Senior Researcher, JAXA
Dr. Kenya Harada is Manager for UAS Technology Group, Technology Demonstration Research Unit, Aeronautical Technology Directorate at Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
JAXA was born through the merger of three institutions, namely the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS), the National Aerospace Laboratory of Japan (NAL) and the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA). It was designated as a core performance agency to support the Japanese government’s overall aerospace development and utilization. JAXA, therefore, can conduct integrated operations from basic research and development, to utilization.
