MoU for World’s First Satellite with Both SAR and Optical Payloads

Antaris and GalaxEye collaborate for geospatial imaging satellite to launch in 4Q23.

Satellite constellation operators deploy special satellites to capture specific types of data. Every piece of data captured from different locations at different timestamps makes it difficult to correlate data. Multi-sensor satellites are needed that can capture both SAR and optical data from the same satellite. This can hold a huge value for environmental, insurance and defence applications.  

Overcoming this challenge, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between Antaris and GalaxEye to create the world’s first satellite featuring both SAR and optical sensors on a single satellite. GalaxEye, Ananth Technologies and XDLINX Lab along with Antaris are committed to solving a vexing legacy challenge for consumers of remote sensing data.

Tom Barton, Co-Founder and CEO of Antaris, “The Antaris software platform was specifically designed as an end-to-end solution to help dramatically simplify the design, build and management of satellites. The opportunity to join forces with our friends at Ananth Technologies, GalaxEye and XDLINX to provide a breakthrough solution for a multi-payload satellite imaging constellation is a great example of what our flexible platform was designed to do.”

Suyash Singh, CEO of GalaxEye, said “We are very excited to partner with Ananth, Antaris and XDLINX as we strongly believe that our combined expertise will result in a successful mission of GalaxEye’s satellite which will provide superior geospatial imagery to our customers. This is a unique start-up collaboration in the space sector in India and will be further strengthened through support from ISRO and IN-SPACe. This MOU will be marked as the first milestone.”

As per the MoU, Antaris would provide the SaaS technology platform required to design, simulate, build and manage the earth observation satellite from GalaxEye and its onboard Drishti sensor. 

Ananth Technologies on the other hand will provide AIT (Assembly, Integration and Test) services and manufacturing capabilities, while XDLINX Labs would design the spacecraft bus and supply chain integration services. 

Rupesh Gandupalli, CEO of XDLINX said, “XDLINX is very pleased to partner with Ananth Technologies and Antaris to realize the bus platform to support this unique mission for GalaxEye.”

 Dr. Subba Rao Pavuluri, CEO of Ananth Technologies, said “Ananth is truly excited to enable GalaxEye’s vision through Ananth’s Mission-as-a-Service (MaaS) offering,. Our MaaS platform is a fruition of the synergetic collaboration of Ananth with its key partners, Antaris Inc and XDLINX Labs. Beyond launch, Ananth also sees opportunities to collaborate with GalaxEye in offering advanced geospatial services to Ananth’s existing and new GIS customers.”
