 In Australia, Italy, Space, SA

USE THIS ONEItalian com­pa­ny Leonardo is join­ing the South Australian space ecosys­tem by estab­lish­ing a foothold for its space ser­vice busi­ness through its sub­sidiary e-GEOS in part­ner­ship with SmartSat CRC. e‑GEOS is a joint ven­ture between Telespazio, Leonardo’s sub­sidiary, and the Italian Space Agency.

South Australia Premier Steven Marshall recent­ly wel­comed Leonardo at Lot Fourteen, saying “South Australia is the defence and space cap­i­tal of the coun­try and it’s fan­tas­tic to see anoth­er incred­i­ble inter­na­tion­al com­pa­ny choos­ing South Australia to do busi­ness. The strong inter­est being shown by major nation­al and inter­na­tion­al play­ers is a coup for South Australia and is fur­ther evi­dence that Lot Fourteen is a magnet for busi­ness and jobs. The addi­tion of Leonardo to Lot Fourteen cements my gov­ern­ments strong com­mit­ment to create a once in a gen­er­a­tion hub that will gen­er­ate thou­sands of jobs for South Australians now and into the future.”

As a dom­i­nant world­wide sup­pli­er in the space sector, Leonardo aims to col­lab­o­rate with the Australian space indus­try to stim­u­late local growth and com­pet­i­tive­ness in global mar­kets. “Lot Fourteen is the beat­ing heart of Australia’s space activ­i­ty. It is where the future of Australia’s space capa­bil­i­ty is being cre­at­ed. Leonardo and e‑GEOS have so much space exper­tise to bring, tech­nol­o­gy to trans­fer and expe­ri­ence to share. We want to see the Australian space indus­try grow. How could we not be part of this thrilling ven­ture?” said Michael Lenton, exec­u­tive chair­man of Leonardo Australia.

In 2019, Leonardo Australia through e‑GEOS, became a sup­port­ing part­ner of Adelaide-based space Cooperative Research Centre SmartSat CRC. Leonardo Australia’s part­ner­ship with SmartSat is a key driver in the company’s strat­e­gy to grow its pres­ence in the space indus­try within the Oceania region and to devel­op joint research and com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion oppor­tu­ni­ties. As promi­nent provider of the European Copernicus pro­gram, e‑GEOS sup­ports rapid secu­ri­ty and dis­as­ter response oper­a­tions all over the world, includ­ing pro­vid­ing Australian fire author­i­ties rapid map­ping during recent bush­fires.
