Auspace Limited is an Australian engineering company serving the needs of the science, commercial and defence communities in space engineering and associated technologies and systems. As a lead contractor in most of the recent major Australian space engineering projects, Auspace has developed a unique range of capabilities applicable not only to space projects but to other related fields as well.
Auspace has flight experience in space-system design and implementation, ranging from small satellites to instruments on larger satellites.
Satellite Communications is an area where Auspace has extensive capabilities. From strategic reviews of requirements to implementation options and economic benefits studies, through to supply and implementation of ground stations, VSAT networks for both civilian and military customers. Auspace has an advanced technology group that implements specialist modem technologies for a number of major clients.
Auspace is a wholly owned subsidiary of EADS Astrium, Europe?s leading satellite manufacturer serving the needs of the global market with extensive international experience as prime contractor in both space and ground segments for satellite communications, earth observation and science programs. EADS Astrium is also a major supplier of space transportation and manned space systems. Auspace is supported by the technology and strength of EADS Astrium.
As a core participant in the Cooperative Research Centre for Satellite Systems (CRCSS), Auspace worked collaboratively to launch the micro-satellite, FedSat-1, in 2002.
Auspace operates under an AS/NZS ISO 9001-2000 accredited Business System.
Auspace Limited is compliant with the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000.
