CubeSats are a new class of small satellites disrupting the international satellite market.  CUAVA aims to develop Australian capability to meet commercial market needs.

Funded by the Australian Research Council, and working with Industry Partners, Cuava’s mission is to train the next generation of workers in advanced manufacturing, commercial space and Uncrewed Aerial Vehicle (UAV) applications. In doing so, it aims to develop new instruments and technology to solve crucial problems, and develop a world-class Australian industry in CubeSats, UAVs, and related products.

It has been in operation since December 2017, and is based at the University of Sydney, Camperdown Campus.
