STEM Careers | Launch your future, with mini satellites in orbit
Natalie Stevens is putting Australia's defence into orbit.
One of the country's up-and-coming Defence women scientists, Natalie is developing ground capacity and planning early mission operations for cube satellites. These small, shoebox size units are cheaper than conventional satellites and will help support Australia's world-leading over-horizon radar network.
