Thales and RMIT to collaborate on satellite positioning system
The agreement will see the organisations try to define a PPP service channel and standardise a message format for use in the spatial information and positioning business sector, according to RMIT.
The work is expected to help guide future positioning service development and serve as a platform for creating regionally scalable solutions for Thales to export into the global market, RMIT added.
Thales Australia Director Technical Strategy Michael Clark said, “The work brings together, in Australia, the existing technology base of the Navigation Business Line of Thales Alenia Space with the expertise and experience of RMIT researchers led by Associate Professor Suelynn Choy, in the definition and evaluation of high-accuracy positioning services.”
Choy said the project was an important element of RMIT’s growing involvement in the space sector, ensuring interoperability of high-accuracy satellite-based positioning services.
“A strong focus of RMIT is to work closely with industry and other partners to create value and impact. We are delighted to build on our existing relationship with Thales to build capacity and make a positive contribution to Australia’s growing space industry,” Professor Choy said.
“The initiative underscores our commitment to grow the Australian Space sector in line with our Joint Statement of Strategic Intent with the Australian Space Agency,” Thales Australia Director Space Business Matt Dawson concluded.
