“Small satellites are an ideal solution if there is the lack of the needed volumes of satellite communication and broadcasting that India has at present,” Aniara President Raghu Das said.
“Small spacecraft make it possible to profitably service small markets that are unprofitable for heavier and costly geostationary systems,” Dauria Aerospace said.
Deputy head of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) Denis Lykov said that the agency supports the appearance in the sector of new private players that improve its export potential.
“The signing of the deal is an important step for the formation of Russia’s new space economy and we are ready to support such companies as Dauria Aerospace in the national market and outside it,” he said.
