France-based satellite antenna maker ANYWAVES announced on Tuesday that it would supply an S-band TT&C antenna for the microsatellite built by India’s Syzygy Space Technologies Pvt Ltd, commonly known as Pixxel.
According to ANYWAVES, the company received two flight models of its S-band TT&C antenna.
“They will equip a microsatellite that is expected to be launched by Pixxel in late 2021,” ANYWAVES said in a statement.
