WE ARE ALL INSPIRED BY THE GLOBAL EFFORT TO EXPLORE SPACE

BUT ADVANCING THE LIMITS OF SPACE TECHNOLOGY IS A CHALLENGING AMBITION.

In the UAE
we are poised
to support
space exploration
and transform
the future

“there is a need to attract the right talent and create the right environment for the space industry to flourish”

Sarah Al Amiri during a virtual session of World Government Summit Dialogues in Dubai

SGP SPACE
EXISTS TO SERVE
ONE SIMPLE MISSION:

TO CONNECT
THE PIONEERS,
LEADING THE
AGENDA IN
SPACETECH & SCIENCE,
WITH THE WORLD’S
BEST MINDS
AND TALENT
OF TOMORROW

AND HELP PUSH SPACE SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY BEYOND LIMITS IMAGINABLE.

For the UAE’s space economy to flourish we need to attract the righ talent to the region. If you’re inspired by our mission, get in touch

“The future demands active curiosity, open minds, and a determination to resolve challenges as they present themselves.”

We asked Google what the biggest challenges in space exploration and discovery are, and as expected we found that NASA is way ahead of the game.

Designed to initiate thought and discussion, NASA’s Space Technology Grand Challenge program defined the challenges facing space technology into three key themes: (1) Expand human presence in space, (2) Manage in-space resources, and (3) Enable transformational space exploration and scientific discovery.

(1) Expand Human Presence in Space

  • Economical Space Access
  • Space Health and Medicine
  • Telepresence in Space
  • Space Colonisation

(2) Manage In-Space Resources

  • Affordable Abundant Power
  • Space Way Stations
  • Space Debris Hazards
  • Near-Earth Object Detection and Mitigation

(3) Enable Transformational Space Exploration and Scientific Discovery

  • Efficient In-Space Transportation
  • High-Mass Planetary Surface Access
  • All Access Mobility
  • Surviving Extreme Space Environments
  • New Tools of Discovery

NASA’s Space Technology Grand Challenge program is an open call for cutting-edge technological solutions that solve important space-related problems, radically improve existing capabilities or deliver new space capabilities altogether.
