Mars mission: Small step for the UAE, giant leap for the Arab world

http://english.alarabiya.net/en/busi...rab-world.html

Quote:
Saeed al-Gergawi, a researcher at the Mohammad bin Rashid Space Centre, told Al Arabiya English editor-in-chief Faisal Abbas that the mission is an attempt to bring glory back to the region.

Gergawi said in order to do that, the government decided against approaching NASA or other space agencies, as the aim is to build a domestic capability. “Our guys and girls are in every component in the larger sense of the mission,” he said.
Quote:
The mission is expected to launch in July 2020, sending a space probe on a 60-million-kilometer journey and arriving at the red planet by 2021 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the founding of the UAE.
Quote:
“A lot of the region isn’t doing well, and we wanted to give the 200 million youth who are in the region the hope to invest in science and technology, and venture into the stars,” said Gergawi.

Both sides discussed ways of mutual cooperation in the fields of governmental and industrial space, partnership between the UAE and Russian space sectors, and mutual cooperation in space exploration, in line with both countries’ ambitions.

They also discussed the exchange of scientific data and information, an exchange of personnel and training of specialists.

“The UAE Space Agency in line with its strategic framework is keen is learn and develop on what other space programmes have achieved in space exploration, which will lead to knowledge transfer of space technologies to the country” said Al Rumaithi.

"The meeting aimed to develop ways of cooperation between the UAE and the Russian programmes in the space industry and space exploration.”

Dr Mohammad Nasser Al Ahbabi, director general of the UAE Space Agency added: “The MoU complements the outstanding relationship between the space sectors in both countries and supports the development of a partnership in several fields and activities. It will also allow for knowledge transfer to national cadres, and benefiting of the Russian Space Agency’s expertise, especially in space technology and specialist training.”

The agency’s first task is to press ahead with sending the UAE's 'Hope Probe' mission to Mars by 2021, which is timed to coincide with the UAE's 50th anniversary of the union of the emirates.

UAE signs Mou with China for cooperation in space science

Aiming at defining coordination framework for data exchange, joint studies and peaceful exploration of outer space


http://www.emirates247.com/business/...12-28-1.615317

Quote:
The UAE has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the People's Republic of China concerning defining a framework for collaboration in studies and development in space science, as well as the peaceful exploration of outer space.

According to the new MoU, the UAE Space Agency and China National Space Agency will represent the two countries in exchanging information, studies and scientific data in the field of space exploration and peaceful exploitation. The data exchange will include scientific and research expertise, as well as training, capacity building, lectures, conferences and other space related domains.

The MoU also covers collaboration in research and development of satellites for scientific, testing, remote sensing, and communications purposes. The collaboration will include services such as launching, follow up, control, as well as developing and controlling ground satellite systems.

The parties agreed to form a joint committee for cooperation in the field of space science. The committee will meet biennially or as required, and will have the authority to form temporary work groups or groups to oversee certain programs. The agreement also sets the ground for relevant institutions working in the field of space in both countries to sign further agreements concerning collaboration.

The agreement comes in line with the strategic bilateral relations that join the UAE and the People's Republic of China, founded on mutual respect and trust, and are based on political, economic and social joint interests.

Given its strategic location as a geographical hub joining the east and the west, the UAE enjoys special ties with China as a strategic partner and a gate for the People's Republic to the Middle East, and forms an important component of China’s 'Belt and Road Initiative' which offers an invaluable opportunity to enhance welfare and economic development in the Middle East.

Commenting on the new MoU, Dr. Khalifa Al Rumaithi, Chairman of the UAE Space Agency, said: "The UAE Space Agency recognises the importance of international collaboration in the field of peaceful exploitation of outer space, as this field is considered a common heritage for the humankind. It is extremely important in our view for all competent entities in this field to work together for a common goal of enhancing welfare of humanity."

"The UAE enjoys a strong relationship with China in various fields, including education, social and cultural fields. We are looking forward to enhancing this relationship via the new MoU, which comes in line with our strategic plans to expand collaboration with China, in what brings prosperity to both countries," he added.

For his part, Dr. Mohamed Nasser Al Ahbabi, Director General of the UAE Space Agency, said: "The UAE Space Agency is keen on building on the success of other space programs in its plans and strategies, which necessitates knowledge and experience transfer into the UAE. China's space program is considered one of the most prominent programs worldwide, with a rich record of achievements since it was established. The new MoU will play an important role in developing capacities in both countries in the space sector, and space exploration in particular."

NASA and the UAE team up on space exploration

The agreement lets them share spacecraft, research and more.


https://www.engadget.com/2016/06/12/...e-exploration/



Quote:
NASA wants whatever help it can get for its journey to Mars, and it's willing to forge some unusual partnerships to make that happen. Case in point: the agency has reached an agreement with the United Arab Emirates that will have them cooperating on space exploration. The deal lets them share everything from data and research facilities to aircraft and spacecraft. Mars exploration is the initial focus of their cooperation, but they'll look at other areas where they can work together.

The deal makes sense despite the UAE's relative lack of experience with space travel. The UAE gets the prestige of directly contributing to one of humanity's greatest exploration missions. For NASA, this offers chances to both reduce its reliance on Russia and stretch its budget a little further. Whatever the motivations, the pact will pay off if it helps bring humans to other worlds.

Space Agency will give wings to the UAE’s dreams

http://www.thenational.ae/opinion/co...he-uaes-dreams



Quote:
Two years after its inception, the UAE Space Agency is about to take a major leap as it nears the completion of a regulatory framework for the sector.

The national policy for the space sector aims to build an industry that is strong and sustainable – one that supports and protects national interests, as well as other vital sectors, and contributes to growth and diversification of the economy.

It also must enhance Emirati talent, develop scientific and technical capabilities and nurture a culture of innovation and national pride that will consolidate the country’s position regionally and globally.

The policies will lay out the key principles that explain how the space sector will contribute to achieving the national vision and objectives, in addition to fulfilling the UAE’s goals and aspirations with regard to space activities.

The policy will include a set of guidelines and instructions for the authorities concerned about the need to support and develop the space sector of the state. It will set out the role of the Space Agency as well as its stakeholders. The policies will be in line with Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, which aims for access to a more diversified economy and to reduce dependence on oil.

The Hope Probe project to explore Mars remains at the top of the agency’s projects, given its scientific significance while offering a platform for the development of the country’s space sector.

This ambitious project not only puts the UAE in the ranks of developed countries that have space programmes but it will serve as the pride of the nation and the region as a whole, as it is the first Arab project of its kind that includes the launch of a space probe. It is a sign of the Arab world’s capacity to contribute to the enrichment of human knowledge and civilisation.

There are four strategic plans for the space sector. Firstly, to raise it to international standards so as to fulfil national interests.

Secondly, to support sustainable development and promote scientific research, innovation and projects in the related area so as to place the UAE on the global map.

Thirdly, to attract and prepare nationals to become leaders in the field of science.

Finally, the plan is to build and strengthen relations with international organisations within the space sector that will contribute to the development of the national industry as well as ensure that all services meet quality standards, efficiency and transparency.

The formation of the advisory committee for the UAE Space Agency has given us the necessary guidance in the creation and development of the agency. We greatly benefit from the specialists and experts in various fields and disciplines meeting under one roof.

To benefit from the exchange of experiences with space specialists is part of the framework of the strategic plans for the UAE that were drafted in line with the vision of the wise leadership.

It is all in line with Vision 2021 that aims to help the UAE become one of the best countries in the world by the time it reaches its 50th anniversary.

Dr Mohammed Al Ahbabi is director general of the UAE Space Agency
