Abstract

In this study seven states at the Wider Middle East are examined on space activity. These are Israel, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., Qatar and Egypt. All states are classifi ed in three groups according to their space capabilities. The first group contains Israel and Iran as Space Power states, that means that they have the ability to build their own space assets and to put them there with their means, that is their launch vehicles. The second group contains Turkey, Saudi Arabia and U.A.E as major space actors with import presence on space. There is also the third group containing other states from W.M.E. who are minor space actors, these are Egypt, Pakistan, Qatar and Azerbaijan. In this study only data for Egypt and Qatar are presented. Israel is the most important space power with international cooperation on commercial space sector and also in the scientific and military sector. Iran is following but with many delays and lower technology due to international embargo. Turkey is activated both in commercial and military sector but it constraints to previous technology and also hasn’t the ability to launch. Saudi Arabia and U.A.E. have invested mainly to the commercial sector but nowadays they moved to deploy the military part. The other states, Egypt and Qatar are in entry level.
