The Plan has been developed in recognition of the fact that Australia, and indeed the world, is on the cusp of a new era in the provision of global and regional navigation satellite systems.

In the coming decade, the familiar and widely used Global Positioning System (GPS) will be joined in space by comparable systems from Russia (GLONASS) , Europe (Galileo) and China (Beidou), along with regional augmentation systems from Japan (QSZ) , India (IRNS) and possibly other countries.
