The Melbourne Space Program is grateful to all of its current sponsors and partners for their ongoing support and guidance.
We would also like to acknowledge that the design and build of our ACRUX-1 CubeSat project was funded by the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) granted via the SSAF Grant Program at the University of Melbourne, amounting to AU$325,000 over a two year period. We extend our deepest gratitude to SSAF for providing us with this financial opportunity, without which our inaugural CubeSat project would not be possible.
