In the spirit of reconciliation with our First Nations Peoples, we at Shoal acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
Defence & Space
AIR | LAND | SEA | SPACE
Shoal has been supporting Defence and Space sectors since we were founded in 2001. Our expertise enhances the ability to design and develop the complex cyber-physical capabilities they need.
Across the defence sector, in Australia and abroad, we provide systems engineering support to both government and industry programs. We provide the digital thread from Defence strategy to detailed capability design; modelling and simulation of Defence systems, analytics for evidence based decision making; and digital transformation.
From designing a nano-sat based high-quality communications service for the Antarctic Broadband program, to ensuring the JAXA Hayabusa Spacecraft returned to earth safely, Shoal has broad and deep coverage in the Australian Space sector too. Our experience spans Australian space launches, researching international approaches, exploring opportunities, and revolutionising the digital transformation in space systems engineering.
