Sustaining a safe and reliable commercial space launch capability from Australia presents some unique challenges. This is an overview for some of the technical challenges ahead and Equatorial Launch Australia’s (ELA’s) approach to navigating them for international competitive advantage.ELA is establishing Australia’s first commercial spaceport and larger space centre, Arnhem Space Centre (ASC), at 12 degrees south of the Equator in East Arnhem Land, Northern Territory. ASC needs to support a diverse range of future technologies with space launch vehicles (SLVs), spacecraft, telecommunication relays and satellite teleports. ELA is taking a stepwise approach toward building and sustaining the necessary capabilities for ASC.
