Cubesats themselves only weigh a few kilograms, and cost a minimal amount compared to those satellites launched in the past. Due to the shrinking of satellites, the rockets that launch them have also shrunk dramatically.
Due to the ability to easily make these satellites, even a few companies are already<BR> building these in Australia.
With these smaller cubesates we are able to monitor the earth for phenomena like: bushfires, crop monitoring, 5G connectivity, and to even help authorities find stranded ships in the sea. From Whaler’s Way we are able to directly launch these satellites into Polar orbits that go around the north and south poles, allowing data to be collected and sent that will benefit the day-to-day lives of much of the worlds population.
In order for the satellites to monitor the entire world, they need to be launched into orbit around the north and south poles. Whaler’s Way (40km South of Port Lincoln) becomes an ideal location, as these satellites can be directly launched southward over the Great Australian Bight towards Antartica without effecting a large about of the population.
Our main focus is the safety of all, thus to ensure peoples safety, an exclusion zone will be put into action around the launch complex and on the ground along the rockets flight path. Only during that time will unauthorised persons or vehicles not be allowed in these areas. Exclusion zones will only be in effect when they are needed, and the public will be provided with ample notice previous to when that will occur.
