      The Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center (MBRSC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) in South Korea with the goal of cooperating on various space-related activities and transferring expertise. Yousuf Hamad Al Shaibani, director general of MBRSC, and Gwang-Rae Cho, president of KARI both signed the MoU.

      Commenting on the signing, Al Shaibani stressed the importance of the close relationship between MBRSC and KARI. He also referred to the knowledge transfer program with MBRSC’s strategic partner Satrec Initiative, which started back in 2006 with the launch of the first UAE satellite project DubaiSat-1.

      “This MoU provides a concrete basis for the ongoing cooperation and partnership between the UAE and South Korea with respect to transferring the know-how of space technology, within coherent frameworks that will boost the UAE’s position in this regard, especially knowing that South Korea currently has a high profile with its notable achievements in the world space society,” Al Shaibani added.
