KhalifaSat, the first 100 percent Emirati-engineered and developed satellite, has successfully launched into space from Tanegashima Space Centre in Japan onboard the H-IIA rocket.
KhalifaSat, one of the most technologically advanced remote-sensing observation satellites, with five patents registered, was successfully launched on Monday morning.
The images provided by the satellite will be used in urban planning and management, ensuring the effective optimisation of land use and realistic infrastructure proposals.
The images will also be used to develop detailed maps of targeted areas and monitor major engineering and construction projects.
In the field of environmental protection, KhalifaSat will monitor environmental changes locally and internationally to support global efforts to preserve the environment. More
