OUR VISION IS TO DEVELOP A REUSABLE SPACE TRANSPORTATION VEHICLE IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS, WITH THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF CONDUCTING HIGH-FREQUENCY SPACE TRANSPORTATION USING A FULLY REUSABLE SINGLE-STAGE SPACE REUSABLEVEHICLE (SSTO) IN THE 2040S.
Israel is one of the few countries with its own satellite launch means, and in recent years it has become famous as a start-up powerhouse. The Israeli government has identified the civil space industry as a priority sector and has set a policy goal of investing US$170 million over five years.
AS FOR BILATERAL RELATIONS BETWEEN JAPAN AND ISRAEL, AN INVESTMENT AGREEMENT HAS ALREADY BEEN CONCLUDED, AND NEGOTIATIONS ARE CURRENTLY UNDERWAY BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES TO CONCLUDE AN ECONOMIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT (EPA).
It is against this backdrop that we have decided to participate in a start-up mission to accompany Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Yasutoshi Nishimura on his visit to Israel.
As a start-up company, we will contribute to the development of science and technology and the peaceful use of outer space under the friendly relationship between Japan and Israel.
