Skykraft is an Australian space services company that specialises in the design, manufacture and operations of satellite constellations for the delivery of global services. Established in 2017, we are located in a dedicated satellite manufacturing facility in the centre of Canberra as part of UNSW Launch.

Skykraft is currently focused on the development and deployment of a space-based Air Traffic Management (ATM) service. This space-based ATM service addresses the gaps in surveillance and communications for aircraft globally. The ATM constellation will consist of 200 satellites with a five-year constellation refresh program. It will provide seamless global coverage with minimal need for ground infrastructure to pass data to customers and is robust to space weather effects due to constellation redundancy.

As part of the ATM service Skykraft will be launching a 300kg satellite payload in December 2022 with SpaceX. This satellite payload will be the largest Australian manufactured space object ever launched.
