Nova Systems has established a Space Precinct on a 21-hectare site just outside of Peterborough, South Australia to track low earth orbit satellites. As Australia continues to rapidly expand its presence in the $500 billion-a-year global space sector, our Space Precinct is currently providing ground station support for several international space and technology companies, with the capacity to grow further.
What We Do
The Space Precinct provides vital connectivity support for the ever-increasing launch of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) small satellite missions. The data collected from small satellite missions can be downloaded to a client’s own terminal at the site, using their network of owned and operated antennas.
We support Australian Space Agency activity and cater for the data download needs of the ever-increasing number of satellites and constellations. This in-country capability will become a critical element of Australia’s space industry ecosystem and has been designed for the international space market.
Our satellite ground segment facility is tailored to meet the needs of current and future Low Earth Orbit, Medium Earth Orbit, and Geostationary Orbit small satellite missions.
