The agreement makes Ananth Technologies the official distributor of NanoAvionics’ products and services in India, giving companies one stop access to cost effective small, micro and nano satellites, including subsystems. The local access will save them time and cost for assembly, integration and test of at Ananth’s facilities in Hyderabad and Bengaluru. Customers will also have access to low cost launch service, using ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), and post launch operation services. In addition, this partnership between NanoAvionics and Ananth Technologies is going to foster relationships with Indian research institutions and suppliers.
NanoAvionics and Ananth Technology will work together to meet India’s demand for smallsats with the flight-proven NanoAvionics smallsat buses and subsystems. NanoAvionics’ standardized nanosatellite buses satisfy the requirements for a wide range of smallsat applications, thanks to their regular connectivity, powerful and reliable hardware, up to 14U of payload volume and integrated propulsion system. NanoAvionics’s designs provide functions for smallsats that once required much larger spacecraft.
“Our new partnership with Ananth Technologies opens new doors for NanoAvionics,” NanoAvionics’ CEO Vytenis J. Buzas said. “Ananth Tech is one of the most trusted names in the Indian aerospace sector. Their network, experience and world-class satellite manufacturing facilities will allow us to serve an emerging Indian NewSpace market more effectively. India‘s private space sector is a vibrant community of talented individuals having innovative ideas. I am sure that the recent Indian space policy changes, which just opened up the space sector for private participation, combined with partnerships with international players of the industry, will accelerate the growth and kickstart the birth of more Indian NewSpace stars.”
“The new agreement between Ananth Technology and NanoAvionics will bring mutual benefits while serving the new generation of private space companies in India,” said Anurup Pavuluri, the Director of Ananth Technologies.
