Qatar’s First Satellite Engineers Graduate

Four young engineers today became the first to complete Es’hailSat’s intensive satellite training program managed by Space Systems Loral in Palo Alto, California.

Es’hailSat is investing in local talent and providing training for Qatar’s first generation of satellite operator engineers. 

The prestigious satellite training program was set up to develop knowledgeable and sophisticated engineering staff to specify, oversee the manufacture of, launch and operate commercial communication satellites and will assist Qatar in the development of its own space capabilities. 

We want to ensure that we nurture and grow the satellite industry within Qatar itself so that we have a solid foundation in satellite technology now and in the future.
