At the forefront of this ambitious project is the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (Suparco), whose goal is to provide dependable internet services throughout Pakistan. This dream is about to come true with the launch of Paksat MM1, which will greatly strengthen the nation’s digital infrastructure.

With Paksat MM1, communication capabilities will be greatly improved and internet coverage will be available to a large area. This development is especially important for underserved and remote areas where there hasn’t been much or no internet access. Suparco hopes to promote greater socio-economic development and digital inclusion by bridging this digital divide.

Pakistan had declared on May 11 that it would be launching a new satellite into space after the iCube Qamar satellite was successfully deployed.

According to a representative of the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (Suparco), the MM1 was supposed to launch on May 30. The launch is scheduled to occur from Islamabad, according to the national space agency.

The MM1 satellite was designed primarily to support Pakistan’s communication network. It was expected that the satellite would help build an advanced communication network and could be able to accommodate the telecom industry’s expanding needs.

Given the rapid rise in internet usage and the impending introduction of 5G technology, the MM1 satellite has the potential to improve the availability and dependability of these services throughout the nation. It is anticipated that the satellite’s sophisticated features will meet the growing need for dependable connectivity and high-speed internet.

Launching its maiden mission to the moon on May 3, Pakistan joined the global space race for research. From China’s Hainan Space Site, the mission was launched with assistance from China. The Institute of Space Technology (IST) in Islamabad’s Electrical Engineering Department created the satellite in two years, with a weight of approximately 7 kg.
