Singapore aims for the stars with local satellites

Published on : 14-Feb-2014


Singapore could have seven locally designed and built satellites in the earth's orbit by next year. NTU had launched the first two made-in-Singapore satellites in 2011 and last year, the former in partnership with DSO National Laboratories. NTU's 130kg tropical weather monitoring satellite, the Velox-CI, funded by the Economic Development Board, will be complete by September.
