The Australian Space Agency’s Earth Observation from Space Roadmap outlined a 10-year plan to support growth of the Earth Observation (EO) sector in Australia. This plan was published before May 2022 under the previous Australian Government. 


The Roadmap described a pathway to:

  • secure access to critical EO data
  • see complementary Australian EO capabilities making valued contributions to the global observing system  
  • enable international partnerships, and collaboration with industry.

The following 5 focus segments prioritised in the Roadmap were considered the areas of greatest opportunity for the Australian space sector:

  1. Australian EO missions and payloads
  2. Data quality assurance and integrity monitoring
  3. Enhanced data management
  4. International EO partnerships and leadership
  5. Access to international data and missions.
