The Asian Internet Interconnection Initiatives (AI3) Project is a Japanese-led research initiative that aims to develop cutting-edge technologies by supporting the development of various research initiatives of engineers and researchers.  It also facilitates the development of knowledge-based information infrastructure in the Asian region. ASTI became a partner of AI3 on August 1999 prior to the establishment of PREGINET and eventually established its earth station in 2000 by connecting to the AI3 network. 

About Us

Over the years, the emergence of information and communications technology has greatly affected the lives of people in the world crossing borders among countries and bringing access closer to one another. In the same token, the birth of Microelectronics has resulted to progress in the development of smaller, lighter and more efficient electronic devices.

This development has a striking resemblance to the birth of one of the research and development institutes of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) – the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI). It was in 1987 when President Corazon C. Aquino renamed the then National Science and Technology Authority (NSTA) to Department of Science and Technology (DOST). As an offshoot of such sequential events, the DOST-ASTI was created as a research and development institute of the Department by virtue of Executive Order No. 128.
