Masat-1 is the first Hungarian satellite, developed by a team of PhD candidates and undergraduate students at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics.
We have been advising the project team, on a pro bono basis, on issues of both private and public space law. Our advice has focused especially on strategy for the negotiations of the Launch Service Agreement, but we have provided general legal support on all aspects of the project. We will continue to advise the Masat-1 team on all legal issues that arise during the remaining process of development of the Masat-1 satellite and its launch. The launch of the Masat-1 satellite is expected to take place in the first or second quarter of 2010.
