SatRev estimates it is getting closer to signing a historic agreement to co-create the Zambia Space Program, the company said.

“Today I had the honor of having another conversation with the President of Zambia - Hakdeinde Hichilema, about the development of the space industry and co-creation of the first Space Program. The efforts of the Zambian government are aimed at fueling the country's socio-economic development through foreign investment, supporting research and sectoral innovation. It is an honor for us to be part of a new chapter in the history of this South African country, ”said president Grzegorz Zwoliński, quoted in the press release.

As part of the Zambia Space Program, the company will be able to design, manufacture and launch a constellation of nanosatellites aboard the Virgin Orbit rocket. The aim of this project will be, inter alia, to conduct scientific research and imaging the Earth's surface. All collected data and images from missions in low Earth orbit will be further digitally analyzed using solutions in the field of computer vision, machine learning and AI (artificial intelligence). Thanks to the use of the most modern technologies, it will be possible, for example, to detect invisible patterns, identify trends and predict threats caused, among others, by by climate change or natural disasters, as well as the observation of the impact of human activities, explained.
