Tokyo – Space BD, a leading Japanese startup, has been awarded by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) as one of the private sectors to study for sustainable space utilization in low Earth orbit (LEO).

This project should ensure that Japan’s space utilization initiatives, which have developed and matured through the Japanese experiment module Kibo on the International Space Station (ISS), will be succeeded smoothly in future low Earth orbit activities. The object is to put together a scenario for JAXA based on the premise of using LEO as the commercial base (commercial station) and to contribute to future activities in space.

Space BD has been providing support on projects utilizing space in a wide range of areas, including technical development, life science, and entertainment. It will be imperative to identify and capture as much commercial demands as possible from businesses and research entities in the post-ISS period, and Space BD is prepared to propose a suitable business model that responds to these demands.
