Taiwan's Formosat-8 Satellite Set for Launch by 2025
Posted on 2024-04-11 18:14:13
The Taiwan Space Agency has announced progress on the Formosat-8 project, a
high-resolution optical remote sensing satellite currently in integration
testing, with a launch anticipated by the end of 2025.

Aimed at enhancing Taiwan's capabilities in space, the project seeks to
achieve over 80-percent self-manufacture rate, with specific metrics to be
determined after testing.

This initiative was highlighted during a legislative session focused on
national science and technology development.

In response to recent seismic activities, TASA also demonstrated the
practical applications of satellite technology in disaster assessment and
relief efforts.

Amidst geopolitical considerations, Taiwan is advancing its space technology
and international collaborations, maintaining a strategic presence in the
global space science and industry sectors, with a keen eye on China's absence
from key international space symposiums.
