Built by Airbus Defence and Space under a November 2008 contract with Madrid-based satellite servicers operator Hisdesat, Paz—whose name means “peace” in Spanish—is targeted to meet the security and defense requirements of the Spanish Government. As a dual-use, civil/defense mission, it will perform global observations in support of military and civilian applications, including rescue, maritime surveillance, tactical support, border control, disaster management, environmental control, risk management and counter-piracy, particularly off Somalia.
