In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Dr Jason Held of Saber Astronautics joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss the recent opportunities that have presented themselves, while also looking at the current state of the Australian space landscape, which is per capita the fastest growing new space market in the world, and what the future is likely to hold for space industry within Australia.
He will share why he thinks that limiting manufacturing hubs to specific states could be detrimental to the growth of the sector, unpack what a space agency is in its simplest form and discuss how a start-up space agency gives Australia incredible freedom in how it develops.
