Excellence Award 2021

Prize: Award


The Australian Space Awards recognise the best and brightest who are driving the development of Australia’s space economy in the Australian space industry.
Dr Schediwy was acknowledged for his outstanding achievements in space research, in particular the use of free-space laser links to send communication and timing signals through the Earth's turbulent atmosphere - and eventually to outer space.
Dr Schediwy and his team currently hold the world record for the most stable transmission of laser signals through Earth’s turbulent atmosphere, as demonstrated on a horizontal test link with the equivalent atmospheric turbulence as a link to space.
