The first experimental satellite NExSat-1

About the project

 This is an ambitious program to build, launch, and operate a set of experimental satellites in a program called (NExSat Program).
This program starts with the first satellite NExSat-1.
 NExSat-1 project intended to build, launch, and operate an experimental satellite for Earth observation.
This satellite is built by EgSA (Egyptian Space Agency) experts in a qualified Egyptian facility developed and prepared for this purpose at the Space Operating Centre in the Space City, as well as tested in space labs in the Space City.
NExSat-1 is a Remote Sensing satellite Equipped with a Panchromatic Camera with a resolution of 5 meters. 
The Satellite is planned to be launched by December 2021 at an altitude of 500 Km.
BST Germany is our partner and consultant in this project.
