JAXA Vision

Key message from JAXA Vision related to STS

Development of capability for autonomous space activities

  • Implementation (Up to 10 years):

    • Maintain and evolve the mainstay launch vehicle by

    • stable operation of H-IIA

    • Develop launch vehicles with high reliability able to

    • carry people safely

    • Continuous operation of the unmanned cargo

    • transportation vehicle (HTV) to ISS

    • Develop inter-orbital transfer vehicles and unmanned

    • recovery vehicles based on HTV


Conclusion l.jpg
Conclusion

  • Maintain our own transportation capability

  • Promote space exploration in coorporation with international partners as ultimate goal of space development for humankind.
