The Department of Industry, Science, Innovation, and Resources in conjunction with the Australian Space Agency has awarded Saber Astronautics a $6 Million grant for the development of Australia’s Mission Control Centre. This project received grant funding from the Australian Government’s Space Infrastructure Fund.
Branded as the “Responsive Space Operations Centre” (or RSOC for short), Saber will bring next generation space mission control technologies to make it easier to fly new spacecraft. Capabilities include concurrent design, pre-flight testing, launch support, as well as live operations during flight. The RSOC will also be the first professional control centre in the world to use machine learning in spacecraft day-to-day operations along with 3D gaming technologies.
