Oman-based International Emerging Technology Company (ETCO) has said that the first Omani satellite, ‘Aman’, was successfully prepared for its launch into Low Earth Orbit, at Newquay, Cornwall, in the UK.

According to the state-owned Omani News Agency, the satellite is integrated into the launch rocket ‘LauncherOne’ and will be taken on its journey into space later in 2022.

Satellite integration is a significant step in meeting the objectives of Oman’s first space mission.

Abdulaziz Jaafar, CEO of ECTO, said that satellite integration was an important step in sending the first Omani spacecraft into space in 2022.

Oman’s space programme will enable scientific research and capture high-resolution satellite images.
