First signals transmitted by the Dewa satellite



First time the nanosatellite Dewasat-1 has sent a signal from space

This is the first time the nanosatellite Dewasat-1 has sent a signal from space. The satellite launched by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority on a SpaceX rocket.

On Thursday has reached a low orbit of between 525 and 530 kilometers above earth.

Taking roughly 90 minutes to orbit the globe, the satellite travels at a speed of 7.5km per second. The Dubai nanosatellite will enable Dewa to expand its utility.

To reach through the launch of nanosats that support a primary satellite.

Increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of our production, distribution, transmission, and charging stations divisions, as well as our smart grids, will be possible thanks to this.”

The satellite technology could prove useful to utility companies as it allows them to map.

Moreover, Monitor their infrastructures and determine the effects of their operations on the environment. This information may also be useful for improving their services.

Dewasat-1 is the first of many satellites

Dewasat-1 is the first of many satellites that Dewa will launch over the coming years. Including satellites to boost the performance of photovoltaic solar panels at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the largest solar park in the world.

As part of the Space-D program, Dewa will use nanosatellite technology in addition to its terrestrial wireless network. To improve communications and enable the digitalisation of its electrical and water networks, said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, chief executive of Dewa.

Among the features of the project are the use of multispectral. High-resolution thermal imaging devices, such as those found on spacecraft, to collect and analyze data.

However, These devices are particularly suitable for use in electricity and water networks and will be deployed to detect thermal fingerprints in high voltage transmission lines.”
