JAXA is Japan's national aerospace agency and is responsible for the research, development, and launching of satellites. The collaboration was established between JAXA and ASTI when the Wideband Internetworking Engineering and Demonstration Satellite (WINDS)  was used to facilitate distance education, regional conferences, and lectures, as well as the development of e-learning materials for human resource development, information technology engineers and instructional designers. ASTI sometimes hosts teleconferencing sessions for Distance learning to deliver the objective of WINDS and JAXA.

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.
