SmartSat CRC, the UK Science and Innovation Network and Satellite Applications Catapult are seeking proposals for research projects that align to the mutual benefits of the UK and Australia and create collaboration through the Space Bridge.

For this phase, there are four priority areas for research proposals:

  • Earth Observation and Climate Resilience;
  • Agriculture and Land Management from Space;
  • Enabling Connectivity and Innovative Space Communications; and
  • Quantum Technologies for Space.

It is expected that four projects will be funded in this round. These projects are to be groundwork research to be completed by 30 June 2022, with a cash request not to exceed AUD$100,000 (~GBP50,000). The outcome will be final project deliverables and a report which identifies potential follow-on tasks (noting that follow-on funding will be pursued separately and is not guaranteed).

Responses due by 5pm (AEST) on Monday 30 August 2021.
