Pixxel, the innovative spacetech startup backed by Google and Lightspeed, is making waves in the industry with its recent developments. One of the most notable is the unveiling of their cutting-edge MegaPixxel facility in Bengaluru. This massive 30,000 square feet space features a specialized 'clean' room and a state-of-the-art testing area, setting the stage for significant advancements in satellite technology. In an insightful interview with ET, Pixxel's CEO, Awais Ahmed, shared the grand vision behind the MegaPixxel facility. This isn’t just a new building; it’s a monumental step forward, showcasing Pixxel's dedication to innovation and precision in hyperspectral imaging satellite manufacturing. But the excitement doesn't stop there! Pixxel is also preparing to launch its new analytics platform, Aurora, to the public in June 2024. While it’s already being tested by a select group of users, Aurora promises to deliver groundbreaking insights and applications that could transform various industries.
