Optus and Space Machines Company seek ways to provide in-space logistics and orbital services

Telecommunications company Optus has partnered with Australian-based space transportation and logistics provider Space Machines Company to explore ways to manufacture and provide on-orbit services of spacecraft from within Australia.

Optus will leverage Space Machines Company’s (SMC) spacecraft manufacturing, transportation, and servicing proficiencies to deliver civil and defence applications.

“Together, Optus and Space Machines Company will provide the Australian public and private sector with an option to not only operate satellites from Australia, but now build them within our own borders,” said Optus managing director wholesale, satellite, and strategy Ben White.

“We are delighted to work alongside industry pioneers and innovators Space Machines Company to lead the charge in making space more accessible than ever before to Australians. Space is the next frontier, and together we are exploring ways to harness its potential.”

“In-space logistics and orbital services are the new drivers in space innovation. We want to see Australia not only have this sovereign capability, but to be a leader in the technology and services being deployed,” said Space Machines Company CEO and co-founder Rajat Kulshrestha.
