Today’s decision to base Australia’s new space agency at Lot Fourteen on the old Royal Adelaide Hospital site in Adelaide has been welcomed by Martin Garwood, Managing Director of Austest Laboratories.

“The Federal Government’s decision to choose Adelaide as the location for Australia’s space agency vindicates the decision to move and expand our Adelaide Laboratory earlier this year, which now includes a vast range of Environmental and EMC test services catering to the aerospace industry“, stated Garwood.  “The expansion of our Adelaide lab means we can now offer the same comprehensive test offerings (including altitude, vibration, shock and climatics) as our more established Sydney and Melbourne facilities, to fully support SA’s existing and emerging aerospace companies”.
