We play a vital role in the US Air Force Academy’s world-wide Falcon Telescope Network, housing one of the 12 telescopes. Working in collaboration with institutions from across the globe, the University provides the infrastructure needed to support the Canberra node. 

Optical observation of spaceborne objects, such as debris and the growing cubesat population, is conducted at UNSW Canberra Space, using the Falcon Telescope Network to evaluate the object interaction with the atmosphere.
