22 August 2022

Space technology entrepreneur and former CEO of Clearbox Systems, Jeremy Hallett, has been appointed by Av-Comm Space and Defence to the role of Strategic Advisor to empower Av-Comm’s aspiration to support and sustain Australia’s existing ground station assets and the company’s major expansion into sovereign manufacturing of satellite ground systems.

In his 14-year career at the satellite control system integrator, Clearbox Systems, Mr Hallett led strategy and business development before taking over as CEO in 2021. He has a wealth of space industry experience to bring to his work with Av-Comm including helping found Quasar Satellite Technologies, a CSIRO spin-out company which is commercialising CSIRO’s proprietary phased array technology.

Av-Comm Space and Defence Managing Director Michael Cratt said: “Jeremy Hallett’s understanding of Australia’s space ecosystem, as well as his deep technical and commercial expertise, will be invaluable to our growing domestic and Pacific-focussed business”.

“With our strategic acquisition of STEP Electronics, and a highly skilled workforce that has been part of Australia’s space evolution at every turn, Av-Comm Space and Defence is about to write a new chapter in our history as a ground segment sovereign manufacturer”, Mr Cratt said.
