CENTRE FOR SPACE SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY

The Centre for Space Science Technology (CSST) will help New Zealand’s industries access new and existing space-based measurements and will develop satellite data products and solutions specific to industry needs to drive regional economic growth. Our vision is to enable thriving regional industries across New Zealand that have gained or maintained an internationally competitive advantage by making smarter decisions using state-of-the-art products and services that capitalise on the availability of space-based data.

SATELLITE DATA BROKERAGE

CSST will host a New Zealand-focused national satellite data archive and will act as a data broker to reduce entry barriers for regional businesses and industries wishing to use space-based measurements.

DATA products FROM SPACE-BASED IMAGERY

CSST will use existing space-based imagery available from international space agencies, as well as data resulting from a CSST satellite programme, to create data products such as maps of soil moisture in concert with, and to meet the needs of, New Zealand’s regional industries.

CubeSat programme

Over the next five years, CSST will design, build, launch, and operate satellites to provide niche space-based measurements not available elsewhere.

About Us

Headquartered in Alexandra, CSST will also operate offices in Dunedin, New Plymouth, and Lincoln.
