About ISRO: The Indian Space Research Organization is the space agency of the Government of India headquartered in the city of Bengaluru.

Headquarters: Bengaluru

Founder: Vikram Sarabhai

Founded: 15 August 1969

The primary objective of the Indian Space programme is to harness the advanced research areas of space science and technology for national development and to derive the maximum benefit for the people of India.

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has evolved a programme through which financial support is provided for conducting research and development activities related to Space Science, Space Technology and Space Application to academia in India. This programme of Research Sponsored by ISRO is called RESPOND. In special cases research and development projects proposed by non-academic R & D laboratories can also be supported through this programme. The aim of RESPOND is to encourage quality research in areas of relevance to the Indian space programme.

The Indian Space Programme includes the following major elements:

  • Demonstration of the feasibility of deriving from space science and technology- applications in space communications, long distance education, earth resources mapping/survey, meteorology and geodesy.
  • Development of indigenous capability for design and development of orbiting satellites for scientific research and space applications, sounding rockets and satellite launch vehicles.

ISRO’s services are presently commercialized by Antrix Corporation: Recently ISRO has announced plans to for the involvement of the Indian industry towards production of integrated systems for its future launches. ISRO needs to develop and mark its capabilities up in the commercial market for space- based surveillance and communication through integrated modules. Presently participation of firms like Godrej Aerospace, L&T etc. is there for supplying components and systems for launches.

After launching 104 satellites in one go, ISRO has left behind the world wide same field players. This has also increased level of global competition manifolds especially from companies like Space X (Falcon 9 rocket) and Blue Origin (New Shephard rocket) which are fully backed with financial cushion, the step of commercializing its services is the need of the hour.

Concluding Remark: With involvement of private sector with adequate finance future launches can be facilitated and encouraged at the same time. Augmenting healthier competition in the space market would make the space launches cheaper. Presently ISRO wants an economically sustainable approach for the development of two Navic satellites which will decrease ISRO’s resource load and cater to its operational risks. Not only pooling in more money in this sector will help but also resource management has to be done. Reusing and recycling the technology can reduce the burden nevertheless India is also trying to master the re- usable technology for space shuttles.
