Egyptsat 1 [Yuzhnoye]
EgyptSat 1 (MisrSat 1) was Egypt's first Earth remote-sounding satellite. The satellite was jointly built by Egypt's National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences together with the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau in Ukraine.
The satellite was based on Yuzhnoye's MS-1TK platform and featured an infra-red imager, an high resolution multispectral imager and a store and forward communications payload.
EgyptSat 1 was successfully launched on board a Dnepr rocket as part of a multi-satellite payload on 17 April 2007 from Baikonur.
Contact with the satellite has been lost in July 2010.
