Our Satellite Based Augmentation System test-bed project has had some recent press through the successful testing results in the construction industry, with Position Partners and UNSW. With an article appearing in this month's Azimuth Magazine. And there were several follow-ups from the aviation sector through Airservices Australia. Including an article in The Australian and one in Australian Aviation.
We launched the new Digital Earth Australia (DEA) Industry Consultation website in conjunction with the First Impressions Report, a couple weeks ago. As the name suggests, this report sets the scene and starts the conversation. In it, we have collected opinions and impression from 30 industry leaders across the spatial and other growth sectors for Earth Observations data in Australia. Workshops will begin in the coming weeks.
A report, published by partners Meat and Livestock Australia, Central Queensland University, and FrontierSI, explores and uncovers the value to be derived by graziers if they could when they remotely monitor the location behaviour and state of their animals.

We are delighted to see one of our important environmental projects become this year’s ABC Science Week national project. The Monitoring Through Many Eyes projects began in 2015 with FrontierSI partners Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and the Queensland Department of Natural Resources, Mining and Energy, as well as ACEMS (the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers) and the Australian Institute of Marine Science. The project uses citizen science to understand and monitor the Great Barrier Reef.
Hello and welcome to our first newsletter in a new era. We are one month into the new financial year and progressively moving to a future where, as FrontierSI, we will build on our track record of successful research outcomes. We are transforming to a more partner focussed organisation which develops, brokers, manages and delivers user-led applied collaborative spatial research initiatives. It’s as busy as ever! Our first month has been an exciting one; signing up partners, creating new governance structures, working with a new board, setting new agile research directions and developing new collaborative initiatives.
