KhalifaSat Launch & the Mars Probe
We are proud to have already accomplished a number of significant achievements, most notably the launches of DubaiSat 1 and DubaiSat 2- both which continue to orbit the planet capturing stunning imagery beamed back to our headquarters.
With the ongoing preparations for the launch of the KhalifaSat- The first UAE Satellite Made 100% by UAE Nationals in the UAE- in 2017, and the recount announcement by H.H. Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum- The Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai- for the unmanned Mars probe which is planned to be launched in 2020 is currently in the planning stages, the mission is only just getting started.
