Alcomsat-1, the first telecommunications satellite launched by Algeria

The Alcomsat-1 telecommunications satellite, first of its kind for Algeria,
was launched on December 11, 2017 by the Algerian Space Agency
(Asal) from China.

Alcomsat-1 is no exception. While being the first telecommunications
satellite to be launched by Algeria, it is actually the sixth satellite
launched by Algeria since 2002, the first five satellites being used for
Earth observation.
