UK and Australia agree closer space partnership

The UK and Australia have strengthened their collaboration in space, including in satellite navigation, as the newly created Australian Space Agency reaches out to the world.

The UK Space Agency and its Australian counterpart the ASA signed a memorandum of understanding at the International Astronautical Congress, which is taking place this week in Bremen, Germany.

The document provides a framework for collaborative activities as well as the exchange of information, technology and personnel between the two countries. Both countries collaborate frequently on space science, but the creation of the Australian agency in July and the UK’s exit from the European Union in March 2019 are bringing the two partners even closer.
