General Manager

Space has long since moved beyond being merely a domain for research. We are well into the stage of expansive commercial opportunities in space. It is hard to imagine everyday life today without satellite broadcasting, communication technology, weather forecasting and global positioning. I believe further exploitation of space as an integral element of business will yield benefits to people across the planet. Anticipating that the expanded commercial exploitation of space will be accompanied by a rapid increase in the volume of data passing through space, I am conducting research and development related to high-bandwidth optical space communication systems.
