The site is called the Australian Defence Satellite Communications Station.

Does exactly what it says on the tin; acts as a military satcom ground station.

Looks like CASA's application to Metadata access has ben denied!

"Attorney-General keeps CASA out of telco metadata loop
The Attorney-General’s Department has rejected an application from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority for access to reams of customer telecommunications data stored in Canberra’s controversial data retention regime.

The retention laws require all telcos to store customers’ telephone and internet records for a minimum of two years.

The scheme also forces telcos to retain metadata about customers, including the time, identity, billing information, general locations and IP addresses of the senders and recipients — but not the content of communications.

Under previous laws, a range of agencies, from the RSPCA to local councils, could apply for unfettered access to the data.

However, the new laws reduced access from 83 agencies down to 21 specified core criminal law enforcement and security agencies, including the Australian Federal Police, ASIO, state police agencies, and Border Force. Despite the reduction, some 61 government agencies — CASA included — applied for warrantless access to the data. A list of agencies applying for access was revealed this week through a Freedom of Information request.

But CASA has confirmed that its application was rejected by the Attorney-General’s Department.

It previously had access to telecommunications data under the provisions of the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act. In the past year CASA applied for access on 11 separate occasions to aid its investigations into criminal aviation offences.

“Data was used in investigations to confirm other information, provide new information or eliminate people from investigations,” CASA said.

Under the legislation, the Attorney-General can, via legislative instrument, declare agencies “criminal law enforcement agencies” to gain access to metadata. But CASA has not sought such a ruling from the A-G’s office."

or the Greens.
I'm really surprised that no-one has picked up on that comment topdrop!

I strongly urge you to do a bit of research on the Greens policies before you even think about giving them your vote, let alone directing your preferences their way!

I'll give you a hint; Their nickname is the 'Watermelon party' because they are green on the outside and red on the inside.
