This Week’s Highlight: Increasing Space Domain Awareness

The last few years have seen Australia gain traction in establishing a space agency and provide opportunities for industry to expand in this sector. Prior to the establishment of an agency, the Department of Defence provided the sector’s input and expertise along with a range of scientific organisations and continues to play a large role in this capability. This week we look at an opportunity for industry and academia issued by Defence to register interest in working on the Space Domain Awareness (SDA) Project, also known as Joint Project 9360 (JP9360). Involvement will be through an upcoming activity – SpaceFest Lite (SACT 22-2).

Space Domain Awareness (SDA) is the ability to detect, track and catalogue objects orbiting earth to understand and predict future events. Joint Project 9360 is seeking to grow SDA, with a fundamental component being the collection of sensor data to update orbit estimates, search for new objects and characterise objects with an ability to characterise threats to Australian and allied space-based capabilities, monitor debris (human-made and natural) and identify space weather events.

Defence has sought to engage industry through a range of activities including previous SpaceFest events, however this event invites industry to participate in the Sprint Advanced Concept Training (SACT) exercise. SACT is a joint civil-commercial-military, international space traffic management exercise consisting of real, sim, and sim over real events and provides an experimentation ground for state of the art in space traffic management, space situational awareness and space domain awareness. It is an opportunity for companies to collaborate on solving problems in the space domain, maturing their capabilities, and test tools and processes in a live operational setting. This represents an invaluable opportunity for industry to test innovative concepts and rehearse in real-world scenarios. For Defence it represents a market research opportunity to understand feasibility of concepts and current industry capability in this field. This allow government to then formulate future stages of the project and subsequent procurement action.

To participate, respondents are required to submit a ‘Desired Learning Objective’ (DLO) for consideration for inclusion in SACT 22-2 (11 – 15 April 2022). JP9360 will compensate successful companies up to a value of $10,000 to participate in SACT with the requirement to provide Defence with a post activity report detailing key outcomes which will be used to provide the Project and Defence with an ongoing snapshot of Australian SDA capabilities.

This EOI closes on 10 March 2022 with timeframe for Delivery March to May 2022.
