explained page.  

The spatial industry can play a significant role in contributing to the Government’s three key objectives for the space industry by 2030:








During 2020-21 a consultation paper has been drafted that – following dialogue and feedback from industry, SMEs, research and public sectors – will become a national roadmap for ‘space & spatial’ industry growth through to 2030.


Our comprehensive paper is central to the national consultations for the ‘Space & Spatial Industry Roadmap 2030’.
