In this episode of the Defence Connect Spotlight podcast, Noel Borgas, campaign lead at Lockheed Martin Space, and Dr Matt Tetlow, CEO and founder of Inovor Technologies, join host Liam Garman to discuss the future of the Australian space industry and how local SMEs haven risen to the challenge of providing innovative space solutions to the ADF.
The trio begins the podcast unpacking how the space domain is an essential vector for future warfighting scenarios, and the steps that Australia must take to build a sovereign space capability that is able to overcome future threat environments.
The podcast discusses how Lockheed Martin Australia has supported the development of Australia’s space industry, including through local industry engagement with partners such as Inovor Technologies.
The trio wraps up by discussing how a layered approach is optimal for military constellations, providing Australia with an adaptable and resilient space strategy to overcome current and future threats.
