This week the Australian Navigational Guide Explaining Laws for Space (ANGELS), which will provide guidance for Australia’s burgeoning space industry, met an important milestone in its evolution.

Creating an essential web resource for space startups and entrepreneurs is no mean feat, even in a tech sense.  Accordingly, shortlisted web developers gave pitches to the ANGELS team in Adelaide on 27 March 2019 in order to secure their chance at being involved with this novel and important project for Australia’s space and associated industries.

We will announce the name of the successful developer in our next edition, but note the high quality of pitches on the day, and wish to thank all those involved to attend and contribute, and appreciate the interest in ANGELS.

The ANGELS web resource will have a go live date in August 2019 – this falls just ahead of the commencement of the new and improved Space Activities (Launches and Returns) Act 2018 and subordinate rules.

A board of experts from Adelaide Law School and International Aerospace Law and Policy Group (IALPG) will oversee the ANGELS project, which is managed by Duncan Blake, Special Counsel on Space Law with IALPG.
