Partnerships boost UAE's space ambitions
26 April 2019
The UAE space programme is striking partnerships with established space players as it seeks to turn its space dreams of Mars exploration and human spaceflight into reality.
One key actor is French space agency CNES, which was the first to sign a cooperation deal with the UAESA in April 2015, and it has since opened a space office in Abu Dhabi. Companies in France are working on new Emirati satellites, and the two countries are developing a joint hyperspectral imaging satellite for Earth observation.
