This is an historic investment that will strengthen our sovereign capability as well as grow the sector and create hundreds of new jobs.
The 2022-23 Budget includes $1.16 billion [USD $871.6 million] to 2038-39 and $38.5 million [USD $28.9 million] per annum ongoing for the first phase of a National Space Mission for Earth Observation, which will see Australia design, build, and operate four new satellites.
