Uni of Queensland's Scramjet consortium comes together

The University of Queensland has been working hard with law firm McCullough Robertson to bring together the multinational agreement for their recently awarded Australian Space Research Program Grant.

The agreement involves organisations from Australia, the United States, Japan, Germany and Italy, bringing together more than $9 Million of funding from the consortium to match the $5 Million grant already won as part of the Australian Space Research Program.

The consortium will be working hard to develop scramjet technologies - seen by many as one of the most promising technologies for the future of both Space Launch and Air travel.

This project is already starting to place Australia at the front of the pack for scramjet technology, and is a great example of how Space funding in Australia is vital.
