The Kenya Space Agency (KSA) has collaborated with the Nakuja project team from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in making remarkable strides to advance rocket technology.
The N-3 rockets, named Kabura, Kifaru, Simba, and Tembo, have been successfully launched, marking a significant achievement in this joint initiative.
This cooperative effort signifies a critical step forward in realizing the long-term objectives of the project, bringing Kenya closer to its ultimate goal of deploying satellites into orbit. The recent development and launch of the N-3 rockets represent a major milestone in the pursuit of these objectives.
Before reaching this milestone, the Nakuja team showcased their dedication and progress by successfully constructing two solid model rockets, N-1 and N-2. These accomplishments underscore the significant strides made in rocket technology within the region.
The collaboration underscores the steadfast commitment of both academic institutions and government agencies to propel Kenya to the forefront of space exploration.
