Also, the first article states that the agency will be affiliated with the president of the republic, having financial, administrative and technical independence to be able to do its job in a professional way.

The agency will seek to transfer space science and technology, with the aim of developing Cairo abilities with regard to building and launching satellites, which in turn could serve the country’s strategy in achieving development and maintaining the national security, according to the second article of the law.
