Pakistan Technology Evaluation Satellite (PakTES-1A) is a fully indigenous project of the scientists and engineers of Pakistan Space (Sparco) from concept to completion.
This is not the first and only milestone achieved by Pakistan. In March, Pakistan had achieved a milestone in space technology by securing geostationary orbital slot with previous frequency resources confirming the ever-expanding foothold in the extraterrestrial world.
The Suparco has also collaborated with China Great Wall Industry Cooperation (CGWIC) to acquire communication satellite PakSat Multi Satellite (PakSat-MM1).
