Israeli company launches nanosatellite

Israeli aerospace and defense company Elbit Systems Ltd announced on Wednesday it launched its nanosatellite Nanova in space, in order for it to become a part of a nanosatellite constellation. The satellite, size of a juice carton, was created in partnership with a company from the United States whose name was not publicly announced.

The company said the satellite will be used for commercial purposes as it hosts an Ultra High Frequency (UHF) communication payload that enables a direct satellite link for data, voice and text messaging.

General Manager of Elbit Systems Aerospace Division, Yoram Shmuely, said that the company intends to "continue to invest in this emerging field, expanding our sensing capabilities and the range of potential applications."
