GILMOUR SPACE PARTNERS WITH GRIFFITH UNIVERSITY FOR LEO SATELLITE DEVELOPMENT

Griffith University has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Gold Coast company Gilmour Space Technologies that will see low-Earth orbit (LEO) prototype satellites developed locally and deployed for launch in 2023. The five-year agreement will include a range of projects aimed at increasing Australia’s LEO satellite capability by undertaking research and development for aerospace applications towards the development of small satellite prototypes. The consortium, which includes Etamax Engineering and Northrop Grumman, will manufacture composite tanks up to two metres in diameter and trial them in rocket flights, in a bid to reduce weight, increase reliability and achieve cost savings.  (ICE SYDNEY)
