#PAKISTAN WILL SET-UP A SATELLITE DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION FACILITY
The Government of Pakistan announced that it will establish the Pakistan Space Centre (#PSC) to spearhead the domestic development and manufacturing of satellites.
According to a report by Pakistan’s state-owned Associated Press of Pakistan (APP), the PSC will undertake its programs “in accordance with international space standards” in the coming years.
The APP also reports that Pakistan will complete feasibility studies for two new projects:
First, a second remote-sensing satellite – i.e. Pakistan Remote Sensing Satellite 02 (PRSS-02) – with “sub-meter” resolution image capture capability.
Second, the Pakistan Navigation Satellite System (PakNav), which will provide Pakistan with “independent satellite navigation for both civilian and strategic purposes”.
