Astrium to Build 2 Satellites for Kazkhstan

Astrium (EADS) and JSC NC Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary (KGS), the company in charge of the development of Kazakhstans space programme have signed a contract for two Earth observation satellites and documents to create a joint venture. The two agreements were signed during the State visit of the French President, Mr Sarkozy, to the Republic of Kazakhstanlast week

Astrium will provide a space system with two Earth observation satellites, one of high resolution with a ground resolution of 1m, the other medium resolution with a ground resolution of 7m and a wide coverage swath. The high resolution satellite will be entirely provided by Astrium in France and will be based on the already well known platform of THEOS and Formosat-2; the medium resolution satellite is also remarkable as it is the result of the collaboration between Astrium and its subsidiary SSTL in the UK: under this contract, SSTL will provide the satellite based on the SSTL 150 platform. Furthermore, Astrium will provide the associated ground segment and train Kazakh engineers.

Astrium and KGS have agreed to set up a Joint Venture in Kazakhstan to build an assembly, integration and test facility in Astana, to jointly manage it and implement Kazakhstans space programme.
