About MBRSC

Intro

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre, founded in 2006, is home to the UAE National Space Programme.  The Centre builds and operates earth observation satellites, offering imaging and data analysis services to clients around the world. The Centre launched DubaiSat-1, DubaiSat-2, and recently launched KhalifaSat on 29  October  2018  from  Tanegashima  Space Center in Japan.  KhalifaSat was developed  100% in the UAE  by  a team of highly qualified Emirati engineers.

The Centre is responsible for the development of the Emirates Mars Mission and the Mars  Hope  Probe,  a  mission  to  reach  Mars  orbit  by  2021  and  gather  key  science  data  about Mars’ atmosphere, as well as the UAE Astronaut Programme, which saw the launch of Hazzaa AlMansoori,  first  Emirati  Astronaut,  to  the  International  Space  Station  on  a  scientific  mission on 25th September 2019, and the development of the Mars 2117 vision to build a human colony on Mars.
