Egypt, fearing its access to the Nile River will be hindered, plans to use a new satellite to track Ethiopia’s construction of Africa’s largest dam.
The Egysat, launched earlier this month, will monitor Ethiopia’s Grand Renaissance Dam by capturing high-quality photos of the construction site along with other sources of the Nile, said Alaa El-din El-Nahry, vice president of Egypt’s National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences.
