  Callisto | News: Callisto wins a major contract from the Indian Space Research Organisation
For these Deep Space missions a very sensitive ground station is required featuring a large antenna and needing very sensitive cryo-cooled low noise amplifiers.
The main objective of the mission is the investigation of the distribution of various minerals and chemical elements and to undertake high-resolution three-dimensional mapping of the entire lunar surface.
Callisto a déjà fourni des amplificateurs cryogéniques faible bruit pour l'antenne n° 1 DSA (Deep Space Antenna) basée en Australie en 2000 et pour l'antenne n° 2 DSA en Espagne en 2004.
