The Pakistan Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO) will launch the country’s first remote-sensing satellite in March, 2018. Known as the Remote Sensing Satellite System (RSSS), the Pakistan Remote Sensing Satellite (PRS) is a dual-purpose earth observational and optical satellite that will replace Badr-II. PRS will be primarily used for environmental monitoring, hazard warning and natural resource surveying. Efforts are being made to utilise space technology in various sectors, such as education, infrastructure development, communication, and agriculture. Currently, space technology is used by Pakistan in the planning and implementation of ChinaPakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects.
