How small satellites – CubeSats - are taking over space.

CubeSats have experienced massive growth in recent years. Thanks to new technologies it is now more economical than ever to launch them and deploy large numbers into the low-earth orbit, creating new opportunities for earth observation and communications. However, this doesn’t come without challenges, particularly when it comes to security and shared resources.

Associate Professor Gottfried Lechner is leading the Advanced Communications, Connectivity and Internet of Things (IoT) program of the SmartSat CRC, one of Australia’s most significant space industry research concentrations headquartered in Adelaide.  

Join Gottfried Lechner as he further explores this exciting area with industry partners and internationally-renowned entrepreneurs Dr Alex Grant, CEO of Myriota, and Dr Matthew Tetlow, CEO of Inovor.
