Department of Industry, Science, Energy & Resources (DISER): Modern Manufacturing Initiative – Space priority

The Space National Manufacturing Priority road map sets out a vision to support a globally recognised Australian space sector with the capability, capacity and expertise to locally design, develop, manufacture and deploy specialised products, equipment, systems and services for exporting to international markets and to support national and international space missions.

As an emerging sector in Australia, the advantages including capabilities in advanced communication technologies and services, earth observation, and robotics and automation, provide significant opportunity for growth. The road map identifies the key areas of opportunity and actions for government and industry to collaborate to increase capability, drive collaboration, and facilitate domestic and global supply chains.

Manufacturing Integration Stream

The Manufacturing Integration Stream will support projects that integrate Australian businesses into domestic and international value chains, propelling their goods and services into new markets and fostering Australia’s reputation as a modern manufacturing leader. It will encourage and facilitate linkages between local businesses and domestic and international firms, increasing scale, supply capacity, and the ability to innovate. It will also facilitate the adoption of product standards and greater sharing and transfer of knowledge.
