Sudan launches a satellite for military purposes

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates:-- Despite the political conditions in Sudan, after the fall of the regime of Omar when Bashir, the President of the Sudanese Transitional Council of sovereignty, Lieutenant General Abdul Fattah al-Burhan, announced the launch of the first satellite, with the help of China, to develop its military, economic and space knowledge.

"The Sudanese satellite aims at developing research in the field of space, owning a database and acquiring special knowledge and space science to discover natural resources and serve the military aspects of the country."

Sudan will take over the satellite within months, while Khartoum plans to launch a newer version within two years.

Although this is the first satellite ever launched by Sudan, this country is mired in a severe financial and economic crisis for decades that has a space program.

The program includes activities such as remote sensing and GPS in a sprawling country with an increasing interest in satellite development.
