The Australian Space Industry is at the cross roads. After a highly successful Australian Space Research Program and the endorsement by the Australian Government of a national Satellite Utilisation Policy, the industry is once again in uncertainty about the future direction of space activity in Australia. This forum will hear from a cross section of Australia's present and future space industry leaders who will share their views on the direction in we should be heading and what we as an industry should be doing to avoid the traditional one step forward, two steps back pattern of space industry activity in this country.
