With high-resolution satellite imagery, MBZ-SAT will play a key role in supporting the Emirati space sector.
UAE Space Projects
Emirates Mars Mission and MAVEN have finalised plans to facilitate data exchange to maximise the scientific return from Mars missions.
The Solar Conjunction Phase took place during the data collection period.
Three visible wavelengths and two ultraviolet wavelengths are captured by the EXI camera system - providing a multispectral weather satellite view of Mars.
After a few months in orbit, the mission began its science observations, which are focused on the atmosphere and climate of Mars.
The data will help scientists, researchers, and space enthusiasts better understand the phenomena and interactions on the atmosphere of the Red Planet.
Light-1 will measure TGFs and their potency, as well as determine how they are generated and how long they last.
The training is part of the Reimbursable Space Act Agreement NASA has previously signed with MBRSC.
