Aerospace Technology

Japan’s aerospace industry is constantly developing and promoting its satellite systems, space development initiatives, transportation programmes and operations. As one of the largest users of helicopters, Japan develops and manufactures fuselages, engines and other aerospace components. The technologies used in fuselage and transmission production in Japan enjoy an outstanding international reputation. The main public agency responsible for this sector is JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency). JAXA carries out research and development in the aerospace sector and is defined as a core agency to implement the newly established ‘Basic Plan on Space Policy’ and support the government’s development and utilisation of space on the whole.
