MEXICO – Three young Mexican engineers involved in the development and launching of nano satellites into space gave a videoconference last March in Japan entitled “Development of satellites in Japan: a contribution of Mexican engineers in the Aoba Velox IV & Ten-Koh missions.”
In a statement, Javier Mendieta Jiménez, general director of the Mexican Space Agency (AEM), explained that the goal of the digital meeting was to boost human capital and to consolidate aerospace development in Mexico.
The three young Mexicans were Rigoberto Reyes Morales, Isaí Fajardo Tapia, and José Rodrigo. All three earned their Masters degree at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), and are currently pursuing their Ph.D. in Engineering at the Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech), in Japan.
The AEM seeks to promote the attraction of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the aerospace industry, to empower the Mexican and space companies that are established, and thus promote more projects in the field.
