Event | Emerging Disruptive Technology Assessment Symposium | Space Technologies
On 5 and 6 March, DST hosted an Emerging and Disruptive Technology Assessment Symposium (EDTAS) on Space Technologies in Perth.
The EDTAS series helps future-proof Australian Defence, utilising the Next Generation Technologies Fund to consider an expansive science and technology topic that will likely have a major impact for the Defence or national security domains in the 20+ year timeframe.
Held in partnership between DST, the University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Edith Cowen University, Murdoch University and Noetic Group, the EDTAS on space technologies brought together internationally recognised academic, industry and Defence leaders in a multidisciplinary workshop environment over two days to explore and shape the long-term vision for space technologies. The event considered a range of topics such as space technologies in 2040, application in 2040 scenarios, capability concepts, and drivers, barriers and implications for adoption.
