    Default Nigeria SAT 1


    Nigeriasat-1 is real,not a political scam.although many may argue as per the priority and the timing,I think in the long run with right attention,it will prove to be indispensable and a big Plus for the country.

    NIGERIASAT 1 In brief
    (With lot of pictures,since a picture can speak thousand words)
    The Satelite



    The Satellite’s ground control station is and is controlled by 15 Nigerian Engineers in Abuja (trained in Surrey, Inited Kingdom). The operation is supervised by NASDRA, the National Space Research and Development Agency.

    The satellite is part of the world-wide Disaster Monitoring Constellation System. Images of the country obtained from the satellite are beamed back to the control station for use by the Government.

    The Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC) is the first earth observation constellation of 5 low cost small satellites providing daily images for applications including global disaster monitoring.

    DMC International Imaging (DMCII) is the central marketing portal for the Disaster Monitoring Constellation Consortium, co-ordinating the international exploitation of all the data from all DMC Member satellites.

    Affordable Global Monitoring
    Daily revisit
    Multi-spectral imagery (Landsat-ETM 2,3 & 4)
    Very Wide Swath (600km+)
    32m GSD Resolution

    Novel International Partnership

    The Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC) is a novel international co-operation in space, led by SSTL bringing together organisations from seven countries: Algeria, China, Nigeria, Thailand, Turkey, the United Kingdom and Vietnam. The DMC Consortium is forming the first-ever microsatellite constellation bringing remarkable Earth observation capabilities both nationally to the individual satellite owners, and internationally to benefit world-wide humanitarian aid efforts.

    It is through the co-operation of an international consortium that the DMC is possible. Each partner owns an independent small satellite mission that services national needs.

    By sharing space and ground assets membership of the DMC consortium confers the unique benefit of access to a seamless global monitoring service.
    Space Partners: Algeria, Nigeria, UK, China,Vietnam,Thailand
    Associate Partners: Turkey



    NigeriaSat 1 co-exist with STSAT 1, Bilsat 1, UK-DMC 1, Mozhayets 4, Larets, Rubin 4-DSI


    Further DMC missions:



    NigeriaSat-1 has 3 spectral bands namely; Green: 0.52-0.62µm, Red: 0.63-0.69 µm and NIR: 0.76-0.9 µm.
    It is one of the DisasterMonitoring Constellation (DMC) satellites and has a swath width of 600km and revisit cycle of 3-5 days.

    It has spectral resolution comparable to SPOT XS and spatial resolution comparable to Landsat TM.
    The camera is operated in two banks and used to produce images with approximately 32 m ground sampling distance (spatial resolution),
    across a swath width of approximately 600 x 600 km.

    Lightbulb Potential Uses of Nigcomsat.


    Potential Uses
    The Satellite’s
    ground control station is and is controlled by 15 Nigerian Engineers in Abuja (trained in Surrey, United Kingdom). The operation is supervised by NASDRA, the National Space Research and Development Agency.

    The satellite is part of the world-wide Disaster Monitoring Constellation System. Images of the country obtained from the satellite are beamed back to the control station for use by the Government.

    It can be used for the following purposes:
    · To give advance warnings of natural disasters like floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and storms.
    · To avoid or manage occurrence of man-made disasters like oil pollution, desertification, erosion, forest fire, and deforestation,
    · In agriculture, for mapping, land use planning, management of sustainable grazing, forest logging, planning afforestation programs, crop inventory and yield forecast.
    · Water resources development and management, including assessment of the quantity and quality of surface and underground water, rainfall prediction, as well as integrated water resources management on drought and other disaster forecast.
    · Solid mineral exploration and exploitation, including general geological mapping and map update or revision, as well as differentiating host mineral areas in oil, gas and solid mineral exploration.
    · Ecosystem: Evaluation and monitoring of vegetation and land use as well as the aquatic system.
    · Local and regional planning for tourism and its potentials.
    · Demographic uses such as mapping and planning of population surveys, census enumeration areas, as well as mapping, planning and monitoring of rural and urban growth.
    · Mapping of state and international boundaries, planing and mapping of terrain traffic for defence and security purposes, as well as identification and neutralization international criminals.
    · It would be used in public health delivery to establish the relationship between malaria vectors and the environment that breeds malaria, while its remote sensing technology can be used to give early warning signals on future outbreaks of meningitis.
    · To provide the technology needed to bring education to all parts of the country via distant learning.
