Space Mechatronic Engineer

Maybe, because history is now and together with you we can change its course. We are building a complete local space ecosystem for manufacturing, integrating, deploying, operating and utilizing satellites and their services in Rwanda for the rest of Africa.

Due to our know-how and experience, we are able to cover the full project cycle. We start from mission definition and analysis followed by the system development during which we perform system engineering, mechanical design, structural and thermal analysis, electrical and software development, subsystems procurement, manufacturing, integration, assembly, testing, qualification and finally provide you with launch.


We are working on Rwandan satellite with hyperspectral camera. Hyperspectral sensing offers a great synergic remote-sensing technique for agriculture, climate change, natural hazards, security or border control. Satellite will offer customized identification of spectral characteristics of a wide list of events/cases and their algorithmized detection from satellites.

Project is led by TRL Space Rwanda with cooperation with local ecosystem, industrial partners, universities, Rwanda Space Agency and other stakeholders. Part of the project is the investment in a new infrastructure for satellites development in Kigali.
