MOHAMMED VI-A is Morocco’s second satellite and the country’s first dedicated to high-resolution imaging. Named after Morocco’s reigning monarch, King Mohammed VI, the satellite is the first of two Moroccan imaging spacecraft that are expected to launch over the next two years. MOHAMMED VI-A is a 1,100-kilogram (2,400 lb) Earth imaging satellite which is expected to operate for at least five years. The second satellite, Mohammed VI-B, is scheduled for launch next year aboard another Vega – although Morocco has an option for a Soyuz launch should Vega be unavailable.
