South Africa Launches 1st ‘made In Africa’ Satellites.

South Africa has launched its first satellite constellation developed entirely in the continent of Africa. Three locally produced nano satellites, which made up the country’s first Maritime Domain Awareness Satellite (MDASat) constellation, were launched from Cape Canaveral in the United States, as part of American aerospace company SpaceX’s Transporter-3 mission.

Transporter-3, SpaceX’s third dedicated ride share mission, carried a total of 105 spacecraft for various organisations and governments, including CubeSats, microsats, PocketQubes and orbital transfer vehicles.
