Introduction to the Mission Idea Contest

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.


  • To create a favorable environment to facilitate domestic/international cooperation among individuals, industries, universities and governments for the use of micro/nano-satellite.

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

The Pre-MIC4 Workshop will provide a forum for MIC participants by inviting the resource providers to develop international cooperations or partnerships.
