Your job is like a dream! This is the inevitable reaction we get when we tell someone that space is our playing field. Indeed, space is a romantic and awe-inspiring place for many people. However, comparing it to a dream also shows that you perceive it as a distant, unreachable world. If you think about it, this is far from the truth. The GPS receivers in our cars and smartphones, the satellite radio you listen to while driving, the Earth imagery you see every day in weather forecast programs; these are all possible thanks to space technology. It is already part of our daily lives, a luxury of which we are barely aware.
Historically, such space infrastructure has been constructed by governments, mostly because it is normally too costly for the private sector. However, microsatellites are generating a new paradigm, drastically lowering risk and cost for space utilization. We would like to deliver the value of space to as many people as possible, making use of our unique microsatellite technology which we have nurtured for more than a decade since we established the company.
Space is not a special place any more. The day when we routinely use space data across a wide range of industries will come along very soon. We play a leading role to make it happen as pioneers of microsatellite technology.
