Last month EM Solutions, part EOS Communication Systems, also signed a Statement of Strategic Intent and Cooperation with the Australian Space Agency. EM Solutions will leverage their experience in delivering innovative radio frequency and SATCOM systems into the emerging Australian space industry.

Dr Rowan Gilmore, CEO of EM Solutions spoke about the company’s plan to grow the Australian skill base through R&D, the design, testing and assembly of new space hardware.

“EM Solutions is a proud supporter of the Australian Space Agency as it works to grow the space sector, said Dr Gilmore.

“I am delighted that our work in space communications is recognised by signing this Joint Statement of Strategic Intent and Cooperation with the Australian Space Agency. For more than twenty years, EM Solutions has developed fully integrated systems incorporating its own technology to develop products and subsystems used in the space communications value chain.
