US: Aerospace giant, Airbus Defence and Space has inked a $7 million worth of contract with Anaren Inc. for an advanced beamforming assembly to be deployed on the Eutelsat Quantum Satellite program, which Airbus Defence and Space is developing for Eutelsat, as part of Public-Private funded partnership with European Space Agency.

The program focussing Eutelsat Quantum, will feature the world's first fully reconfigurable commercial satellite, allowing Eutelsat to adapt the satellite in response to new demands in coverage, bandwidth, power, frequency, and even changes in its orbital position. Anaren will deliver its first flight-set hardware to Airbus Defence and Space in calendar year 2017, with additional system tests and production anticipated over subsequent years.
