Our Space OdysseyLead the frontier era of space with our CubeSat technology

MessageOur Thought

Space is always dark and unknown place for mankind yet mysterious. The era when space field where only limited national projects or big companies were able to touch had finished. The human thirst for reaching out of space now brings a chance for everyone on the planet to explore it.

Private space business and Economic Activities related to Space tour, space transport, space mining is now a commonplace business.The area of human activity in space will expand dramatically.

We are leveraging high level space expertise and software development capabilities, and establish communication infrastructure on both the ground and space to use / move space more comfortably and seamlessly.

Our Services



Communication Infrastructure business

1. Communication Infrastructure Business for Low Orbit Satellites

Portable Ground Station

High-performance portable ground station that easy to set up, and able to access the satellites real-time via the internet. (Launched November 2018)

On-demand Ground Station Services

Able to use the ground station installed by WARPSPACE which placed around the world, through the web service or API. (Service launching from September 2019)

Intersatellite Communication Infrastructure Service

We are deploying the data relay CubeSat for intersatellite communication service, between LEO and lunar transfer orbit which conform to the needs of the market. (Around the year 2025)

Module development business for small satellites

2. Module Development Business for Small Satellites

Module for Small Satellite

We are developing low-cost modules for small satellites which bringing technology of WAPRPSPACE and University of Tsukuba together. (Each module for power supply, communication, OBC, GPS go on sale in the fall of 2019)

Development of World’s Smallest Modules

In collaboration with JAXA and University of Tsukuba, we are developing world’s smallest attitude control module and ion engine (electric propulsion engine).

Satellite related Technology transfer business

3. Business Related Transferring Satellite Technology

We provide support to government agencies and local companies in developing countries, for them to acquire the satellite technology. In the first year, we will invite the research personnel to the city of Tsukuba, and work on the actual satellite development and control. In the next year, the individual will move back to their country and we will support making satellite launch come true within two years.
