Good stuff, for sure. And some of these laboratories and experimental agencies will eventually be brought into the private sector as time goes by. Baby steps in the early stages although this really isn't something super new. They've been working on these satellite cameras and other "on-board functional equipment" for about 8 years now, believe it or not because they were anticipating the introduction and eventual put in orbit of Egyptian satellites and they wanted to get a head start on this stuff. So yeah, pretty impressive and actually, there were a few programs out of Cairo University back in Mubarak's time (believe it or not) but it was very difficult to get funding and equipment etc. that it never took off. Once Sisi came on board and he told the country he's most interested in expanding Egypt's technological capabilities and that he would do whatever it took to help in that endeavor, those who had worked on these project jumped at the opportunity and he kept his word because here they are. And again, another side of Sisi that the blind, dictatorial narrative-pushing jerks either don't see, don't want to see, avoid seeing and never consider or credit him. But we do.@Gomig-21@The SC
I found something interesting talking to philip on Instagram, egypt developed subsystem for satellite which is the camera. Philip and I went over this and it seems very promising for the egyptian industry. It specifications are similar to the one used in in the uae khalifaSat. It may be useful for egyptian, african, and arab satellite programs.
Designing and manufacturing a multi-purpose camera, with an imaging resolution of 2.5 meters, up to 800 kilometers, indicating that large cameras weighing more than 20 kilometers are installed on the big satellites.

Ah, ok. Just Sisi then. I got you. Hey if you ever see any pics of the Bangldesh Navy in those RIBs, do show us please. It would be great to see them in action.
