The 2030 Space + Spatial Industry Growth Roadmap is the product of extensive, industry-wide consultation, setting out nine high-priority objectives that, if undertaken, will help ensure Australia’s interlinked space and spatial industries maximise their growth potential, and deliver critical services to Australia’s governments, commercial and defence sectors, and the wider community.
Published in March 2023 and presented to the Australian Space Agency, the Roadmap not only lays out how Australia should develop its space and spatial capabilities and technologies, but how exploring the current and potential value for Australia arising from the intersection of the two.
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
The spatial industry can play a significant role in contributing to the Government’s three key objectives for the space industry by 2030:
BILLION DOLLARS TO GDP
MILLION DOLLARS TO INVESTMENT PIPELINE
