Follow us on Mission Idea Contest on Facebook

The Mission Idea Contest (MIC) was established in 2010 to provide aerospace engineers, college students, consultants, and anybody interested in space with opportunities to present their creative ideas and gain attention internationally. The primary goal of MICs is to open a door to a new facet of space exploration and exploitation.

Objectives of Pre-4th Mission Idea Contest (Pre-MIC4) Workshop

  • To create a favorable environment to facilitate domestic/international cooperation among individual, industry, university and government for the use of micro/nano-satellite.

  • To increase the probability of realization of the mission by inviting resource providers, which is expected to support/contribute their mission ideas for possible realization. The resource provider can be companies, space agencies or other government sectors as well as individual experts.

The Pre-MIC4 Workshop will provide a forum for MIC participants by inviting the resource providers, in terms of seeking possible international cooperation or partnership arrangements.
