Space and sustainability

Space technology plays an important role in making Earth a more sustainable place

Satellites monitor changing environmental conditions of our oceans, land, and atmosphere.

Agricultural equipment can be remotely controlled with the help of satellites to maximise farm productivity and efficiency.

Satellites sense soil moisture and vegetation and land characteristics to help increase crop yield.

Earth Observation satellites improve response to bushfires, floods and droughts.

Space tech forecasts energy production and identifies the best locations for renewable energy.

Satellites monitor pollution to inform how we protect the air we breathe.

Satellites collect and relay sensor data to track wildlife, which helps manage and protect their habitats.

Satellites help us map and maintain roads, which reduces fuel consumption.
