“Slovenia plans to send its first two satellites to space in the first half of 2019. Trisat and Nemo HD will provide data that, in combination with data from the EU Copernicus programme, will help develop solutions in agriculture, forestry and urbanism, and will provide invaluable data following natural disasters.

Responding to a question from an MP, the government has said that the satellites would be sent to space on a Vega rocket launched by Arianespace, a company developing launch solutions for the European Space Agency (ESA).” (Slovenia Times)
