Maxar Technologies signed a joint statement of strategic intent and cooperation with the Australian Space Agency.

Under the statement, Maxar and Australian Space Agency will investigate collaboration in areas of mutual strategic interest related to Earth intelligence and space infrastructure capabilities, and space-related Australian education and training initiatives. These projects may include development of next-generation space robotics, ground stations focused on optimized servicing of large satellite constellations, optical and communications satellites, space-based maritime surveillance, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technologies that extract insights from Earth observation data at scale.

“Maxar is honored to support the Australian Space Agency as it seeks to expand the nation’s role in the international civil space community, and we look forward to contributing technology and expertise from our 65-year heritage in space to projects and programs that enable them to achieve this goal,” said Dan Jablonsky, Maxar CEO.
