Exploring the Blue

A youthful curiosity that leads us far into the blue and beyond in bold pursuit of our passions.
A pioneering mindset that sees the deep blue ocean of outer space as part of our culture.
An unwavering vision of our earth as a pale blue dot among countless stars.
This is what “blue” means to us.

With our development of man-made shooting stars and the science behind it,
we want to inspire and share the idea that the future is ours to create.
Our adventurous spirit thrives on exploring the unknown
and pushes us to take a bold step toward that future.

By sparking the curiosity of people with our world-first space entertainment business
and gathering middle atmosphere data that will help shed light on climate change,
we contribute to the sustainable progress of science and humankind.

Our Approach

Sky Canvas (Space entertainment)
Atmospheric Data
Small satellite research & development

Throughout our three business activities and a new approach to create value in both entertainment and science, we aim to make space closer for all of us together and contribute to the sustainable development of humankind.

How We Make This Possible

Our technology is what helps us turn our dreams into reality.
With a team of experienced engineers in mechanics, electronics, software and well-experienced space experts in satellites, ground system and space development, our technology team works together in an open innovation environment with inflows and outflows of knowledge accelerating the research and development of small satellites, plasma and material technology.
The team has developed two satellites in 2019, which are both now successfully launched and orbiting in space. With Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) approved safety standards, we have acquired various permits from necessary agencies and countries in appointed locations.

ALE-1 successfully launched into space on JAXA Epsilon, January 2019.
ALE-2 successfully launched into space on Rocket Lab Electron, December 2019.
