International Space University
The International Space University provides graduate-level training to the future leaders of the emerging global space community.
SSTA has forged a partnership with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) under the Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum Space Environment Utilisation Working Group initiative known as the Kibo Asian Beneficial Collaboration (Kibo-ABC), which includes members from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Korea, Thailand and Vietnam. Under this partnership, SSTA is Singapore’s sole organization to offer the following:
- fee-based micro-gravity experiments to be conducted by Japanese astronauts onboard the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM, a.k.a. Kibo)
- in-orbit testing of new materials or technologies exposed to actual space environments,
- potential launching of cubesats and 50kg microsats using JEM Small Satellite Orbital Deployer
SSTA also collaborates with JAXA to invite Singapore-based schools and university students to propose idea of experiment to be conducted onboard the International Space Station (ISS) KIBO module.
