The board includes many qualified Emiratis who specialise in several fields related to space, most notably Khalid Abdullah Albuainain Al Mazrouei, Hamad Obaid Al Mansouri, Yousef Hamad Al Shaibani, Faisal Abdulaziz Al Banay, Dr. Mubarak Saeed Al Jaberi, Salem Butti Al Qubaisi, Masoud Mohammed Mahmoud, and Eng.
