“It will be pivotal to the development of new Australian technologies, capable of significantly improving and transforming the nation’s economic performance.
 
“Space technologies will revolutionise the way we communicate, observe, analyse and interact with faster and more accurate information.
 
“The CRC will also increase our national security, ensuring that Australian industry provides the secure systems and data that we need in business and in our private lives.”
