Welcome to the SGAC Angola.
We a pleased to have you here.
This is the best place to inform yourself about space activities in Angola and participate in the development of this country's space sector. Space activities in Angola started in the 70’s with the installation of a 32 meters diameter antenna, in 2009 Angola began taking the first concrete steps towards becoming a space-faring nation with a space program thought signing a Contract for the Construction, Launch, and Placement in Orbit of the ANGOSAT-1 Satellite, and in 2013 the Management Office of the National Space Program is created to manage all projects of the space program.
The Angolan Space program so far achieved several milestones such as the successful launch of two satellites Angosat-1 (with one in-orbit failure) and Angosat-2, the construction of a Satellite Mission Control Center (MCC) that can operate three satellites simultaneously, and the training of more than 50 Angolan specialists in Space Science and Technology. The space activity in Angola is governed by the Angolan Spatial Strategy 2016-2025, which establishes the goals and general guidelines.
