The 21-hectare site outside Peterborough in South Australia supports several international space and technology companies, as well as hosting a new prototype passive array radar in partnership with Curtin University.
Nova Systems Executive General Manager of Mission Solutions, Andrew Mannix, said the installation of fibre would enable greater access to highly reliable terrestrial connectivity; allowing data to be provided at a much faster rate.
“The Space Precinct will soon support Australian Space Agency projects and caters for data download needs of the ever-increasing number of satellites and constellations,” Mr Mannix said.
“Nova Systems has also partnered with Curtin University to prototype a passive array radar system, which is a huge step in Space Domain Awareness innovation – allowing us to track thousands of objects in orbit.
“The addition of fibre, coupled with the low risk of interference on the Radio Frequency quiet site, makes the Space Precinct even more attractive to commercial and government clients.”
