Event description

Description

Our Western way of life is fundamentally reliant on space services, with space providing critical capabilities to support our national interests. If we are to ensure these services continue, we need: an understanding of the ‘geography’ of space, how do we operate there, and the capabilities we employ to ensure our access (or risk mitigation if access is denied). This presentation captures the essential elements to understand national space power from an Australian perspective.

A great SPACE 101 presentation which will provide you with an appreciation of Australian space power and how it can be used for Australia’s security.
