Operation DYURRA is the dedicated ADF space operation which integrates space capabilities, services and effects into wider ADF operations. DYURRA is the word for “stars” in the Ngunnawal language.

Operation DYURRA also includes the integration of ADF space operations with our partners through the US-led Operation OLYMPIC DEFENDER. This operation enhances allied cooperation to strengthen deterrence against hostile actors and improve interoperability.

Space domain awareness and access to space services supports decision making, enhances our understanding of the space environment and enables the conduct of synchronised multi-domain operations, activities and actions around the globe.

Australia is committed to a rules-based global order and Defence will continue efforts to promote responsible behaviour in space.

Assured access to space is critical to the ADF’s warfighting effectiveness, space situational awareness and the delivery of real-time communications and information.
