SBAS Testbed Project Manager

This new role is a fixed two year appointment with preferred location in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or Canberra.

The Australian Government, through Geoscience Australia will run a two year Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) testbed in Australia and New Zealand during 2017-2018. SBAS utilises space-based and ground-based infrastructure to improve the accuracy, integrity and availability of basic Global Navigation Satellite System signals, such as those provided by the Global Positioning System. The project will test the effectiveness of the technology and will deliver economic benefits analyses across nine industry sectors (agriculture, aviation, construction, maritime, mining, rail, road, spatial, and utilities) to inform future investment decisions. The CRC for Spatial Information will play a facilitation role in the project through this position.

Working closely with the SBAS testbed team, this role will work at the industry-academic-government interface, developing and facilitating demonstrator projects in the areas of interest. This will include soliciting and managing the suite of application projects built on the testbed. As the testbed commences, the testbed project manager will manage and monitor project progress. Success will be measured by industry participation in the testbed and the production of a business case that demonstrates the need for a SBAS capability against existing technologies and approaches.

There are opportunities for graduates with spatial Information education across Australia and around the globe in many disciplines. 

Jobs in the spatial industry are varied with graduates working throughout business and government in a broad range of spatial information management and system development positions.

You may be involved in the traditional areas of managing land information systems, producing maps and digital databases, surveying boundaries and engineering projects, or managing, developing, and preserving land. You may be applying many techniques, including photogrammetry, remote sensing, and global positioning system (GPS). You could be managing information about the environment, transportation and other utility systems.
