Satellite development is a highly sophisticated field which not only requires state of the art facilities but also highly, specialized technological human resource. Through the successful development, launch, and in-orbit operations of a variety of satellites, Pakistan has joined the league of a well-established space faring nation.
Initially, two experimental satellites, Badr-1 and Badr-B were launched which marked a successful footprint of Pakistan in space. Now, Pakistan holds a fleet of earth observation, remote sensing, and communication satellites, making Pakistan self-reliant in communication and high resolution imaging while providing a wide range of different services to the nation and valuable scientific data to global science communities.
The satellite program and space utilization capabilities of Pakistan shall further strengthen with the upcoming design, development and launch of advanced communication and navigation satellites.
