Khalifa Sat is the first satellite to be developed within UAE’s space technology laboratories and by two UAE engineers in full, and the third satellite to be owned by Dubai Sat-1
and Dubai Sat-2.

The KhalifaSat project is the first technical project to be fully developed within the Center’s space technology laboratories in the UAE and by UAE engineers. The “Prospect of Hope” to be launched into Mars orbit in 2020 will be designed and developed by the Center’s engineers. Promising and ambitious is a very advanced step to take the Center into the ranks of advanced scientific institutions, and has already contributed to its progress and put it on the map of the leading space centers in the world.

Amer Al Sayegh, KhalifaSat project manager, did not deny the high-pressure environment in space tech engineering. But he said his team managed to exceed expectations.

4173220115633500″Usually the launch is a very tense moment but our team is now experienced because we have had two previous missions to space and this is our third one. Yes, the KhalifaSat launch is unique. It has its own expectations, but the team is quite experienced and able to handle such missions,” Al Sayegh told Gulf News.

“We are very proud of this team because they have been working on satellites for eight years now and they will continue to do so with KhalifaSat now in space. This is a team which is young but well-equipped with knowledge and experience.”
Mohammed bin Rashid space center used all social media to let the people to know about khalifasat not only that they use traditional media as well because not all the people use the social media, some of the old people still use the traditional media such as TV, radio and newspaper.
The UAE’s first 100 per cent Emirati-made satellite, the khalifaSat, was lunched at 8:08am on October 29 from Japan.

Talking about my self, The launch was a proud moment as young emaraties and for sure for the entire country, a country that is so young and dynamic that has a passion goes beyond the skies.

This step by the emarati government made it clear to the new generations that there is nothing impossible to be achieved, you only have to set your goals, work hard on educating yourself and follow your passion step by step.

The UAE will not stop here, but know 100% emarati team that worked on KhalifaSat, is know working on bigger dream a more complicated project which is the trip to the mars.

KhalifaSat is the start point for the UAE to provide giocraphical services to the world, as high resolution image of the earth surface and monitoring the climate changes to prevent natural disasters.

These services are expected to be provided for the next 5 years, the challenge comes after this period of time, is the satalite going to be improved or is a new KhalifaSat is going to sky?
Literature published about the company/organization in different sources on the internet, books, brochure, pamphlets, journals, magazines, newspapers… etc.
4281805165544500Since the announcement of the Khalifasat project by H.H sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid AlMaktoum back in 2013, the project got the worlds attention, all media platforms were competing to get and publish the latest news about this one of a kind project that happens here in this region. What made this campaign unique, is the fact that the team working on Khalifasat is consisting entirely from young Emirati males and females, that share the same passion. The campaign for this project from my point of view, succeeded due to the pieces of information they choose to share with the media and the public, and the fact that they choose carefully high officials to announce the steps they accomplish, and what is the next step. Not only that, but also even after the launch of Khalifasat, the campaign managed to keep the audience eager by stating that that was only the beginning, and the UAE has more to offer and present when it comes to space knowledge.
Almost all the people was super excited about KhalifaSat because it’s the first Arabic sat in the world and till now it’s working very well as the Emiratis worker wanted it to work. On that day the hashtag “#?????-???” was trend on twitter and Instagram, also the live show was trind on youtube, all the people who are local or Unocal was very proud of this Emiratis group who worked very hard for more than 4 years to bulled this sat. A scientific centre specialised in space science and advanced technology contributing to the establishment of the national space sector in the uae, on firm ground, and as one of the pillars of knowledge economy.
