2030 Space & Spatial Roadmap

Accelerating the growth of Australia’s space and spatial industries to benefit our nation, our professionals and our communities.

As Australia moves to strengthen its digital economy, economic success, societal well-being, and national security pivots around our ability to collect, disseminate and exploit complex data in a timely and effective manner. Space and spatial capabilities are central to achieving this, providing essential data and services to support areas of national importance such as land and water security, emergency management, and increasingly, autonomous systems and smart cities management. A national coalition of leading organisations have come together to explore the industry opportunities for Australia at the intersection of ‘space’ and ‘spatial’ by coordinating the creating of the Space + Spatial Industry Growth Roadmap 2030.

The Roadmap highlights the strategic importance of a strong Australian space and spatial capability, identifies the critical characteristics of such a capability, and outlines the steps required to realise an integrated space and spatial ecosystem that will be a key national asset.
