Why space agency for sa
WHY SPACE AGENCY FOR SA?

  • The Space Agency will have a role of consolidating all Government and industry efforts around space to make 1 VISION

  • SANSA to build operational satellites for Earth observation, Communication, etc. SA Space Missions

  • Promote sustainable economic development through, SMMEs development and capacity building programmes

  • To position South Africa as a leader in the African Space race, without promoting duplication of activities but rather looking at partnerships which prove to be mutually beneficial, in astronomy, science or military missions.

  • SANSA ‘s dedicated Bill will provide recognition for the space capabilities that have been developed over the decades for SA (Dedicated Bill = Dedicated Budget)


Specific comments on the space bill
SPECIFIC COMMENTS ON THE SPACE BILL

  • In Section 3(b),

    This clause should include “creation and development of SMMEs” and should read as follows;

    support the creation and development of SMMEs and an environment conducive to industrial development in space technologies;

    2. In Section 4.2(b), the word “dispose” needs some definition in the form of footnote or in Section 1 of this Bill.

    It is in the interests of C&M and the country that space related facilities, technology or institutions be given a second chance or an alternative. C&M suggest the development of a policy that will guide the disposal of any space related property.

    3. In Section 4.2(c) C&M suggests that it(the Agency) be not be limited to borrowing but other financial arrangements like PPP be allowed to the Agency.
