The first Mauritian nano-satellite has reached the launching site at Kennedy Space Centre in Florida and its transportation towards the International Space Station would be effected on 4 June 2021, Defi Media reported.

The eventual deployment of the satellite into space has not yet been defined. But once the deployment is successfully effected and has started orbiting the earth, the Ground Station set up at the Mauritius Research and Innovation Council would be able to get into contact with it about 4 to 5 times a day.

The Mauritian Satellite is the heralded by the Mauritian Government as being a stepping stone for Mauritius to have its own geostationary satellite which could provide “significant data for the country surveillance and sustainable exploitation of the Exclusive Economic Zone of Mauritius.”
