The growing industry has been relentless in its developments, tests and launch missions that may disrupt the longevity of the whole ecosystem. Here at OrbitX, whatever we do, we always adhere to our core values of protecting earth and making space more accessible,” said Dexter P. Bano Jr., President and Chief Strategic Trade Compliance Officer. “We will remain flexible yet relentless in our quest to give the Philippines new sustainable technologies focusing on the ultimate goal of Filipino space access. Our core values will remain truthful and we will do our best to fulfill our duties as a member of this international initiative. From our Haribon SLS-1 and beyond, and to all our auxiliary projects, we are full-heartedly committing to make space and earth habitable places in line with the international law governing earth sustainability and space developments.
