Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology will open a new Space Weather Hub in 2022 at Adelaide’s Lot Fourteen high-tech precinct.

The Hub will see the Bureau’s space weather scientists, researchers and customer engagement specialists located alongside the Australian Space Agency, Microsoft Azure Space and other space, defence and commercial customers.

The Bureau will add four new positions to its Space Weather Service, bringing a total of 18 positions to the new hub.

The Hub is being backed by the Australian and South Australian governments.

According to South Australia Premier, Steven Marshall, the state is home to more than 90 space-related organisations employing 1,400 people, making it “the undisputed national centre of Australia’s space industry”.

The Hub will house a dedicated Space Weather Forecasting Centre, a customer engagement team and Space Weather Research team.
