In January 2008, an Israeli spy satellite was successfully launched into orbit under a commercial contract between IAI and Antrix Corporation. The launch of IAI-Elta – ELM-2070 TecSAR satellite by an India-made rocket was carried out from the Sriharikota space station of ISRO. Antrix Corporation is the commercial arm of ISRO.
The satellite was designed and developed by MBT Space, a division of IAI. It is equipped with a camera that can see through clouds and carry out day and night all-weather imaging.
