New Pakistani satellite to launched into space on May 30


Pakistan will initiate the launch of a new satellite PAKSAT MM-1 later this week, which is expected to transform communication within the nation and address the escalating requirements of the country in the extensive domain of connectivity.
The launch of the PAKSAT MM-1 from Xichang Satellite Launch Center (XSLC), China, on May 30 by the Pakistan Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (Suparco) is viewed as a monumental stride toward a digitally interconnected Pakistan.
The launch ceremony will be broadcast live from the Islamabad and Karachi facilities of Suparco.
“The satellite is projected to aid in the creation of an advanced communication network and assist in satisfying the rising needs of the telecom sector,” Suparco mentioned.
“Its cutting-edge features will meet the growing demand for high-speed internet and uninterrupted connectivity. This high-power multi-mission satellite will offer communication services in C, Ku, Ka Bands and SBAS services in L Band,” it added.
“It will be a pivotal step in transforming the country into a Digital Pakistan. It will provide a range of communication services such as broadband internet, TV broadcasting, mobile banking, and VSAT connectivity.”
Project Manager MM-1, SUPARCO, Dr. Usman Iftikhar, stated that the PAKSAT MM-1 is a communication satellite destined for Geostationary Orbit at an altitude of approximately 36,000 kilometers from Earth.
The launch succeeds the significant ICUBE-Q launch on May 3 on board China’s Chang’E6 mission.
