What is UNISEC?

Concept|Advisory Board|FAQ

UNISEC is a non-profitable organization to support practical space development activities in universities and colleges, such as small satellite and hybrid rockets.

In April 2002, two organizations “UNISAT (University Satellite Consortium)” and “Hybrid rocket group” in Japan merged and obtained corporate status, for more effective and sustainable activities.


Three Pillars

1.Human Resource Development

We provide opportunities for students and all to discuss, stimulate and improve themselves through space development activities.
We support


2.Technological Development

We challenge novel technological developments for future applications. We make much of students’ actions and creative ideas unbounded by traditional ideas, which will lead to breakthrough and needs generation in small satellite and rocket markets.


We bridge across student space development activities and public. We broadcast the student projects and intend to open the doors to those who wish to join us. The distributed UNISEC members all around Japan are happy to host local events as well.
