QCOSTA RICA TECH NEWS – This year will be crucial for the project that aims to put the first Costa Rican satellite in to orbit, a project driven by the Asociación Centroamericana de Aeronaútica y del Espacio (Acae) and the Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica (TEC).

The project is two years in the making, taking root during the Chinchilla Miranda administration (2010-2014) declaring it a public interest. The Acae says that the project is currently 40% complete.

“We completed the design phase and are ready to begin with the early stages of assembly of the device, expected by the end of the year (…),” said Carlos Alvardao, executive director of the Acae.

The “picosatellite” is aimed at broadcasting daily information of measurements by sensors from the forests, such as concentrations of CO2, humidity and thickness of trees in areas of interest.

By mid-year the plan is to complete the SRR (System Required Review), a critical document that establishes the space needs and expectations of the system.  In the second half of the year the project is expected to close negotiations with suppliers (who are abroad) and advance negotiations for the test phase, as there is interest in sending the satellite to a Japanese university for the testing stage.
