The launch of the DMSAT-1 nanometer satellite from the Baikonur space port in the Republic of Kazakhstan has been delayed until Sunday, due to weather conditions.

This comes after the launch of the “Soyuz” missile, with 38 satellites on board, including satellites for Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Tunisia was postponed.

The nanometer satellite DMSAT-1 was supposed to launch on Saturday at 10 am UAE time from the Baikonur space port in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The satellite aims to employ space technology and artificial intelligence techniques to enhance the environmental monitoring system at the level of the UAE, in addition to monitoring the concentrations of suspended particles in dust “10 PM-2.

5PM” and monitoring the concentrations of gases that cause the phenomenon of climate change “carbon dioxide, methane and water vapor.

” Adnan Al-Rayyes said that the beginning of the project was in 2016, by setting up the special needs of Dubai Municipality to study the air through satellites and in contracting with the University of Toronto to build the moon.

The satellite is characterized by its small size, as the weight of the nanometer satellite DMSAT-1 is about 15 km.

It will capture 40m images through 3 multi-spectral ranges, rotating 14 revolutions around the earth per day at an altitude of 550 km from the surface of the earth.

The center’s team will control the moon and manage all its operations and provide Dubai Municipality with all images and data after analyzing and processing them
