an ecosystem for young budding scientists and technologists to learn about GIS and work on major projects using geospatial technologies to solve problems in environmental and disaster monitoring, civil planning, agriculture, forestry, earth resources, land surface composition for agriculture and mineral characterization, vegetation types for ecosystem health, cartography, land use, urban management, water management, risk management and security.
We incubate start- ups across Africa capitalizing on space technologies to solve societal problems in Africa. We provide startups with the resources and support they need to grow their aerospace businesses into sustainable companies that employ people and solve local problems. 80% of the problems Africa face could be addressed with better information — and space adds an important dimension to this.
Space in Africa
The premier source of space related news in Africa. We travel across the continent to document milestones, discoveries and events in the African Space Industry. From interviews and events, to policies and discoveries, to milestones and amazing projects, to new space start ups and breaking news of missions and satellites projects, at Space in Africa; you’ll find something amazing every day.
XinaBox Space Program
XinaBox Space programme introduces skills and technology used in industry and research while helping in designing and launching student satellites into orbit. Using commercial standard electronics components, students are able to design and build circuits, code using multiple formats and conduct experiments - This three-phase programme empowers youngsters to design, build and launch their satellites into space. The students will engage with their XinaBox components to build their EnviroSats to study the weather and environment at ground level and in the Troposphere. XinaBox program is distributed and implemented by Ideal Space Technologies Limited across Africa.
