In this phase, Kenya will begin to transcend to the Operator level from a User level of the space technology capability hierarchy pyramid. This progression will be realized through further expansion of the resources and capacities formerly initiated in the preceding phases. Expanding capabilities will further be augmented by the introduction of completely new competences. […]Read more "Kenya Space Sector Formulation—Phase 4"
I am delighted that after a brief hiatus, the regular posts and discussions on establishing a space space in Kenya have now resumed. Let us keep the conversation going. The next post will be on Kenya Space Sector Formulation Phase 4.Read more "Discussion Resumes!"
It is in this phase that the physical establishment of the proposed space sector’s infrastructure and tangible capacity commences. A concurrent tripartite approach targeting i) human, ii) organizational and, iii) societal capacity development is required to ensure a comprehensive and efficacious inception of the Kenyan space sector. Similarly, identification and strategic engagement of potential collaboration […]Read more "Kenya Space Sector Formulation—Phase 3"
Happy New Year! As we continue with this important quest, let us take a look back at http://www.spacekenya.org 2013 report. Here’s an excerpt: A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,000 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 50 trips to carry that […]Read more "2013 in review"
It is in this phase of the road-map that the Kenya space sector organizational framework is defined. This organizational framework should not only present the constituent stakeholders; but, also elucidate the interaction dynamics between the stakeholders. Consequently, we propose the Kenya space sector organizational chart shown in the schematic below. This initial sector organizational framework […]Read more "Kenya Space Sector Formulation—Phase 2"
During the better part of last week, the discovery of two aquifers in Turkana County, Kenya dominated the headlines of major global media outlets. These colossal underground water reserves (which have been confirmed by drilling) are estimated to contain a minimum of 250 billion cubic meters of water replenished annually at a rate of 3.4 […]Read more "Turkana Tale: Space Technology and Colossal Aquifers"
The definitive road-map that Kenya needs to follow in order to establish a domestic space sector from scratch will essentially entail ascending the space technology capability hierarchy pyramid. This scrupulous technology capability evolution process will involve initial lumpy resource investments whose benefits will be commensurate with the level technology sophistication. We choose to segment Kenya’s […]Read more "Kenya Space Sector Formulation"
