Zin Technologies, a NASA prime contractor, has launched operations in Abu Dhabi as the UAE builds its reputation in space technology.
Zin Aerospace Ltd has been incorporated in the Abu Dhabi Global Market, the business district in the UAE capital, to provide space flight physical and life science instrument solutions.
Zin-AS is a space flight hardware engineering company that develops and operates space flight science instruments on the International Space Station (ISS).
Hence, the company will deliver its Low Earth Orbit (LEO) operational experience and life and physical science technologies portfolio to the UAE and the GCC region, offering engineering and space hardware system manufacturing capabilities.
The company, which has partnered with Holding Space AD Limited (HSAD) to coordinate regional efforts, said it brings decades of Low Earth Orbit operational experience and a life and physical science technologies portfolio to the UAE and the GCC.
Also, Zin will collaborate with local agencies and space research centres to encourage young Emiratis to become space scientists and technology pioneers-entrepreneurs.
Carlos Grodsinsky, Director of Zin-AS and Chief Operating Officer of Zin Technologies, said: “Our goal is to complement the UAE’s world-class national space sector by supporting sustainable development and promoting scientific research and innovation in space sciences and technologies to advance the area’s space commercialisation efforts. We have two physical science near term opportunities that we are targeting to operate on the ISS in 2021 with leading complex fluids-soft matter experts in the field and are seeking to launch our UAE collaborations and future science instrument development through this collaboration.”
Khalid Seddiq Al Muttawa, Chair of Holding Space AD Limited, commented: “Zin Technologies decided to launch their first international office in the UAE due to its burgeoning space sector and key interest in the space economy.”
