Positioning Australia wants to help Australia prosper by fostering a world-leading positioning capability accessible to all Australians. By leading and coordinating a thriving competitive Australian positioning capability, we unlock the potential for technological improvements in industries to deliver accelerated economic growth, create entrepreneurial opportunities, increase environmental and societal benefits, and improve community safety. We know that government, industry, start-ups, innovators and academia are all vital to enable the development of precise positioning and the building of new applications that Australians can use.

The future we’re working towards is one where precise positioning is adopted by Australian industry. Here is what it might look like:

Geoscience Australia works with industry partners

Geoscience Australia, work extensively with government, academia and industry partners across a wide range of sectors in Australia and New Zealand. Examples include testing the potential application of the Southern Positioning Augmentation Network known as SouthPAN through the SBAS test-bed demonstrator project, available on the Industry case studies page.

We are currently seeking SouthPAN ground station site hosts, more information available on the Expressions of interest (EOI) for SouthPAN ground station site page.
