TUNIS, March 22 (Xinhua) -- The Tunisian satellite Challenge ONE was launched on Monday from the Baikonur base in south-central Kazakhstan aboard the Russian Soyuz-2.1a rocket which also carried other satellites.

On this occasion, Telnet Group, the owner of Challenge ONE, organized a ceremony at its headquarters in the capital Tunis to follow the live coverage of the event at the presence of Tunisian President Kais Saied.

"This event reflects the aspiration of Tunisia and young Tunisians to exceed the limits of the earth," Saied said in a speech broadcasted on State television Wataniya 1.

For his part, Mohamed Frikha, chief executive officer of Telnet Group, said, "It is the fruit of a whole generation of culture and knowledge as well as the work of 20 Tunisian engineers supervised by Telnet," adding that this satellite is only the first step towards space which will be followed by others.

Challenge ONE is a small satellite that weighs about 3 kg. It will be used in the Internet of Things technology.

This satellite, designed and developed by exclusively Tunisian skills, will allow communication and data exchange in many areas including control, transport, agriculture and logistics by receiving data and sending it to suppliers around the world. Enditem
