fnTS 1: Space – The Final Frontier

The AICC(WA) brings you a rare networking event that will showcase Israel’s innovations in the global space sector and will explore synergies that may be developed between Israel and Australia in the space domain.

Mr Uri Oron, Director General of the Israeli Space Agency will present online direct from Israel a mini keynote address and will be joined on a panel with two Israeli colleagues from the sector. The focus of the discussion will be on opportunities that exist for space collaboration in Australia especially in remotes sensing, and STEM education. Mr Oron will also discuss the critical role that governments play in space matters and address workforce issues as well.

Two Australian based panellists will be part of the conversation: James Yuen, Director Space, WA Government’s Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation and Dr Newton Campbell Jr, Director of Space Programs at AROSE and former NASA Senior Computer and Ai Scientist.

In areas as diverse as space-based remote sensing, satellite communications and growing plants in zero or low-gravity environments, Israel has a long-standing and successful space heritage in launch, satellite design, manufacture and operations, as well as the management and processing of data to aid decision-making. Israel has demonstrated technological maturity and has manufactured durable and competitive products and services that contribute to the global space economy. Israel was the eighth country in the world to succeed in launching and positioning satellites in space.

Western Australia hosts numerous facilities that are vital components of Australia’s space capabilities. The State also supports new projects that promise to add to Australia’s space capabilities and the global space ecosystem in
the decades ahead. Public and private investments are driving growth in remote operations, robotics, agriculture, emergency services and surveillance. A similar situation applies in Israel where the nation’s investments in space contribute to defence, manufacturing and trade including in ways that are changing the way we view Earth and go about our daily lives.

Taking account of the relative maturity of the Israeli space sector and the nascent state of the Australian space sector, we are confident that there is much Australia can learn from Israel’s success.
