A new National Facility for Earth observation research and applications

The CSIRO is operating Australia’s 10% capacity share in the NovaSAR-1 satellite mission as a National Facility for research. This is a natural extension of our long-standing history of running other National Facilities, such as the Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF). Access to NovaSAR-1 data is free to researchers from institutions across the globe (note that to comply with Export and Sanctions regulations we are unable to distribute NovaSAR-1 data to all countries). Tasking of new images is available to projects with links to Australian research and industry, with satellite imaging time allocated on a merit basis.

The NovaSAR-1 National Facility enables new remote sensing research, supports training on satellite tasking and operations and enhances the development of Australia’s Earth observation and analytics expertise.
