Australia has a long history in space affairs. Space activities are important to Australia in both monetary and utility terms. However, before the applicant can operate the new Australian satellite network, it must comply with the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) satellite rules and specifications and coordinate with other satellite before obtaining a license in Australia and must get permission from the Australian Communications and Media Authority (the ACMA), the satellite regulator of Australia. Additionally, the satellite license system in Australia is divided into different types depending on the type of satellite used. For regulations on the rights to send and receive signals into the country by foreign satellites (Landing Rights), foreign satellite network means any satellite network that is registered with ITU, even if there is also a satellite network service in Australia. ACMA will regulate foreign satellites only if the satellite service uses Australian frequencies.
