Synergy Correlation

Hsia Yu-Xin, a senior student from the department. of Hydraulic and Ocean Engineering of NCKU, participated in the 30th Satellite Design Contest in Japan(第30回衛星設計コンテスト), and designed an integrated satellite system for water and disaster prevention with the theme of "STARSAR". wrote an academic paper and created a physical model to compete with students from Tokyo University, Kyoto University, and other top universities in Japan, and won the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers award on November 12th, 2022.
  The Satellite Design Contest in Japan has been held since 1993 and is organized by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and leading Japanese societies in the fields of aerospace and mechanics (Electronic Information and Communication Society, Japan Society of Mechanics, Japan Aerospace Society, Japan Astronomical Society, etc.), and co-organized by various Japanese government departments (Cabinet Office Space Development Strategy Promotion Bureau, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, etc.). It is a highly regarded annual competition in the aerospace and satellite related fields in Japan and is well known internationally.
  Hsia Yu-Xin proposed the use of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites for water resources disaster prevention monitoring and applications. The observation band of SAR can penetrate the clouds and obtain ground information directly under the influence of typhoons and clouds and rain, which is much more valuable than ordinary optical satellites, especially for the northwest Pacific monsoon belt with high cloud coverage.  Hsia Yu-Xin was one of the 15 essays that made it to the second stage of the final competition, out of 68 essays submitted this year. In previous years, the organizer provided transportation costs for the finalists to travel to Tokyo for the competition, but this year, due to the epidemic, foreigners were restricted from entering the country, so Hsia Yu-Xin could only participate in the final online. It is noteworthy that, for the first time in the 30 years of the Japan Satellite Design Competition, Hsia Yu-Xin was the first foreign participant to write a paper in Japanese, presented it in Japanese, and received impromptu questions from Japanese scholars and experts. He was recognized by the judges and finally won the award of the "The Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers award.”

 At the end of the final round, the chair of the review committee gave high praise to Hsia Yu-Xin and said, "We would like to express our respect to you for your detailed response to all the review comments after the preliminary round in an academically correct manner with limited time and resources, which is an effort and implementation that is far beyond our imagination. Furthermore, your ability to write and deliver your paper fluently and orally in Japanese demonstrates your high potential and will definitely contribute to your future success." 

 

Hsia Yu-Xin received the award online.
