Uruguay is set to launch its first satellite by 2013, developed by experts from the University of Engineering of Uruguay and financed by the state company for telecommunications ANTEL.

The purpose of this satellite is to cover rural areas where fibre optics cannot reach and experts are learning how to manage the energy and communications protocols which will allow the satellite to transmit the necessary information.

The new satellite will transmit on a low orbit and it will be only within sight fifteen minutes a day which, making monitoring more complicated.
