Oman will launch its first space satellite in 2024, as part of its efforts to join the club of spacefaring nations, Dr Said Hamoud Al Mawali, Minister of Transport, Communications and Information Technology said.

Speaking ahead of the country’s 50th National Day, the minister said Oman’s plans to go to space actually began in 2006.

“We have to address the role of the private sector to this effect, and establish a company to launch the first satellite in 2024,” he said.

“There are practical advantage for our national space programme, advanced technology, and artificial intelligence.”

The minister said the Sultanate’s space programme is a key indicator for his ministry, and will be announced in 2021.
