Mr. MIYOSHI Hiroaki

Senior Executive Professional, Evangelist of Space ICT- CTO, Space domain - Aerospace and Defense Solutions Division, NEC

Master’s degree in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1991 and joined the Space Development Division, NEC.

During a student, I engaged in the research and development of the ion engine for the deep space probe "Hayabusa".

First 10 years in NEC, I engaged in the development of spaceborne computer system for spacecraft’s autonomous operation, such as earth observing satellite – MIDORI, DAICHI or intersatellite communication system for space station.

For the next 15 years, I dedicated project management of a practical large-scale space data system and contributed to the realization of Japan's national space infrastructure such as imagery intelligence, positioning, navigation, timing, and communications. In 2016, I had been appointed General Manager of the Space Systems Division.

Currently, I’m promoting a new space “commercial” utilization by combining our space and IT network technology as the space ICT evangelist.
