SPACE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS TELESCOPE (SST)
Exmouth, WA
Client: Department of Defence

_

_

The Space Situational Telescope was relocated from New Mexico to a purpose-built facility at the Harold E Holt Naval Base in Exmouth. Sitzler undertook the role of IMC for Defence and through the integration of a US design constructed the new facilities under Australian Standards with upgrades to suit installation in a cyclonic area.
The construction was unique providing the Azimuth base with an ultra-stable central and isolated concrete pier and a Dome structure of some 270 Tonnes that rotates in synchronicity with the telescope at a maximum of 17 degrees per second.
The unique state of the art facilities will assist to develop the Australian Defence Force and enhanced southern hemisphere space surveillance capability. They will be remotely operated by RAAF in collaboration with the United States providing an increased ability to monitor satellites and track space debris.
