Space Technology Development Programme (STDP)
OSTIn’s S$150M flagship Space Technology Development Programme (STDP) seeks to develop space capabilities to support domains such as aviation, maritime and sustainability, which are critical to Singapore and many other countries, as well as disruptive space technologies that can improve the country’s space industry’s competitiveness.
Projects supported by the STDP include:
• Very Low Earth Orbit (VLEO) satellite technologies that would allow satellites to operate in orbits closer to earth and deliver differentiated capabilities.
• Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) satellite solutions that would enable quantum-safe transmission of secure information.
• Use of satellite data for applications such as carbon Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV), agriculture, pollution monitoring.
In addition, OSTIn is exploring new opportunities emerging in the space economy, such as on-orbit servicing, in-space manufacturing and space life sciences, including whether Singapore’s strengths in domains like AI, robotics, materials science and life sciences can be pivoted to support space applications.
