Africa especially Nigeria, could greatly benefit from space technology. For instance there would be high increase in performance of security especially offshore and remote regions. Our security personnels are limited because of their inability to be at every point at thesame time. An earth observation satellite with an orbital period of a day, providing the security agencies with needed data (aerial photography) would give the needed cost savings and improved performance in the long run.

Other benefits of this technology include environmental monitoring which include oil spillage and gas flaring monitoring.
