Cooperative Research Centre for Satellite Systems (CRCSS)

What is CRCSS

The Cooperative Research Centre for Satellite Systems (CRCSS) was formed by the Australian Government in 1998 to conduct a seven year R&Dprogram investigating the development and applications of small satellite systems.
During the past decade, countries with relatively modest space budgets have embraced small satellite technologies as affordable access to space. Australia is ideally placed to participate, service, and benefit through being a regional player in this niche field of space enterprise.
The Centre is supported by six universities, four private companies, and two Government research organisations and by the Government of Australia. The first satellite project to be conducted by the Centre is FedSat. The mission consist of a 60kg microsatellite and S-band tracking facilities in Adelaide SA. The Centre is the only one of its kind in Australia devoted to space technology and represents Australia's ambition to engage meaningfully as a contributor to, and beneficiary from, global space activities.
