Pakistani CPEC RSS PakTes-1A Satellite to Launch This Month July 2018

Pakistani CPEC RSS PakTes-1A Satellite Update:

Pakistan is ready to mark an important milestone in its chequered space programme with the launch of an entirely indigenously developed observatory satellite in July 2018, according to information made available by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on June 24th 2018. Pakistani CPEC RSS PakTes-1A Satellite.


Giving details about the development, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal revealed on Twitter that the 285kg Pakistan Technology Evaluation Satellite (PakTES-1A) is fitted with sensors and camera, and will remain stationary 610km in space with its position relative to the sun remaining unchanged. Pakistani CPEC RSS PakTes-1A Satellite.

Known as Remote Sensing Satellite (RSS) and is fitted with cameras and sensors it will be used to study various geographical details, including determination of mineral deposits, climate and weather impacts such as melting glaciers, forest fires, greenhouse gases, and problems related to forestry and agriculture as well. Pakistani CPEC RSS PakTes-1A Satellite.

Pakistan acquired the navigation technology for the satellite from China back in 2012. However, former minister for science and technology Dr. Atta ur Rehman also congratulated Pakistani scientists, calling the launch of the RSS next month a proud moment and a positive step that Pakistani scientists have been able to develop and launch its own local satellite in space. According to him, Pakistan is at least 25 to 30 years behind Indian who has been launching such observatory satellite since the 1970s. Pakistani CPEC RSS PakTes-1A Satellite.

Many infrastructure projects are under construction throughout Pakistan under the CPEC. Originally valued at $ 46 billion, the value of CPEC projects is now more than $ 62 billion. The CPEC will link Pakistani Gwadar port to China’s Xinjiang province.

Presently, three satellites are under design by SUPARCO in collaboration with different universities throughout the country. The SUPARCO says that the first satellite of this programme had been scheduled to launch in July 2018, and it was expected to provide help in exploiting the potentials of space technologies for natural resource surveying and environmental purpose.

RSS technologies are used to detect and classify objects on earth, including on the surface and in the atmosphere and oceans, based on propagated signals.

In the budget presented in April for the fiscal year 2018-19, the government had allocated Rs4.7 billion ($40.7 million) to the SUPARCO. This was a 34 percent higher than the previous year’s budget allocation.

Last year, the SUPARCO announced that the country was all set to launch two satellites, including its first remote sensing satellite, in early 2018.

SUPARCO Chairman Qaiser Anees Khurram had said:
Our first optical remote sensing satellite is all set to be launched in 2018.”
The other, he said, will be an experimental satellite.
Qaiser Anees Khurram added:
“Remote-sensing satellite will have multiple benefits and practical applications, including agriculture, disaster management, urban planning, forestry, water management, weather forecast and other areas.”
The launching of the satellite will support Pakistan’s efforts for self-reliance amid tensions with the US. Only last month, the two countries had imposed tit-for-tat travel restrictions on each other’s diplomats suggesting a new low in their troubled ties.

In January, the US suspended security assistance to Pakistan targeting the Coalition Support Fund. Pakistan responded sharply saying it was not dependent on US aid for the war on terror.
The foreign ministry said Pakistan had fought the war against terrorism largely from its own resources “which has cost over $ 120 billion in 15 years.”
