Egypt: Egypt is planning to come up with a new earth observation satellite EgyptSat-2 (MisrSat-2) by the end of 2013.

The satellite is jointly built by the National Authority for Remote Sensing & Space Sciences and RKK Energiya in Russia. The satellite will be aimed at capturing high-resolution images of the earth. In 2011, Egyptian National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences (NARSS) had indefinitely postponed the launch of EgyptSat-2.
