World’s First Cloud-Built Demonstration Satellite Launched JANUS-1 Successfully

Antaris announced that the world’s first satellite fully conceived, designed, and manufactured using the company’s end-to-end cloud platform, JANUS-1 has successfully reached orbit. JANUS-1 rode on the Indian Space Research Organization’s (ISRO) SSLV-D2 rocket.

JANUS-1 was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre of India under a commercial arrangement with New Space India Limited (NSIL). The JANUS-1 satellite features five payloads from a range of global providers, which will be commissioned and begin nominal operations.

World’s First Cloud-Built Demonstration Satellite Launched JANUS-1 Successfully- Key Points

  • Additional tech demonstration satellites from Antaris and manufacturing partners Ananth Technologies and XDLINX Labs are planned for 2023, including 6U, 12U, and 27U satellite reference architectures.
  • JANUS-1 is a 6U satellite featuring payload and subsystem technologies from AICRAFT, Morpheus Space, Netra, SayariLabs Kenya, SpeQtral, Transceles, trial, and Zero-Error Systems (ZES).
  • It will perform internet of things (IoT) communications, advanced experimental laser communications, radio communications, and machine learning (ML) during orbit.
  • Antaris SatOS software manages core bus responsibilities while orchestrating multitenant payloads and onboard computing—in addition to showcasing secure TT&C protocols with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and ATLAS Space Operations, who are providing ground communications services.
  • The project was completed in just 10 months from concept to launch readiness with a cost savings of 75% over comparable satellite missions.
  • Antaris anticipates that future spacecraft missions can be ready for launch in as few as six months. While the launch marks the start of JANUS-1’s on-orbit mission, the satellite has been ‘in flight’ for months via the company’s unique TrueTwin digital twinning technology.
  • It creates a digital version of the satellite at the start of the project and then integrates with hardware-in-the-loop as hardware becomes available.
