Three Nigerian satellite – NigeriaSat-1, NigComSat-1, and EduSat-1, are no longer in orbit, based on findings from Space in Africa which generates authoritative company and market analysis reports for its African American Space and Satellite Industry sections.
Space in Africa reported that just NigComSat-1R, a communications satellite, NigeriaSat-2 and NigeriaSat-X, an Earth observation satellite, remain busy.
The report”Replacing Nigerian Satellite Gone Past Design Life; The Journey So Much” written by Mustapha Iderawumi, stated that”Nigeria’s first satellite, NigeriaSat-1, premiered on September 27, 2003, and on August 17, 2011, a replacement; NigeriaSat-2, the most effective imaging spacecraft ever sent into orbit, has been started.”
The report went to the state an equal satellite, NigeriaSat-X, was co-launched with NigeriaSat-2 in the Yasny army base in Russia
On May 13, 2007, the nation’s and Africa’s first communications satellite, NigComsat-1, has been started at an overall cost of $300 million.
It de-orbited on November 11, 2008, and also a replacement, NigComsat-1R, premiered on December 19, 2011.
The price of the satellites was $48.4 million, including launching and insurance. NigeriaSat-1, a satellite constructed exclusively from the Federal University of Technology Akure, cost the nation $13 million.
The two NigeriaSat-2 and NigeriaSat-X have a design life of seven decades.
In 2014, six years later it’s outlived its design life, NigeriaSat-1 was decommissioned by scientists and engineers from the National Space Research and Development Agency, NASRDA, burning in a controlled re-entry to the planet’s atmosphere.
Nigeria’s EduSat-1 premiered on 3 June 2017. The whole cost of this project, including launch and building, was 500,000.
That leaves three active satellites: NigComSat-1R, a communications satellite, NigeriaSat-2 and NigeriaSat-X, an Earth observation satellite.
The design life of NigeriaSat-2 and NigeriaSat-X finished in 2018, even though they’re still in orbit and functioning, but not advocated. The design life of NigComSat-1R will finish in 2025.
Nigeria intends for NigeriaSat-3 and NigeriaSAR-1 to substitute both Earth monitoring satellites, NigeriaSat-2 and NigeriaSat-X, which have outlived their design lives
