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!
