Airservices signs MOU on space-based comms test

Airservices Australia and Skykraft have launched a collaboration to share information and technical expertise as part of the development of Skykraft’s commercial space-based air traffic management service.

Skykraft is planning to conduct a proof-of-concept test to explore and demonstrate the feasibility of space-based surveillance and communication technologies and their application in the aviation ecosystem.

Airservices’ Chief Customer Experience and Strategy Officer, Peter Curran, and the Chairman of Skykraft, AVM (Retd) Mark Skidmore, signed a memorandum of understanding in December for the two parties to work together on the planning and execution of a pathfinder satellite mission.

Skykraft is planning to conduct a launch of a low-Earth orbit satellite in mid-2021 as part of the test.
