In the short video clip, Mohammed AlSahool, head of MBRSC’s Mechanical Manufacturing Unit, explained how engineers – all donning PPEs (personal protective equipment) and face masks – are inspecting the mechanical parts using the Faro Arm machine to make sure that they meet standards and specifications. “This step helps us to begin assembly on the mechanical structure of the satellite,” he added.
Faro Arm is a measuring machine that allows easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool certifications, CAD (computer-aided design) comparison, dimensional analysis, reverse engineering and more.
Most advanced commercial satellite
According to MBRSC, MBZ-SAT will become the most advanced commercial satellite in the region in the field of high-resolution satellite imagery. It will be equipped with an automated system for arranging images round-the-clock. MBZ-SAT will provide high-resolution satellite images that will show details within an area of less than one square metre.
Last month, MBRSC signed an agreement with UAE-based aero structures manufacturing company Strata to manufacture and supply the components of MBZ-SAT. The agreement is part of MBRSC’s collaboration with local companies within the space sector to build a local hub for space-related manufacturers. The strategic cooperation also enhances the sustainability of the national space sector in the UAE, according to MBRSC.
