Resources Advisory Board

The Resources Advisory Board was created to support the delivery of the AROSE mission ­– to bring space capability to resources companies, and so solve the critical challenges they face, while also taking Australia’s remote operations expertise to Space. The Board’s work underpins the space-tech transfer across multi-sectors, through the acceleration of knowledge transfer and facilitation of alternate approaches, and so build capability across both the resources and Space sectors.
