Concept Note (PDF VERSION

1. Background and Objectives

The Space Technology Working Group (STWG) aims to enhance and support space technology development in the Asia-Pacific region by active information exchange among experts from space agencies, academic institutions, and from industry in the region. At APRSAF-25 in Singapore, participants exchanged the latest information on space technology research and development, capacity building, active industry participation/promotion and space debris. Furthermore, productive discussions were held on the initiative “Joint Development of Innovative Small and Cube Satellites,” which was proposed by Asia-Pacific regional space agencies in APRSAF-24.

The goal for the STWG in APRSAF-26 is to add value to this working group by turning STWG into a core information hub to collect, discuss, and exchange a wide variety of information for space technology development in the Asia-Pacific region.

A) Introduce market, technology and application trends that will enable participants to deepen their understanding of the overall status of the industry in the region.
B) Share best practices/successful examples and challenges for attaining space technology, leading to future discussions for solutions and new international cooperation and joint programs in the region.

2. STWG Program Structure

The proposed program structure of the STWG for this year’s session is given below. The STWG co-chairs are pleased to call for presentations (approximately 10-15 minutes per presentation) on each topic from the Asia-Pacific region as well as from other regions and industries. We look forward to receiving new and exciting proposals on cutting-edge technology and innovative programs that will spark conversations among experts, researchers, and engineers in relevant areas.

Space Technology Working Group Sessions
Date: November 26-27, 2019

1. Opening of the session

2. General introduction and guidance for STWG

3. Technical Sessions

  • Technical Session 1: Recent Trends in the Space Industry

    This session will begin with a keynote introducing market, technology and application trends. Following the keynote there will be a panel discussion by speakers from governments, institutes and space agencies in the Asia-Pacific region to discuss topics raised in the keynote and introduce each country’s visions, goals, activities and challenges. Other topics covered in the presentations will include recent R&D/commercial activities from industries including small/medium enterprises and industrial support programs from national/international organizations/institutes, governments and other participants. Presenters are expected to introduce advanced and innovative technologies or industrial support programs.

  • Technical Session 2: Activities and Challenges of Space Technology

    In this session, best practices/successful examples and challenges of space technology, capacity building, personnel training programs and international cooperation will be introduced by universities, national/international organizations/institutes, governments and other participants. It is most welcome that presenters present experiences that can be applied commonly to solve common technological challenges in the Asia-Pacific region. Given this information, the working group will be able to understand best practices and solutions broadly and seek future international cooperative actions during the session.

  • Technical Session 3: Activities for a Sustainable Environment in Space

    This session will share the current status of the space environment through a keynote. Discussions held at the Inter-Agency Space Debris Coordination Committee (IADC) and safety standards for on-orbit servicing will be introduced as well as visions, goals, activities and challenges by industry, universities, national/international organizations/institutes, governments and other participants to recognize the significance of international cooperation to find solutions for this topic.

  • Technical Session 4: Status report on the “Joint Development of Innovative Small and Cube Satellites”

    The current status of the “Joint Development of Innovative Small and Cube Satellites” initiative will be reported. Discussions regarding this topic have been held among interested entities in the region and the concept, ideas and issues of the program will be presented.

*Please note that the topics of the technical sessions are subject to change.
