The Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center announced the completion of the critical review phase for the design of the MBZ-SAT satellite, which is the most advanced model in the region in the field of high-resolution satellite imagery, marking the start of preparations for the development and manufacture of its flight model.

The critical review phase of the design includes conducting a final, multi-pronged technical review, to ensure that work continues on the project, including areas related to fabrication, demonstration and testing, so that it can meet the stated performance requirements, according to cost, schedule and risks.. The final approved design weight of the satellite is more From 800 kilograms, it will be one of the largest and most advanced satellites in the United Arab Emirates.

The MBZ-SAT satellite has played a pivotal role in supporting the UAE space sector, as 90% of the mechanical structure components and 50% of the electronic models have been manufactured in the UAE.. In this regard, the “Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center” “In actively cooperating with regional and international companies in an effort to build a local center for industries related to the space sector, the center has also entered into a partnership with local companies to manufacture and supply components for the MBZ-SAT satellite.
