Spacetech Startup Pixxel Signs Deal For Earth-Imaging Satellite Launch In 2021

India’s first Earth-imaging satellite startup Pixxel is planning to launch its first satellite on an Indian rocket, instead of using a Russian one.

Pixxel was founded in February 2019 by then 21-year olds Awais Ahmed and Kshitij Khandelwal in their final year of undergraduate studies at BITS Pilani. Pixxel’s first satellite is scheduled to launch towards the end of this year on a Soyuz rocket.

While confirming the deal with Pixxel, ISRO chairman K Sivan said the space agency was keen to promote more Indian companies to take up space activities.
