The Aeronautics and Space Administration of Nouvelle Alexandrie (ASANA) is the national space agency of Nouvelle Alexandrie responsible for the national space program and the planning and development of space activities or technologies. ASANA formed in 1694 AN, when a government reorganization effort created the agency and separated the space program from the National Science Administration. ASANA is a subordinate agency of the Department of Research and Development. The headquarters are in the city of Cárdenas, the capital of Nouvelle Alexandrie. ASANA also maintains several other facilities in the Regions of New Luthoria, Alduria, and South Lyrica.

ASANA has pioneered several achievements in space and ballistic technology for Nouvelle Alexandrie, making use of its public-private partnerships with several corporations like Javelin Industries and Dingo Enterprises. However, due to varying levels of funding for the agency fiscal year after fiscal year, ASANA has largely lagged behind in the development and launch of space missions, focusing instead in the development of new technologies that have found ample applications in civilian and military contexts.

History

ASANA is an agency created in 1694 AN, when the Government of National Unity, led by then-President of the Government Augustus Strong issued several reorganization directives that split the agency from the National Science Administration, which was an umbrella science research arm of the government that formed part of the New Prosperity Plan of prior governments. The split was meant to ensure that the new agency would focus exclusively on Project Fortuna, the national space program, and the planning and development of space activities or technologies in Nouvelle Alexandrie.

As part of the restructuring, ASANA inherited many of the existing partnerships with private corporations in the homegrown New Alexandrian defense and aeronautics industry, as well as its partnerships with Constancian and Natopian companies. Since the reorganization, ASANA has also established partnerships with the UGB.

Since its formation, the agency has struggled with levels of funding that have been mainly devoted to the research and development of technologies with private and public companies alike that can find profitable military and civilian applications. This has brought considerable attention from several Deputies in the Federal Assembly, who wish to boost funding for the agency to continue its development of technologies but also begin launching space missions to explore space and eventually create an independent high-precision global positioning system that is owned and operated by the government of Nouvelle Alexandrie.

Leadership and Organization

ASANA was established as a government institution to assume the following main responsibilities:

  • signing governmental agreements in the space area on behalf of Nouvelle Alexandrie;
  • inter-governmental scientific and technical exchanges;
  • the enforcement of national space policies and managing the national space science, technology, and industry.

Nouvelle Alexandrie has signed governmental space cooperation agreements with Natopia, Constancia, and the UGB. This has led to greater technology exchanges and cooperation.

Administrators of ASANA are appointed by the Council of State of Nouvelle Alexandrie and confirmed by the lower chamber of the Cortes Federales, the Federal Assembly.
