Australia has expressed interest in accessing top‐grade space data from an Indian remote‐sensing satellite that observes the ocean, besides willingness to be a part of a new regional‐satellite navigation system that New Delhi is putting in place. In addition, Canberra wants data from Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) new microwave satellite (RISAT‐1) to monitor precise ground‐level changes, if any, as a result of a geotechnical engineering experiment being undertaken by Australian researchers. If finalised, these projects would add substance to a memorandum of understanding that the two countries signed last October, during the visit of then Australian prime minister Mrs Julia Gillard.
