The Space Technology Institute at Adama Science & Technology University inaugurated a new satellite monitoring station built with 100,000 dollars, according to the Institute.

The station is expected to monitor other satellites, and the country plans to send a satellite to space in 2019 with the support of China.

The satellite will be launched to observe and track environmental concerns, according to the Institute.
