Geoscience Australia and EOS have renewed an agreement to conduct satellite laser ranging operations, extending a 20-year relationship between the organisations.

The multimillion-dollar contract for up to five years is expected to drive growth in EOS’ Australia-based workforce and support the ASX-listed firm’s own investments in developing space domain awareness capabilities.

“Accurate laser ranging data produced by EOS is used by various international space agencies, like NASA, to accurately measure a satellite’s position in orbit, tectonic plate movements and for verifying GPS data,” CEO of EOS Space Systems Craig Smith said. 

“Our partnership with Geoscience Australia shows that when government and industry can work together, Australia can make a real contribution to the global space community and actively grow high technology space jobs for Australians.”
