IM­AGES WILL BE FREE FOR HU­MAN­I­TAR­IAN PUR­POSES, SAYS KHAL­I­FASAT MAN­AGER

Khaleej Times - - NATION -

The UAE’s com­mer­cial space in­dus­try will also be pos­i­tively im­pacted by the launch of this satel­lite.

Amer Al Sayegh, di­rec­tor of the space sys­tems de­vel­op­ment depart­ment and the project man­ager of Khal­i­faSat at the MBRSC, had told Khaleej Times last month that the Mo­hammed bin Rashid Space Cen­tre (MBRSC) will pro­vide free im­ages from the satel­lite to the UAE govern­ment as well as to coun­tries who need them for hu­man­i­tar­ian rea­sons, specif­i­cally nat­u­ral dis­as­ters.

How­ever, if com­pa­nies or gov­ern­ments need them for com­mer­cial pur­poses, it will cost them to use im­ages cap­tured by Khal­i­faSat.
