Azista BST Aerospace Rolls out Maiden Satellite

Ibadan, 5 June 2023. – Azista BST Aerospace will launch its first satellite ABA First Runner (AFR), aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on 12th June 2023 as part of the Transporter 8 Mission. This follows from the Company’s creation of a 50,000-square-foot facility capable of supporting the production of two satellites per week.

The first satellite, AFR, is an 80kg satellite on a modular bus platform and hosts a wide-swath optical remote sensing payload. The satellite also enjoys both panchromatic and multispectral imaging capabilities. As a result, AFR represents one of the first satellites of its size and performance from the private space industry in India, capable of supporting various critical applications for civilian and defense purposes.
