Callisto wins a major contract from the Indian Space Research Organisation

Published by

Callisto is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a major contract from the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

The contract is for the supply of a cryo-cooled low noise amplifier system for a satellite ground station and the contract has been awarded by the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking & Command Network (ISTRAC) located in Bangalore. ISTRAC is responsible for the development and operation of a worldwide network of ground stations to support of India’s space programme. ISTRAC has recently embarked on the development of a new ground station for scientific satellites, which will be sent out of Earth orbit to explore the solar system, so called “Deep Space” missions. For these Deep Space missions a very sensitive ground station is required featuring a large antenna and needing very sensitive cryo-cooled low noise amplifiers.


Callisto a remporté un important contrat avec l’ISRO ( Indian Space Research Organisation).

Ce contrat a été signé avec l’ISTRAC ( ISRO Telemetry, Tracking & Command Network) basé à Bangalore et porte sur la livraison d’un système d’amplificateur cryogénique faible bruit pour une station sol. L’ISTRAC est en charge du développement et de l’opération du réseau mondial de stations sol qui interviennent dans le programme spatial indien. L’ISTRAC s’est récemment lancé dans le développement d’une nouvelle station sol pour les satellites scientifiques qui seront envoyés hors de l’orbite terrestre pour explorer le système solaire, dans le cadre de missions dites “lointaines”. Ce type de mission lointaine nécessite une station sol très sensible, avec une grande antenne et des amplificateurs cryogéniques faible bruit très sensibles.
