First Central American space satellite to be developed in Costa Rica
By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The Central American space program delivered the components of the first Central American satellite for development to the Tecnológico de Costa Rica Wednesday.

Over the next six months, researchers at the institution will be responsible to develop, verify and program the different systems, according to a release issued by the technological institute. This represents a huge first for the Central American region and for Costa Rica, according to Paola Vega, the vice rector of research at the Tecnológico.

“From the moment we receive the pieces, we have to carry out more than 30 development activities. All systems are going to be verified that they operate automatically here in the country, and in addition they will be connected to verify that each of the systems work properly,” said Adolfo Chaves.

He is one of the engineering professors who will be working on the project.

Some of the components that will be tested on the satellite include the computers, communications, solar panels, antennas and the power system.

Proyecto Irazú is the first satellite in history for Costa Rica and the rest of Central America. The purpose of the satellite is to collect data related to carbon fixation and the growth of melina trees, according to the institute.

Additionally, the satellite will monitor how trees in Costa Rica’s forests and jungle are reacting within a state of climate change facing the world today.

Particularly, the sequestration of carbon in relation to these forests is a priority for examination.

The data collected from this satellite is expected to be examined at the monitoring station of Tecnológico de Costa Rica in the main campus at Cartago.

Following the verification stage, the components of the satellite will then move to the Zona Franca del Coyol in Alajuela. The satellite will be launched from Japan, according to the institute.
