This Week’s Highlight: Defence Space Domain Awareness Project

Early last year, Defence held an event called SpaceFest for the second time, as an opportunity to bring together Australian companies, start ups, academics and international partners to evaluate the current and future state of space related sensor systems to inform future capability acquisition projects. The event provided an opportunity for participants to take part in capability demonstration and equipment trials conducted by Defence Science and Technology (DST) on behalf of the Royal Australian Air Force.

Due to the success of last years event, the Wide Area Space Surveillance Systems Program Office – Space Domain Awareness (SDA) Project is inviting industry and academia to respond to a Request for Information in relation to the next SpaceFest event.

WASS SPO is planning to conduct an event later in 2020, and seeks expressions of interest from Industry to participate in this and future events and to inform the planning and format for these events. Australian Industry vendors will subsequently be invited to participate in order to demonstrate their capability. Please note that responding to an RFI is not mandatory and does not preclude your participation in any future related procurement activity. However, an RFI does allow you to demonstrate your subject matter expertise and potentially influence the final procurement outcome. The closing date for this RFI is 20th July 2020.
