Airbus Defence and Space, which has helped Kazakhstan with land remote sensing satellites of high and medium resolution, sees the country as a growth market for its Telecommunications and Earth observation (EO) satellites.
Two EO satellites, KazEOSat-1 and KazEOSat-2, provided by Airbus, were successfully launched in 2014 and are operated by the Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary (KGS).
Airbus Defence and Space has continuously been a reliable partner to the Kazakh space companies in the last decade.
“Ghalam”, a joint venture between Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary (KGS) and Airbus Defence and Space, is one of the success stories underlining Airbus’ commitment to skills development, research and technology focused projects and initiatives in the country, thus contributing to the growth of the Kazakh industry. Launched in 2010 in Astana, “Ghalam” is piloting world-class facilities for satellite design, integration and tests.
With the two joint ventures based in Astana, and all its divisions involved in the country, Airbus has been a long- term strategic partner to the Kazakh aerospace industry for nearly 10 years. Airbus and its suppliers are involved in multiple cooperation projects with Kazakhstan.
