ANGKASA-X has announced that it will provide complimentary access to its A-SEANSAT-PG1 satellite data for R&D satellite applications and research purposes to all Malaysian government agencies, universities, and companies.
After a successful launch on 27th June 27, the PG1 satellite was placed into the designated orbit and has been sending signals back to Earth ground stations successfully. With that, ANGKASA-X’s engineers can control and monitor the satellite’s health during its orbit, continuously capturing information and sending it to their command center.
Having achieved this significant milestone, the company offers both public and private Malaysian organizations free access to a variety of Earth Observation (EO) and Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) applications for 12 months starting from July 2023.
ANGKASA-X’s Earth Observation (EO) applications will bring a wide array of uses like Agriculture Monitoring & Management, Land Usage Mapping, Maritime Mapping & Monitoring, Border & Area Monitoring, Disaster Assistance Monitoring, Forestry Mapping & Monitoring, and Mineral Mining Monitoring.
On the other hand, the Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) applications includes Maritime Domain Awareness, Vessel Tracking & Identification, Port Traffic Management, Search & Rescue Assistance, and also monitoring of illegal fishing and unauthorized encroachment into restricted sea areas.
That being said, this project marks a vital milestone in ANGKASA-X’s endeavor to deploy a constellation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites in the near future, which will be developed and assembled in Malaysia, solidifying the nation’s role as a significant player in the global space industry and the space tech ecosystem.
