DubaiSat-1, the UAE's first satellite, has transmitted its first images from orbit, including a snapshot of the Palm Jebel Ali.

The Emirates Institution for Advanced Science & Technology (EIAST) received the images on Sunday and Ahmed Al Mansoori, director general of EIAST, said the successful images were an indication of the satellite's capabilities.

"These quality images of relevant phenomena such as the Palm Jebel Ali are the first fruits of DubaiSat-1. After processing and analysis, the satellite's images will provide information and data that serve the UAE's development and assist in decision-making. EIAST will work with various government authorities and establishments to deliver the needed imaging," he said.

The delivery of the images from the orbiting satellite confirmed the safety and efficiency of DubaiSat-1's operational processes, Al Mansoori added.
