The Polish Space Agency (POLSA) is currently consulting on its draft National Space Program under which it aims to spend close to 1.43 billion Polish zloty ($420 million) over an eight-year period. Senior agency officials say the program will allow them to team up Polish space industry players with foreign partners to develop two new satellites and acquire developed technologies.

Under the plan, the funds are to be allocated to support the development of an astronomical observation satellite, a SAR micro-satellite, and a number of other R&D projects in Poland's space sector, among others, according to the agency.
