Saber Astronautics aims to encourage excellence and community involvement, enhance innovation, together with the promotion of Australia’s Space Sector and the empowerment of the space ecosystem.
Saber currently owns and operates the Responsive Space Operations Centre (RSOC) based in Adelaide and Colorado. The Adelaide RSOC received $6M funding from the Australian Space Agency’s Space Infrastructure Fund last year. Supporting astronauts is a long-term goal of Saber’s RSOC program accelerated by a recent agreement with Axiom to create an Australian presence on the International Space Station (ISS) and future Axiom Station.
