Elon Musk’s SpaceX plans to partner with Indian firms to locally manufacture satellite communications equipment, including antenna systems and user terminal devices, as it gears up to launch its high-speed Starlink satellite broadband services in the country next year.

“SpaceX is excited to find ways to work together with the Indian industry for manufacturing products for its Starlink devices,” Matt Botwin, director (market access with the Starlink program), said on Monday during SpaceX first official interaction with the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) secretary Anshu Prakash.

The company always looks for opportunities to maximize the efficiency of its (global) supply chain, and “is now looking forward to working with its partners in India to recognize those opportunities”, Botwin said.
