Members of Australia’s space sector and as well as all those who use Earth observation data, are invited to take part in a workshop on 1 December 2021.

The Australia-UK Cal-Val Spacebridge project seeks to capitalise on the Earth observation data calibration and validation expertise in Australia and the UK.

Both countries’ communities are recognised as world leaders in different aspects of this sector, and the project seeks to identify synergies, complementarities, and opportunities for the development of collaborative projects that will advance their individual national space programmes and develop new markets for these services.

The demographic of the EO satellite data market is changing with the rapidly increasing number of commercial smallsats. The project team seeks to explore how existing public infrastructure and expertise in Australia and the UK can be applied to best effect so that these new data sources have maximum utility and value.

The project also seeks to explore how a bilateral cooperation might explore tools for assuring data integrity, as EO data is increasingly relied upon as the basis for information which may be subject to legal scrutiny and challenge.

The aim of the workshop is to establish a vision for a vibrant Australian cal-val market, offering products and services to space data providers and users around the world.

The workshop aims to bring together the key public agencies, universities, domestic small-sat aspirants, and companies that might see themselves bringing relevant expertise to the table or see opportunities for themselves in the future market vision.

The event is to be held in person at CSIRO’s Black Mountain site and online on 1 December 2021.
