The heart of space

The Australian Space Agency is the heart of space in Australia, working to advance the country's position in the global space economy. 

We have cooperative partnerships with international space agencies and Australian states and territories that benefit the national space sector. We also broker deals and deliver initiatives to drive investment and global opportunities for Australia in space.

"The Australian Space Agency continues to take its role as the front door for the world to engage with Australia in space very seriously – forging deals and generating opportunities through our convening power and space expertise."

~ Enrico Palermo, Head of the Australian Space Agency
