I am Director of Australian Astronomical Optics which constructs major instrumentation for observatories around the world.

AAO currently runs over 20 projects with deliverables to be shipped internationally to the USA, Europe, Turkey, South Korea and India. These are generally opto-mechanical assemblies, often working under vacuum or cryogenically and including electronic sensors, associated electronics and control software. Data management of the large data volumes produced in Astronomy is also a key skill at AAO. Recently we have begun entering the Australian space market and have secured multiple funded payloads and agreements for future collaboration.
