All works on designing, assembling and testing the KazSTSAT satellite were carried out at the production facilities of Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd in Guildford (United Kingdom) with the participation of a team of engineers from Ghalam LLP consisting of 15 people.

The second satellite, KazSciSat-1, was assembled by Kazakh specialists at the Space Technique and Technology Institute in Almaty.
