The Space National Manufacturing Priority road map

The Space National Manufacturing Priority road map was released in conjunction with the opening of the Modern Manufacturing Initiative funding. Businesses with projects in the space sector are the first to be able to apply for grants to help them commercialise ideas or processes, or integrate into global supply chains.
The road map sets a plan for industry and government to work together towards a common vision to back space manufacturing. This complements the Australian Civil Space Strategy and the Australian Space Agency’s broader work.
