Nilesat was the first company in Egypt to operate and control satellites in geostationary orbit. It launched Nilesat-101, Nilesat-102, and Nilesat-201 between 1998 and 2010. In June 2022, the company launched its fourth satellite, the Nilesat 301 communications satellite, from Florida, on board a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The new satellite will deliver communications and satellite broadband services to Egypt and neighboring countries in North Africa and the Middle East.
