Chairman Speech :- The National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences (NARSS) is one of the valuable governmental research institutes under the umbrella of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research; which is mandated to promote research, development, and innovative studies that serve and support the government in all domains of sustainable development. NARSS is playing critical role on regional and global arena in space science and technology and remote sensing application to serve the community. This is, indeed, completely aligned with Egypt’s vision 2030 and Global SDGs and in accordance to the national strategy of higher education, scientific research and innovation.
the Egyptian Academy of Scientific Research and Technology
Egyptian institution in the field of satellite remote sensing courses.
NARSS is looking forward to become one of the advanced scientific agencies in conducting research and providing services in field of remote sensing and space sciences.

The project aims at integration of both TDI photosensor, TMA optical design with ultrahigh scale processing logic (FPGA) to produce space qualified miniaturized camera system achieving high resolution with low weight and less dimensions. Based on outcomes from previous STDF granted project “Space qualified camera computer,(2013-2015)” the photosensor is integrated on board the device, allowing more integrity ,less dominions , low weight and more compactness in the system. The optical system is designed and Manufacturing of optical system is carried out in Egypt. The product is one channel space qualified satellite panchromatic camera system based on state of the art technology in optics, electronics, and image processing techniques; a spin-off of this activity is design documentations, sources codes of embedded algorithms, check and test equipment and hardware circuit diagrams. .Read more
The main scope of the project is to develop series of Pico-satellite using national capabilities for the purpose of technology demonstration. The alliance has a broad scope of work as follows: • To leverage the knowledge in the field of satellite technology. • To create a sustainable linkage between space research entities and industry. • To engage the private sector in space based services chain development. • To enhance the Egyptian industry level meeting the space standards. • Knowledge sharing and information dissemination of space know-how in universities and research institutes. Two satellites have been developed and launched in orbit. .Read more
