Research on functional materials for space and small electric propulsion system

Among the technologies critical to spacecraft (satellites and other vehicles operated in space), our research focuses on small electric propulsion systems, and protection technologies for reducing space environment risk. We have been striving to overcome challenging new obstacles to meet the requirements for future space missions while ensuring the secure, reliable implementation of our ongoing projects.
