All missions carried out by the UAE Space Agency will be led by Emirati nationals. The missions will boost the nation’s human capital through knowledge transfer from international partners, as well as increase knowledge about space exploration and our mission to Mars is not different.

UAE space exploration programmes will not be limited to Mars, but other projects will be developed and we believe that this is a huge step forward for the development of our nation and our people.

The vision is for the UAE to be among the top countries in the field of space and aerospace by 2021.

We have the strongest determination, the greatest ambitions, and a clear plan to reach our targets.
