Muscat: In its first space mission, Satellite Aman-1, owned by ETCO Space company, relayed images of the Sultanate of Oman captured from low altitude on the earth’s orbit. The mission focuses on ground observation and remote sensing.


The first image shows the Port of Sohar and parts of Sohar freezone, while the second image monitors a large section of Al Hajar Al Gharbi mountain range along the Wilayat of Ibri.


ETCO Space, an Oman-owned company, said in a statement that the image signals the consummation of operations since the moment Aman-1 was shuttled into the earth’s orbit. It also signifies the readiness of the downstream section to receive space images and process with high efficiency, the company added.
