A/AA & Swinburne Space Industry Virtual Conference Series

A/AA & Swinburne Space Industry Virtual Conference Series

Space Based Navigation and Its Benefits on Earth

Industry Sponsor: Thales Australia 

On October 8 A/AA launched the first of the A/AA & Swinburne Space Industry Virtual Conference Series with its focus on Space Based Navigation and Its Benefits on Earth. 

Like the internet, the space domain underpins many essential services to everyday life and is a critical part of the international infrastructure. The A/AA & Swinburne Space Industry Virtual Conference Series aims to develop the conversation with a wider audience beyond the traditional space and defence sector, and build knowledge across the government/industry enterprise. 

Our Key Note speaker was Professor Alan Duffy | Program Leader, SpaceTech applications at Swinburne University of Technology. 

Alan Duffy is leading Swinburne’s SpaceTech Applications program, which is focusing on the ways that space-borne observations and timing data can support activities on Earth swinburne.edu.au/research-institutes/data-science/research/spacetech-applications. 

Industry Speakers Included: 

/ Karl Rodrigues | Executive Director, National and International Engagement at the Australian Space Agency 

Matt Dawson | Director, Space Business at Thales Australia 

Bridget Hosking | Systems Supervisor at Airservices Australia & Vice President Administrative at Civil Air – The Australian ATC Association

/ Adam Burford | Chairman at Aviation/Aerospace Australia and Acting Regional Director Asia-Pacific at Aireon 

Much of the world’s critical infrastructure – such as communications, air transport, maritime trade, financial and other business services, weather and environmental monitoring and defence systems – depends on the space infrastructure, including satellites, ground stations and data links at national, regional and international levels. 
Swinburne University of Technology is at the forefront of collaboration with Australian companies embarking on the space race. Swinburne is recognised for its capabilities in space-related disciplines including astrophysics, data analytics and visualisation, AI, advanced materials, advanced manufacturing and human factors.
