(Worthy News) - Israel's major aerospace and aviation manufacturer will develop and manufacture a national communications satellite that is expected to serve the country's needs for at least 15 years.
According to the agreement signed between Israel Aerospace Industries and the government on Thursday, the development of the satellite, dubbed 'Dror-1' will take up to four years and will cost approximately NIS 200 million ($58 million) to develop.
IAI is expected to utilize mainly Israeli-developed technologies to build the satellite, such as a digital communications payload and "space smartphone" capabilities, enabling communication flexibility. [ Source: YNet News (Read More...) ]
