OSTIn’s Space Journey
In 2013, the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), together with other participating ministries and agencies, established the Office for Space Technology and Industry (OSTIn) in order to capture the economic opportunities and build a thriving space industry for Singapore.
In 2020, OSTIn received an expanded mandate to serve as Singapore’s national space office to develop our space industry, space technology and capability, space policy and regulations, space talent and workforce, and to grow international partnerships and strengthen global space governance.
To grow a globally competitive space industry in Singapore, OSTIn collaborates closely with local and international satellite industry players to realise their business and innovation initiatives for the Asian markets. With a strong focus in driving innovation, OSTIn also works closely with partners within and beyond the Singapore’s space ecosystem to develop key research capabilities and talent to enable sustainable growth of the satellite industry in Singapore.
In addition, OSTIn operates as the national focal point to plan for all civil space matters in Singapore. As a responsible actor in space, Singapore is committed to the peaceful and sustainable use of space resources, and is a member of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS). To that end, OSTIn aims to foster an enabling regulatory environment for Singapore’s space activities.
Supporting the development of our students through space-based STEM outreach program creates a steady pipeline of talent entering the future workforce. OSTIn works with various organisations to support and curate programs to engage the students of all age groups. Click here to find out more about our outreach efforts!
