About us

MESH IN SPACE (registered business name) was founded as a spin-off of the University of South Australia (UniSA) on 5 December 2021.

On 9 February 2022, we were officially announced to be part of the 2022 Venture Catalyst Space program organised by UniSA’s Innovation & Collaboration Centre (ICC).

What we do

Problem: Satellite constellations are expanding rapidly at low Earth orbits (LEOs), and their connectivity is best served by the mesh topology. However, there is a lack of homegrown secure communication solutions.

Solution: The Australian Civil Space Strategy 2019-2028 has four Strategic Space Pillars, one of which is to develop national capability in areas of competitive advantage. Guided by this Strategic Space Pillar, we are currently dedicating ourselves to building a mission-ready communication software suite, including a network protocol stack, for mesh-networked satellite constellations focusing on cybersecurity.

Our vision

Is to be the one-stop shop for space organisations seeking to secure their space assets from cyber threats.
