The Australian-UK Space Bridge

The ‘Space Bridge’, architected by the Satellite Applications Catapult and inspired by the highly successful ‘FinTech Bridge’ already in existence between the UK and Australia, will be a mechanism to unlock greater collaboration between governments, regulators, and industry.

On Tuesday 24th September 2019 a political declaration and statement of intent was made between the UK Space Agency and Australian Space Agency to establish a Space Bridge between the two nations. The Space Bridge will open-up new opportunities for UK space businesses; providing a platform to enable closer and stronger collaboration on space technologies and associated applications between the Australian and UK governments, regulators, financers and private sector. 

The business, commercial / collaborative and academic level of the bridge will provide direct benefit to UK space and space applications organisations through funding and mechanisms to encourage and drive expanded global export opportunities, access to and ability to develop skills and capability, collaborative technology development opportunities and support greater commercial exploitation opportunities and increased export potential.

Following a successful Government campaign, the UK Space Agency and the Australian Space Agency, together with the UK Department for International Trade, Austrade, Satellite Applications Catapult, and the Smartsat CRC, is working with interested stakeholders to develop the Space Bridge Framework further to accelerate economic benefits to both nations Space and Satellite Applications communities. A key pillar of the Space Bridge is building on the significant industrial engagement from the Satellite Applications Catapult and SmartSat CRC to develop the Business / Commercial and Collaborative level of the Bridge.
