    Satellites are a bit too complex for us to design at this moment.

    It means post script...something you write after a piece of writing.

    Those are quite broad terms, but I guess Pakistan's first SLV will be aimed at delivering a 500 kg payload to LEO.

    Pakistan Remote Sensing Satellite (PRSS-1)

    Towards late 1990s, SUPARCO planned an Earth Observation Satellite System (EOSS), which by 2006/7 was reconfigured and renamed as Remote Sensing Satellite System (RSSS), comprising of two remote sensing satellites, one carrying an electro-optical payload and the other a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR).

    The PRSS-1 project is currently under the process of approval from the Government of Pakistan. The planned satellite will carry a high-resolution electro-optical payload with designed service life of 05 years. The satellite is envisaged to be designed, developed and launched in a low Earth orbit by 2015/16, through cooperation/ collaboration with reputed international satellite manufacturers.

    According to SUPARCO's Chairman Dr Ahmad Bilal, PRSS-1 will be launched around end of 2016 or beginning of 2017 along with 2 other satellites designed by SUPARCO. From 2017 onwards, Pakistan should have a minimum of at least 2 satellites in space at any one time.

    SUPARCO should be given its right place when it comes to funding as in future they will be very helpful in assisting civilian and military projects.

    Pakistan should welcome investment from all of the Muslim countries and especially from Middle East to form a Global Position System having 30 Fixed Satellites also Communication Global System which would also be consisting of 30 Satellites with Stations all over the world.

    The delay is financial as far as i have known, Government is putting electricity situation, economic development, and other spending on priority so the satellite will have to wait. Something similar to the Submarines and fighter jet procurements.
    The dilemma is they are putting under passes and over head bridges metro buses even higher then electricity and other issues in there priority list :P
    Also there might well be a military operation looming on the horizon against the Taliban after not so fruitful peace negotiations and that will also be a big spending, and bet you, Saudia is not going to sponsor any operation against Taliban :)

    As far as i have come to know, the planned launch of 2014 is delayed to somewhere around 2016
