Mr. Lee is trying his best to make an impact in the NewSpace that resulted in the opening of the market to private institutions. He joined KARI (Korean Aerospace Research Institute) in 2002 and worked for 16 years on the launch vehicle KSLV (Naro-1) and the satellites Arirang-2 (KOMPSAT-2) and Chollian (COMS-1) projects. After being in charge of important researches for these projects, Dr. Lee decided to join the private space industry by establishing his own company, spin-off of KARI.

He is not only active in the field of providing ground station and satellite image application services but he is also very active in the field of defense and telecommunications by being the vice-president and board member of KASA (Korea Armaments Safety Association) and of Korea ITU (International Telecommunication Union).

For his contributions on the launching of Naro-1, Dr. Lee also received the Award of Excellence (National Research & Development) from the Ministry of Education in 2017, as well as the Star-Exploration Award from the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future planning for CONTEC’s contribution in the industrialization of technologies as a space venture start-up.

From its foundation to now, and despite the fact that it is a start-up, CONTEC achieved to grow continuously at a local and global scale by building a great network of clients and partners, extending its business field and finally open a branch in Luxembourg this year and participates in many events.
