Since October 1957 the world launched almost 5000 satellites Tunisia didn't have anyone of them ! Carthage Sat 01 will be inshallah the first "Tunisian satellite" in space
CarthageSat 01 is to promote aerospace field in Tunisia, This project is the first step to build personal satellites , as personal computers, personal TV and personal telephone.
The CarthageSat01 picosatellite aims to take pictures of the earth from outerspace and send it to my ground station, these pictures can be used for earth observation for weather ,pictures can be used also for scientific pleasure.CarthageSat01 will take pictures of Tunisian view by day and night
This is the graduation project of Karim Hamid
I study in ESPRIT engineering school
I am from Tunisia from Halfaouine city
I love scientific rocket and aerospace projects
I am the president of Tunisian Space Agency's association
This is Carthage One mini rocket during C'Space competition in France (August 2011)
A CubeSat is a type of miniaturized satellite for space research that usually has a volume of exactly one liter (10 cm cube), has a mass of no more than 1.33 kilograms.
This picosatellite is powred by solar cells wich convert solar energy to electricity
This picosatellite uses an innovating way to send and receive data between itself and its command and control human operator.
CarthageSat 01 is based on Thurayasat communications satellites for the remote control tasks, based on GPS satellites for live tracking informations.
In fact : it is a very low cost picosatellite,CarthageSat 01 project costs the half of amount comparing to similar project in the world

This is the first test of CarthageSat01, in front of Telecommunication city (elghazela city) This is the first test of live tracking recording of GPS streaming of CarthageSat 01 picosatellite during the car test from ESPRIT School to Omniacom company to Tunis
This is the second test of live tracking recording of GPS streaming of CarthageSat 01 picosatellite during the car test around Esprit in Charguia 2
CarthageSat 01 project was shown in many media supports, radio, newspaper, TV, in addition I made many presentations and conferences talking about CarthageSat 0& first Tunisian Satellite into Space, espacially in TEDxENIS conference
