Australia - Strengthening Companies in the Space Sector
The transformative potential of the space sector is extraordinary as no other industry so inspires nations, young minds, and collaboration.
Australia brings many advantages to the sector in our cross-sector strengths applying technology to the challenges of remote, difficult frontiers.
Including the success and expertise of Western Australia in autonomous mining operations, remote asset management over distance and robotics applications in the offshore energy sector.
Openness to collaboration is another strength as these types of challenges are inherently collective with a shared purpose.
That was my resounding takeaway from In-The-Zone speakers;
