MAMA aims at supporting Ghana Aerospace Industry

The Michigan Aerospace Manufacturing Association (MAMA) is poised to support Ghana in many areas especially aerospace.

The MAMA has held consultations with experts and citizens on development as the global focus is now based on digitalization.

MAMA serves interest in space ecosystem encouraging private / public partnerships that will affect standard of living of all residents.

MAMA members focus on all phases of aerospace manufacturing from tool to assembly and provide a wide range of services such as business development, education, networking, legislative updates and industry events.

MAMA is committed to positioning Michigan as mid - America's Space Harbor ensuring to play leadership role in the growing commercial and government aerospace industry.

Ghana provides a strategic, geographical advantage because it is close to the Equator, and as the earth rotates, the rotation provides a natural advantage to put satellites into orbit. The further away from the Equator, it takes more energy which means more financial cost.

European and Canadian space companies have been putting launch facilities into African countries including Ghana.

Amazon, Space X and European  broadband internet companies are seeking launch sites that are politically safe, can be guaranteed to be secured from any threats, and fuel sources can be obtained from locally and maintained.

The companies are working to put their satellites constellations into low earth orbit (LEO). There is a race to put thousands of micro satellites into orbit.

MAMA representative Mr. Emmanuel Quaye says Ghana stands to benefit and urged the citizens to be aware and conscious of current global developments with technology.

Mr. Gavin Brown, CEO of the Michigan Aerospace Manufacturing Association hopes the government and people of Ghana would offer the space of opportunity internally and externally for support to gain the benefits from space technology.

He will lead a powerful delegation of MAMA from the United States of America to discuss the next steps to build a spaceport in Ghana since Ghana is closer to the Equator.
