Research

Supporting research in space science, technology and applications is an integral part of NSSA’s mission. Furthermore, research in space science and technology can also help achieve national research strategy’s objectives in line with Bahrain 2030 vision.

NSSA assures promoting research in space science within the Kingdom through the release of various research announcements in a wide range of science and technology disciplines. Furthermore, NSSA encourages the education sector in the Kingdom to participate and contribute in various space related research activities through providing necessary technical advice and support.

Space Research Area

The National Space Science Agency encourages the education sector in the Kingdom to participate and contribute to various research activities related to space and to focus their research in the following areas:

Physics of the ionosphere and magnetosphere; meteorology, dynamics of the atmosphere; geophysics, geology; astronomy; cosmology; astrophysics; planetary and interplanetary space physics and climatology.

Satellite technology; propulsion systems design and optimization; aerodynamics and heat transfer problems related to space vehicles; guidance and control systems for launch vehicles and spacecraft; polymer chemistry, propellant technology; ultra-light-weight structure; satellite energy systems; space electronics, Space communication systems; orbital mechanics, computer sciences and new material development.

Remote sensing of the earth’s resources: space communication; satellite geodesy image processing, satellite meteorology including weather forecasting, Space Education and Ecology.
