KhalifaSat Captures Lockdown Images of Airports

Grounded on Earth Today, To the Skies Tomorrow 



Dubai, UAE, 07 May 2020:   While the Earth might be filled with grounded planes today, they will all be taking to the skies soon. In an appropriate response to the 'Stay at Home' movement, most passenger planes have been rested across airports around the world, awaiting their next flight dates.


These photos of the world's biggest airports such as Dubai International Airport, Shanghai International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, Beijing Capital International Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, were taken by KhalifaSat between March and April. The images were taken during the temporary suspension of the movement of air traffic, in light of the measures taken globally to limit the spread of the coronavirus 'COVID-19’, and to emphasise that 'We Will Win' the fight against this pandemic. 


 “We understand that we are passing through an unprecedented period due to the current pandemic, which has had an impact on climate emissions and pollution. We believe that data procured from KhalifaSat can be further used to explore the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Earth.” said Ammar AlMuhairi, Manager of the Image Processing Section, MBRSC.


KhalifaSat was fully developed at MBRSC facilities by Emirati engineers and was launched to space in October 2018. It has five patents and seven space innovations, making it the most advanced satellite of its category in the world. KhalifaSat provides images with specifications that meet the highest international standards in space images. These high-resolution, detailed images help government and private organisations to get accurate data, allowing them to monitor environmental changes, detect the effects of global warming, ensure responsible urban planning and management, and aid relief efforts at times of natural disasters.
