National Committee for Space and Radio Science

The National Committee for Space and Radio Science (NCSRS) aims to foster the space and radio sciences in Australia, to link the Academy to Australian space and radio scientists and relevant scientific societies, and to serve as a link between Australian and overseas space and radio scientists, primarily through the International Union for Radio Sciences, the Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics and the Committee on Space Research.

Mid-term review of the 2010-2019 decadal plan for Australian space science

In 2010, the National Committee for Space Science (disbanded in 2013) delivered the 2010-2019 Decadal plan for Australian space science, presenting the Australian space science community’s strategic vision for 2010–2019. In 2015–16, the focus of the NCSRS will be to undertake a mid-term review of the decadal plan to reassess its recommendations and implementation and suggest any necessary changes. Two objectives of the committee will be to perform a census of the space and radio science communities—their demographics and strength—and to bring together, where applicable, various smaller Australian space and radio science conferences into one conference of significant national interest.

For further information, see mid-term review of the 2010-2019 decadal plan for Australian space science.
