The Centre for Space Science Technology (CSST) is a regional research institute based in Alexandra. The organisation was established in June 2017 and is one of the first regional research institutes to get off the ground in New Zealand.
We are building an agile company that can handle the entire Earth observation data life-cycle, from system design, data capture, data management, dissemination, through to training and support.
CSST is a limited liability company owned by a charitable trust. The trust’s mandate is to benefit regional industries across New Zealand and to educate those industries about the benefits of using Earth observation data in their operations and R&D activities.
An Advisory Committee, made up of members from industry and the research community, will support and assist us with our research agenda.
