North Australian Satellite Validation Facility
In 2021, Territory company Maitec established the North Australian Satellite Validation Facility in Litchfield National Park, approximately 80km south of Darwin, in partnership with ACRI-ST, the European Commission, European and German space agencies, and universities of Southhampton and Valencia.
The site is permanently equipped with a variety of instruments to measure soil moisture and temperature, understorey and canopy cover and leaf area index, with plans to expand this suite further in the near future.
