In addition, we provide solutions for sky and space fields such as air-traffic management, satellite and satellite related technologies. We are aiming to expand our business field in Social Infrastructure business by introducing various unique Japanese technologies that support sustainable development throughout this region. (e.g. in areas related to digitalization, such as data center, data platform service business, and telecommunication infrastructure business, etc.)
