Scientists and students from the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) are collaborating with an inter-institutional group in the development and integration of a standardized platform to participate in the FY22-FTS mission, during the first semester of 2022, with the contribution of the EMIDSS-3 (Experimental Module for Iterative Design of Satellite Subsystems, version 3) Suborbital module, coordinated by the scientific balloon program of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The Secretary of Education, Delfina Gómez Álvarez, emphasized that the Mexican government recognizes the importance of strengthening the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics so that students can participate in projects that contribute to the country's progress.

Arturo Reyes Sandoval, Director General of the IPN, pointed out that the Institution has scientists and technologists with international certifications and with the capacity to work in line with new technological trends.

Dr. Mario Alberto Mendoza Bárcenas, the researcher at the Center for Aerospace Development (CDA) of the Polytechnic and leader of the project, informed that the future suborbital mission will include mechanical and electronic designs by NASA standards.

He commented that experts from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) and the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente (ITESO) are participating in this task, in addition to the support of the private sector.
