    Two levels of ‘mataf’ to be ready by Ramadan


    Khalid Al-Humaidi
    Okaz/Saudi Gazette

    MAKKAH — The ground and the first floors of the Grand Mosque will be opened for the tawaf (the ritual circling of the Holy Ka’aba) this Ramadan while the rooftop will be opened for the upcoming Haj season, according to Deputy President of the Two Holy Mosques’ Affairs Muhammad Al-Khazeem.

    An engineering group has been assigned by the presidency to oversee the expansion project of the Grand Mosque, which is aimed to increase the capacity of the mataf (circumambulation area), Al-Khazeem added.

    The first phase of the project will be completed 15 days before the holy month of Ramadan allowing 105,000 Muslims to perform tawaf in one hour.
    Meanwhile, the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs is conducting a study to erect 60,000 fireproof tents in Arafat.

    The study was ordered by Prince Muhammad Bin Naif, Interior Minister and Chairman of the Supreme Haj Committee. The ministry will estimate the total cost and give its recommendations.

    Habib Zainul Abideen, undersecretary at the ministry and supervisor of Development Projects Center, said the ministry started the study 10 days ago.

    Informed source estimated the total cost of the project at SR2 billion.
    Zainul Abideen expected that this grand project will be implemented in three years.

    “This project will provide pilgrims with perfect and safe housing facilities instead of the traditional cotton-made tents that catch fire easily,” he said.

    In a related development, the Ministry of Finance is considering financing four projects with total costs of SR12.6 billion. One of the projects is a tunnel connecting the western side of Al-Jamarat Bridge with the new expansion of the Grand Mosque at a cost of SR800 million.

    Quote 1 :

    Dubai to launch third satellite in space to get clear shots of UAE

    DubaiSat-3, scheduled for 2017 lift-off, will be first to be completed in UAE

    By Faisal Masudi, Staff Report
    Published: 16:09 April 23, 2013


    Dubai: Officials have revealed details of a new earth imaging satellite that will be the first satellite to be completed in the UAE.

    DubaiSat-3 is scheduled for launch in 2017 after its development is completed in Dubai by the Emirates Institution for Advanced Science and Technology (EIAST).

    The 330kg-satellite will be able to take high quality images of the UAE and other places — down to a sub-metre resolution of 70cm — from an orbit 600km above Earth.

    The pictures can be used for various purposes such as weather studies, mapping, and infrastructure planning.

    Currently, government departments have to purchase such images from non-UAE operators, said Salem Al Merri, EIAST’s assistant director general for scientific and technical affairs.

    However, DubaiSat-3 is not a commercial project, Al Merri added.

    His comments came during the project’s announcement at a Dubai press conference attended by top EIAST officials.

    They said a team of 45 UAE experts and engineers will lead the project development from scratch to launch.

    However, initial development will take place in South Korea in collaboration with Satrec Initiative (SI), a solution provider for Earth observation missions.

    This is EIAST’s third satellite programme with SI — the earlier ones being DubaiSat-1 and DubaiSat-2 — but DubaiSat-3 will be led by Emirati engineers with SI taking a consultative role.

    DubaiSat-2 is scheduled for lift-off in 2013; DubaiSat-1 was sent into space in 2009 from Kazakhstan.

    Officials said the latest satellite will have significantly better imaging, pointing, downloading and computing capabilities, but remained light-lipped about the cost of the project.

    DubaiSat-3 will be transferred to EIAST’s satellite manufacturing facilities in Dubai’s Khawaneej area midway through the project. Once here, it will be built by an all-Emirati team.

    EIAST is to start developing its own clean room and satellite manufacturing facilities, consisting of labs that keep out dust and humidity.

    Al Merri said EIAST will study various options related to the DubaiSat-3 launch — which could include lift-off from India — based on costs, and the chosen date and orbit.

    The “eye in the sky” will have a lifetime of five years from launch.

    EIAST Chairman of the Board of Directors Hamad Al Mansouri said: “The ultimate goal of [EIAST] is to develop a core team of local experts and position UAE as a global leader in science and technology.

    “We are inspired by the passion and dedication of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who is the leading proponent of the EIAST initiative.”

    EIAST Director General Yousuf Al Shaibani added: “The DubaiSat-3 is an important project as it tests our own satellite manufacturing capabilities and ultimately gives insights to further improve future satellite development programmes.”

    There were already discussions at the press conference of a ‘DubaiSat-4,’ with Al Merri saying a possible successor “could be different, have a wider swathe or width. When you’re talking about [imaging] layers of agriculture, for example, you care more about a wide swathe, not resolution alone.”
