Will it serve any useful purpose?

What? Another one?

There's been quite a lot of discussion on this forum about SA military satellites, I seem to recall.

We use to fight the Russians and partner with Isreal.

Now?

We hate Isreal and love Russia and China.

Sad actually

What's the point of a secret military satellite without a functional military to act on the intelligence it collects?

So it uses cloud-penetrating radar and can pick up cars? The cANCer regime must be worried that SCAMRAL's etrolling gantries will be stolen and sold for scrap metal.

Or maybe this satellite is really a super-secret way of upgrading the CCTV security at Nkanlda with some Nollywood pr0n channels thrown in for free.

Apparently it provides good business intelligence to Zooma family. Energy deals to russians, mining and farming to the guptas, the sea to the Chinese, etc...:twisted:

Remember when our spy agency set up shop at an internet cafe in Cape Town somewhere?

The project was eventually abandoned, because the "agents" didn't even know how to switch the computers on, nevermind doing some hacking?

This sounds exactly the same. Just a big waste.

From the article it seems that it's not yet a satellite. And since it won't be controlled by SA, it's actually a Russian satellite gifted by SA taxpayers who might get some pics from time to time. At Russia's choosing. Probably of the SA traffic...

You think our intelligence agents don't know how to turn a computer on? :rolleyes:

You'd be surprised.

After the satellite’s existence was disclosed, however, both the Department of State Security and Department of Defence refused to acknowledge as much.
!=
“The project and details thereof are classified,” said Defence Force spokesman Sphiwe Dlamini.
That's not refusal to acknowledge anything, quite the contrary.
Anyway... d-u-l-l discussion. Spy satellites... who doesn't have them these days.
