Primarily educational misison with Earth observation and IoT payloads.
Following a partnership signed with the University of Montpellier, ten Djiboutian students were sent for training to acquire the knowledge and know-how of space systems. After graduating, the students joined the University of Montpellier Space Center (CSUM) to design a 1U Cubesat Space Mission.
Phase O and A were run from March to July 2021. Then, an engineering model of DJIBOUTI-1A, a 1U type nanosatellite was assembled, based on the CSUM 1U platform and a payload developed by Expleo group. The project is currently in phase C/D, flight model being expected very soon. As for the Mission Control Center in Djibouti, it is already operational.
Earth observation nanosatellite, will help the country access country-wide, real-time data from climatological and seismic stations.
Real-time transmission of data from stations spread over the entire territory such as climatological and seismic stations in particular.
Expleo is developing the payload of a nanosatellite to collect data from local climatological stations spread across the territory, such as temperature, rainfall, river depth and hydrometry across the country. With the new nanosatellite, Djibouti can better track environmental changes across the country.
