Geospatial Council CEO Tony Wheeler welcomed the release of the executive version of the Space and Spatial Industry Growth Roadmap, launched at the Space Discovery Centre in Adelaide on 14 March 2023.
The launch was attended by senior members of industry and government including the Hon Steve Georganas (Labour) and the Hon James Stevens (Liberal), Co-Chairs of the Parliamentary Friends of Space Committee.
The Head of the Australian Space Agency Enrico Palermo accepted the RoadMap on behalf of the Government.
“Importantly the roadmap links both space and spatial industries (the value adding aspect of the utilisation of space assets) and highlights the synergies that accrue from both,” Mr Wheeler said. “The Roadmap sets out a series of actions which would be needed by industry, research and government to maximise the growth of these industries.”
