Satellites provide critical infrastructure for data communication for essential civilian and military applications. In the Middle East and Africa, space capabilities can promote socio-economic development. In Africa over the past decade, about 30 space organizations have been established and more than 40 satellites have been launched. In the Middle-East, investment in space technology and capabilities has been one of the routes towards economic diversification.
