Itaipú Technological Park concluded report for launch of first Paraguayan satellite

Itaipú Technological Park (Spanish: Parque Tecnológico Itaipú, PTI) prepared the final feasibility report of the first satellite mission in Paraguay. The initiative also includes the Concejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología de Paraguay (Conacyt) (National Council of Science and Technology of Paraguay), with support from Itaipu Binacional and the Argentine company Invap. The engineer Enrique Buzarquis, leader of the project, said that the telecommunications satellite is the best option for the country.

The idea is to put two devices into orbit. In the first mission they will place an Earth observation satellite, which would cost about US$3 million and could be put into orbit in two years. The second mission, focused on the geostationary satellite, would require an investment of approximately US$90 million: the objective is to boost connectivity to the Internet in schools, hospitals, police stations and other sensitive institutions of the State to reduce the digital divide.
