The Australian Remote Operations for Space and Earth (AROSE) consortium has opened its head office in Perth, in a ceremony attended by WA’s Deputy Premier and Minister for Science, Roger Cook.

“Australia’s expertise in remote operations is highly respected and in demand by international space agencies,” said AROSE CEO, Ms Leanne Cunnold.

“AROSE is already being called upon to assist in using this expertise to solve the challenges future missions to the Moon and beyond will face.

“We need to grab hold of this opportunity now and cement Australia’s place as the trusted leader and supplier of remote operations in space and on Earth. If Australia doesn’t seize this moment, others will, and they will be the future disruptors.”

The Minister acknowledged the benefits the remote sensing sector brings.

“With AROSE headquartered in WA, imagine the possibilities for the growth of our industries and for our young people who aspire to future careers in STEM,” Minister Cook said.

“This is an exciting time for WA. Science sits at the forefront of the WA government’s agenda for jobs, state development and diversification of our economy.

“We are making strategic investments, like supporting the establishment of AROSE, to harness the energy and talent we have in WA for a strong, resilient future.”

The founding of AROSE’s head office has been supported by the WA government, through the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation.
