posted on 27/06/2016: 1904 views



The UAE Space Agency has signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, with Global technology leader, Lockheed Martin, to launch a comprehensive dual-track space training programme for students and early career professionals in space fundamentals.

Designed to prepare tomorrow's Emirati leaders for future careers in space, the programme will feature a comprehensive four-month space training programme that will take place at the Lockheed Martin Centre for Innovation and Security Solutions in Masdar City and in the US. The programme supports the UAE's strategic vision to create an indigenous talent pipeline of students and professionals inspired towards long-term careers in the space industry.

"The UAE Space Agency recognises the importance of partnering with a global space leader to inspire, train and develop future Emirati trailblazers in this field of space. We're proud to work with Lockheed Martin to develop capabilities and support knowledge transfer in this area of critical national significance. We look forward to seeing these early career professionals leading the UAE's space sector into a bright future," said Dr. Khalifa Mohamed Al Romaithi, Chairman of the UAE Space Agency.

"We are committed to working together with the UAE Space Agency to execute their national priorities and space ambitions. We are excited to help develop the UAE's most important resource: the human potential that will power the country into space," said Robert S. Harward, Chief Executive of Lockheed Martin in the UAE. "This programme reflects our support for this sector of vital importance to the UAE. Lockheed Martin has been at the forefront of space exploration technology since the beginning, and we're deploying all of our expertise from around the world to encourage and train the UAE space explorers of tomorrow."

As a trusted partner of the UAE with more than 50 years of regional experience, Lockheed Martin supports the UAE's national space priorities and strategic objectives of helping build the region's space sector. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395297168921.html
