According to a report on the Jordanian Petra News Agency on November 9, the Jordanian Crown Prince Foundation (CPF) announced in a statement on November 9 that Jordan’s first satellite will enter space on November 19.
It is reported that the CubeSat (JY1-SAT) of the first satellite was designed and installed by the Jordanian youth, named after the late King Hussein, who holds the JY1 radio call sign.
The members involved in the construction of the first satellite were composed of 19 young engineering students, academic committees and advisory committee members of the University of Jordan.
The JY1-SAT satellite aims to promote Jordanian scenery by broadcasting images of tourism and sites, and to communicate wirelessly with relevant global ground stations. In addition, it will also send the audio and information of Crown Prince Hussein Abdullah to the world.
It is reported that nanosatellites have adopted CPF's MASAR (Track) program to stimulate the enthusiasm and confidence of the younger generation in space technology innovation.
