Kazcosmos denies that Musabayev has real estate property in UAE
Almaty. April 18. KazTAG - The National Space Agency ( NCA Kazkosmos ) denies that its chairman Talgat Musabaeva has property in the UAE.
"This information (published in the French media about T.Musabayev's property in the UAE - KazTAG) is false. Nor he, neither the space agency have any property in the UAE," reads the reply of Kazcosmos to KazTAG request.
In addition , it is reported that in contrast to the foreign media reports , the company acquired two satellites from NCA EADS Astrium with good performance characteristics .
"For example, images from the spacecraft Pleiades have a resolution of 0.7 m at the MTF ( modulation transfer function - KazTAG) -15 %, while BP ERS spacecraft ( spacecraft with high-resolution of remote sensing of the Earth - KazTAG) with resolution of 0.75 m has an MTF of about 19 %. (...) Thus , the images of Pleiades satellites at a somewhat better resolution have poorer image quality ", explained the letter.
Meanwhile, according to the Internet portal French Intelligence Online, the satellites , Kazakhstan acquired from EADS Astrium, are outdated, though other companies offered higher resolution satellites .
