The Australian Department of Defense is seeking to establish an Advanced Radio Frequency Payload Research Network (ARFP-RN) to leverage the wider science, technology, and innovation capability in academia, industry, and government research agencies. The focus of this Research Network will be to develop an innovative space-qualified Radio Frequency (RF) sensor payload that can be integrated with commodity small satellite bus technology for demonstration in space under the Resilient Multi-Mission Space STaR Shot program.
This Request For Proposals (RFP) is seeking responses from industry and academic partners that are interested in and able to contribute expertise and ideas as a partner within the AFRP-RN and/or that have technologies relevant to the proposed payload development.
The agency will provide a research program brief to all interested parties via Microsoft Teams on 15th February 2021 at 10.30am (ACDT). This will provide an opportunity for clarifications and questions to be raised.
