We have multiple teams of scientists and engineers giving insightful research in space science
Our mission is coordinating, nurturing and developing the Kenyan Space Sector to maximise the utilization of space opportunities. Our 6 major areas of focus include:
Kenyan Scientists use space technology in conjunction with agriculture to discover how to control and ensure healthy crop growth.
Satellites can be used to provide critical information to make predictions such as earthquake, locust migrations etc...
Satellite communication and imagery has been proven to be be an effective method to track security threats.
Television, radio, telephones, internet pick up signals via communication satellites.
Urban developers use Satellite imaging to closely monitor and support decision making for sustainable urban planning.
Satellites generate multiple forms of data for private use and also for the general public.
