Welcome to the SGAC South Africa (SA) homepage.
Having been involved in the space sector since the early 1960’s, SA has a rich legacy of participation in space activities, and has, as of 2020, launched 6 locally built satellites. In addition to a thriving local industry, SA also has a space agency, the South African National Space Agency (SANSA), and is home to several noteworthy facilities spanning ground segment & operations, expansive satellite and sub-system AIT facilities, and a space weather centre to name but a few. There are also numerous academic institutions such as Stellenbosch University, Cape Town University, and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, who offer specialized space engineering & policy related courses. As such, SA remains a hub for space education and industry on the African continent.
