DST Group is undertaking research into small satellites including the development of the Buccaneer CubeSat. This mission is being progressed by DST in partnership with the University of NSW Canberra, and will launch in 2017.

Developed and built in only 11 months by the Weapons Research Establishment (WRE) Salisbury, now DST Group Edinburgh, the Australian satellite ‘WRESAT’ was launched from Woomera on 29 November 1967 and was a co-operative effort between Australia, the US and UK. Australia became the third country in the world behind the US and USSR to build and launch its own satellite.
