The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry will allow performance tests on parts and equipment that are still under development to be conducted in space to support the space-related industry led by smaller startups and other enterprises. Parts and equipment used for satellites are required to have capabilities that are different from those that can be demonstrated on Earth. The ministry will expand the range of the space industry by providing opportunities for tests that were previously difficult to conduct and making it easier for smaller startups to pitch their products to major Japanese and foreign manufacturers.
