under Support of the Government of Japan



Axelspace Corporation and Synspective Inc. announce a partnership to explore possibilities to provide a one-stop service of small satellite constellation, under the financial support of Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).



METI adopted Axelspace and Synspective as promoters of its project to accelerate R&D and on-orbit demonstrations necessary to build a viable small satellite constellation. In this project, both companies will jointly demonstrate the versatile design applicable to various missions, flexible and scalable mass-production system, and highly automated operation system. Through the construction of small satellite constellations with optical and SAR sensors for Earth observation, Axelspace and Synspective will contribute to securing independence and competitiveness in Japan’s space activities.
