United Arab Emirates (UAE) continues to invest in space exploration

Already home to a $5.4 billion space industry, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is continuing to look at advanced space innovation and exploration.

UAE will host leading industry experts in May at the Global Space & Satellite Forum (GSSF) in Dubai.

Included on the agenda is a wide-ranging list of topics that include space technology applications; innovative solutions; low-cost satellite developments; macro and nano satellites; and others.

Scheduled for May 26-28, the forum is being organized by the Streamline Marketing Group in collaboration with the UAE Space Agency and Emirates Institution for Advance Science and Technology.

“We look forward to taking part in debating the key developments in space technology. We expect this forum to provide an arena that will showcase the competing commercially self-sustaining space programs which are emerging as a direct result of new space technology trends, leading a new era of space utilization similar to the one which paved the way for commercial aviation in the first half of the last century,” said Dr. H.E. Mohammed Naser Al Ahbabi, director general of the UAE Space Agency. “Key to this, we believe, is the development of innovative space technologies and applications, some of which will enable low cost access to space and the emergence of affordable space exploration and human presence in space.”
