The core team at Equatorial Launch Australia are trusted leaders in the space industry both within Australia and the United States. Their previous experience in enterprise, and, developing space launch facilities has been successfully demonstrated for decades.
Their project management and systems engineering experience is augmented by the involvement of key minds in academia, science and government and cutting edge commercial providers.
In 2018, ELA announced the appointment of Carley Scott as CEO. Carley is an award winning CEO with experience building complex businesses in diverse settings. Her passion for space, enterprise and economic development are enhanced by a focus on driving broader community benefit – resulting in sustainable enterprises that benefit both shareholders and the community.
The experienced, energetic and focused team has already achieved more milestones than similar ventures attempted in Australia, with a 40 year lease secured and a range of customers formalising their interest in launching from the site.
The Gumatj Corporation Limited, Developing East Arnhem Limited and the Northern Territory Government have all been instrumental in supporting this project from the beginning, for seeing its benefits and backing our proposal to be the first commercial space centre in Australia. We look forward to continuing our relationship with these organisations as we move through the construction phase and ultimately to our first launch.
