Japan: The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)

Japan: The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA): was born through the merger of 3 organizations in 2003: namely

  1. the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS),
  2. the National Aerospace Laboratory of Japan (NAL) and
  3. the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA).

JAXA was decided to be the core agency supporting the Japanese government’s overall aerospace development and utilization. JAXA can conduct integrated operations from basic research and development, to utilization.

In 2013, to celebrate the 10th anniversary, JAXA created the corporate slogan, “Explore to Realize,” which reflects its management philosophy of utilizing space and the sky to achieve a safe and affluent society.

Some of the examples of research subjects include:

  1. Structure and origin of the universe
  2. Formation of the earth and solar system
  3. Utilization of the space environment for microgravity experiments
  4. Engineering and technology development for the exploitation of space

Past ITYF fellows have conducted research on the following themes:

  1. Studying the sun and the heliosphere by combining observations and numerical simulations ・ Observing black hole physics across the electromagnetic spectrum
  2. Extreme physics of relativistic jets
  3. Flow and emission models for different astrophysical objects
  4. Computational flow physics and uncertainty quantification for predictive science
  5. Space plasma physics & planetary science

JAXA became a National Research and Development Agency in April 2015.

The various missions/ areas in which  JAXA specializes are:

  1. Satellites and Spacecraft
  2. Earth Observation Satellites
  3. Astronomical Observation Satellites
  4. Communication, Positioning and Engineering Test Satellites
  5. Lunar and Planetary Exploration Spacecraft
  6. Human Space Activities
  7. Material science research in the microgravity environment
  8. Life science research in the space environment
  9. Extravehicular experiments in the exposed environment of space
  10. Research on life in space that can be applied to life on the Earth
  11. Application to culture, humanities and social sciences, and education
  12. Space Transportation Systems
  13. Space Science Research
  14. GREAT, Ground Station for Deep Space Exploration and Telecommunication
  15. Scientific Ballooning
  16. Research on Lunar, Planetary Science
  17. Research on Space Plasma, X-Rays, and Infrared-Rays
  18. Research on Space Technologies
  19. Aeronautical Technology Research
  20. Basic Technology Research
