GCC OKs Spy Satellite Procurement

November 10, 2006 -- The Gulf Cooperation Council has agreed to procure a military reconnaissance satellite.

Officials said the six GCC states have received the results of a feasibility study on a regional spy satellite that would monitor such countries as Iran, Iraq and Israel. They said the study, conducted by an unidentified Western consultant determined that the GCC could own and operate a joint satellite that would provide all of its members with remote-sensing images.

"This is the first step," an official said. "There are more steps to come until such a project begins."

Officials said GCC defense ministers have been studying the satellite proposal during their meeting in Abu Dhabi. They said the ministers would relay their recommendations to the GCC leadership, which plans to meet in December.
