We are working closely with many regulators including ACMA. There aren’t any exemptions in play but there are some very interesting frequencies to use.

I heard yesterday that the Arnhem Space Centre, located in the Northern Territory, has won a contract with NASA to launch research rockets starting from 2020.

Great news Blake!

Great news Blake!

If I recall correctly (7 News), the article stated 20 sounding rocket launches form 50 ~ 150 km in altitude.

Congratulations to Blake, Scoop, and Black Sky! This is incredibly exciting news! As most are aware Woomera is now Defense only and as a result there is currently no commercial/civilian accessible launch capability in Australia. Kudos to EVERYONE who helped make this happen!

Good morning all. I think it's it's morning there. Not sure if anyone is still watching this thread but thought I'd sign up and find out about the new launch facilities. I work at Wallops and will be heading out there for two trips I believe. A build up trip and then back to help light up the night. Just thought it be cool to reach out to the local community and learn want to expect. I'll share what I can. Our group doesn't do anything classified but I'm not sure what all I can share. We leave the classified stuff to the bombs and bullets guys. I look forward to learning some info about the area before I get there and sharing what I can.

Welcome to the forum Baron. I am sure you will enjoy your time down here. We look forward to seeing what happens up in the NT.

FYI, when visiting, there are some great things to see around the NT. Darwin is a nice little city. Some interesting history there. If you get down to Katherine Gorge it is a beautiful place, as is Kakadu. If you do get to Kakadu you absolutely must do the Gunlom Falls Walk. Well worth the effort to get to the top. Take your bathing suit. This is a real hidden gem.

I guess there will be quite a lot to see around Arnhem Land as well.

Hi Baron,

Been meaning to chime in and say welcome to the forum! Here's hoping your plans are progressing regarding your visits to the NT. As I'm sure you can imagine we're incredibly excited that y'all are making your way down. Speaking of which, it appears some of your compatriots have recently visited as well. Granted they're outta JPL, not Wallops, but anytime someone from NASA is out here in an official capacity I reckon that's a good thing!

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-08-01/nasa-scientists-arnhem-land-rocket-site-2020-launch/11370902

On a different note if you're planning on taking a bit of a trip around the rest of the country when you're down and make your way to Perth let us know! It'd be great to show you around if you're keen. On the flip side I wanted to pop in and have a look at Wallops Visitor Center when I was over there in December (my folks live in Corolla, NC) but sadly the shutdown made that a non starter. Next time!
