Scientific Research For The Mexican Satellite System

Cirilo Gabino León Vega


A technology Management Model for the Mexican Satellite System, based on concepts from different writers is proposed such as: management and technology management. This latter concept involves creation, dissemination, use and transfer of technology. At the next step a Systemic Planning Model for the Mexican Satellite System, is proposed, in order to contribute to technological development.

The Stages of Systemic Planning Model for the Mexican Satellite System are: 1 International analysis, 2 Satellite system .analysis, 3. Diagnosis of, national satellite system using the SWOT, 4.. Formulation and answer research questions 5. Proposed solution 6.Mission, vision, values and strategic objectives of the proposal, 7.Strategies, using SWOT: SO, ST, WO and WT combinations, 8. Action plan 9. Technological feasibility, 10.Technological development.   From the analysis and diagnosis, it was found that one of the great strengths in our country is scientific research, including space developed since the 1940s, but it is isolated. It is proposed to found humanist satellite companies, to promote and preserve ecology consisting of self-financing, public, mixed or private initiative, that systemically integrates basic and applied scientific research, among other companies which are engaged in the design, construction and launch of satellites with the purpose of contributing to the technological development to provide an efficient, fast, safe and cheap service to meet the demands of domestic and international users.


The problem is that, in Mexico as in most developing nations, scientific research is not a systemically integrated industry. For this reason, it is impossible for space technology to develop.
