The CRCSI strategic vision is to be widely recognised for undertaking high impact, collaborative research that leads to accelerated industry growth, improved social well-being and a more sustainable environment.
WHAT SUCCESS WILL LOOK LIKE
By 2018 the CRCSI will be globally recognised for our high impact research. We will be considered an essential partner for complex spatial information research collaborations both locally and internationally, and acknowledged for our central role in the industry.
We are strongly collaborative in our relationships, strive for excellence in our research, and are transformational in our impact.
OUR STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES
The CRCSI has seven strategic objectives that support the outcomes of our six research and development programs. These objectives are:
NATIONAL PRECISE POSITIONING (RESEARCH PROGRAM 1)
Objective 1: To conduct research that solves the signal processing and economic impediments to the creation of a sparse, continental-scale, precise positioning multi-GNSS network operating at 2cm (x and y) accuracies.
RAPID SPATIAL ANALYTICS (RESEARCH PROGRAM 2)
Objective 2: To conduct research that improves the ability and efficiency of government and industry to rapidly create and value-add spatial information products, manually or through automation, from devices and cloud-based infrastructure.
SPATIAL INFRASTRUCTURE FOR AUSTRALIA NEW ZEALAND (RESEARCH PROGRAM 3)
Objective 3: To identify and exploit the emerging capabilities of the semantic web to enable Foundation Spatial Data and their spatial data supply chains to create value-added applications.
APPLICATIONS (PROGRAM 4)
Objective 4: To realise high impact use of the CRCSI’s research in the following areas: Agriculture, Natural Resources and Climate Change (4.1) through creation of a biomass and carbon monitoring system for high resolution and high frequency application on farms and through improved environmental monitoring; Defence (4.2) by adapting the capabilities of CRCSI’s research portfolio; and Built Infrastructure (4.5) to build new tools to support sustainable built infrastructure development; and Health (4.4) by helping agencies to spatially enable their clinical databases.
EDUCATION (PROGRAM 5)
Objective 5: To support at least 51 PhD and masters students through to study completions from our industry experienced university partners.
INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY (PROGRAM 6)
Objective 6: To develop and exploit CRCSI intellectual property across all partners, in particular with 43pl.
Objective 7: To generate an additional AU$11million of activity by tackling complex research needs involving multiple partners from both public and private sectors.
