heading to OEMF 2019


November 14, 2019

OEMF2019: Space Resource Utilisation for the New Space Economy, 21 - 22 November 2019, UNSW Sydney

This week Tamer founder Matt Madsen is heading to Sydney to take part in the Off-Earth Mining Forum 2019.

Find out more about the Forum below:

About Off-Earth Mining Forum

This event is unique in its approach to bringing the internationalspace community and the Australian mining communities together, which is one reason it remains so popular with our high profile international delegates. This cross-over opens doors for collaborations and knowledge sharing between industry and research organisations from vastly different sectors that would otherwise be near impossible to come by. Bringing a large number of international delegates in this narrow field to Sydney also facilitates networking and partnership opportunities with local researchers and companies that are hard to achieve at much larger events such as the International Astronautical Congress.

UNSW has been nationally and internationally recognised for showing leadership in ISRU and the space-based economy from its infancy as a research area. This has subsequently attracted very high quality local and international research students into NSW. Two projects with different NASA centres (Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Kennedy Space Centre) have attracted funding as a result of this initiative, with resulting high quality publications. In the medium term, the opportunity to establish a research training centre in this area can be built upon solid foundations, including this Forum.

Gravity Challenge


November 5, 2019

GRAVITY Challenge activates the space ecosystem through an event that brings market demand and innovators together to create new and viable offerings leveraging space data.

TAMER founder Bob Moses will be listed on the judging panel for this incredible challenge open to corporates, entrepreneurs and universities. 


GRAVITY Challenge is a national technology innovation program for corporates, entrepreneurs and universities to design and build solutions to real industrial, social and environmental problems by leveraging AWS and Deloitte space capabilities, harnessing the recently announced AWS Ground Station service.


Space could be the biggest disrupter Australia has seen in the past 10 years. According to IBISWorld Industry Report, the global space economy is currently worth of US$130bn today and is forecasted to grow to over $US1.1 trillion by 2040. Although Australia contributes approx. 1% to the global space sector, this is expected to grow at 7.1% per annum over the next 5 years.

Guest lecture by

Robert Moses


November 3rd ,2019

In October of 2018, at the Australian Centre for Space Engineering Research, Robert Moses gave a fascinating presentation on 'Sustaining Human Presence on Mars Using ISRU and a Reusable Lander'. 

This presentation highlighted a study of the impact of ISRU, reusability, and automation on sustaining a human presence on Mars, requiring a transition from Earth dependence to Earth independence.

Read more about that presentation below:

Below is a link to a paper written (courtesy of NASA) on 'Frontier In-Situ Resource Utilization for Enabling Sustained Human Presence on Mars.'

It is on our 'Space Resources' page  and is a curious read, so if you haven't already looked at it, check it out now.

Tamer Space continues to work with Australian Mining Companies for identifying affordable Space Missions that enable new mining capabilities leading to opening currently untapped mines that are simply unachievable and unsustainable based on economic analysis when costing current mining practices. 

Opening these mines will greatly boost Australia's GDP and lead to further investment in Australia's Space Capabilities portfolio.  Furthermore, Tamer Space looks to leverage resources by the Australian Space Agency and its ties with the United States to explore opportunities in Space beginning on the Lunar Surface...”
