  2. 2. © 2013 UNISEC. All rights reserved. 2 Outline Background Pre-MIC3 workshop • Overview • Objectives • Process and Timeline • Applications • Satellite Users • Satellite Developers • Seeking Regional Coordinator • Reason of Participation • Contact
  3. 3. © 2013 UNISEC. All rights reserved. 3 Background (1) • Mission Idea Contest was launched in 2010 to encourage innovative exploitation of micro/nano-satellites to provide useful capabilities, services. • It provides aerospace engineers, college students, consultants, and anybody interested in space with opportunities to present their creative ideas and gain international attention. MIC2 final presentation, Oct. 10, 2012, Nagoya, Japan
  4. 4. © 2013 UNISEC. All rights reserved. 4 Background(2): Lessons learnt Two MICs were successfully organized in Japan in 2011 & 2012. • Results – Potential utilizations of micro/nano-satellites were provided in the large number of submitted proposals ( regarding the resolution of local and global problems. • MIC1: 62 applications from 24 countries • MIC2:72 applications from 31 countries • Difficulties – To realize the mission ideas due to a lack of resources and capabilities – To formulate ideas for people with little or no background in space engineering, but with good knowledge of other fields • New approach => Pre-MIC3 workshop – Match making between Users and Satellite developers

  6. 6. © 2013 UNISEC. All rights reserved. 6 Pre-MIC3 Workshop Overview • Match-making event for potential satellite users who are looking for solutions and satellite developers who can engineer the user’s idea. – Target satellite(s): weighing less than 50 kg • The formed team (user + developer) will be encouraged to apply for MIC3 • Date: during the 1st UNISEC Global Meeting scheduled in Nov 23-24, 2013 • Venue: University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan • Organizer: University Space Engineering Consortium (UNISEC) • Sponsor: Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), Mitsubishi UFJ Foundation, UNOOSA-BSTI
  7. 7. © 2013 UNISEC. All rights reserved. 7 Objectives • To assist potential applicants in improving the quality of their mission ideas, which are expected to be submitted to MIC3. – the Pre-MIC3 workshop will provide an opportunity for selected users, who do not yet have space engineering background, to present their ideas. The satellite developers or engineers will aid them in translating these ideas into engineered satellite missions. • To increase the probability of realization of the mission by facilitating international collaborations between users and engineers. Pre-MIC3 workshop will provide an opportunity for international experts and potential applicants to exchange opinions and advice to facilitate the match-making process.
