“CSIRO’s technology breakthrough enabled the world to connect without wires using fast WiFi, and now our technology will help connect satellites using our breakthrough phased array technology,” he said.
CSIRO Chief Executive Larry Marshall said the launch of Quasar would put more Australians in jobs in the booming space industry. Quasar, which is backed by funding from the CSIRO and the private sector, will offer its technology as a service, allowing partners to access satellite data from anywhere in the world.
