ISRO Makes History by Transferring Satellite Bus Technology to Private Firm

ISRO

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has transferred satellite bus technology to Bengaluru-based private firm, NewSpace India Limited (NSIL). This is the first time that ISRO has transferred satellite bus technology to a private company.

A satellite bus is the basic structure of a satellite that houses all of its components, such as the payload, the power system, and the propulsion system. The transfer of satellite bus technology to NSIL will help to boost the growth of the Indian space industry and make India self-reliant in the development and launch of satellites.

NSIL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ISRO that was created in 2019 to commercialise space products and services. The company has already signed a contract with ISRO to launch two satellites in 2023. The transfer of satellite bus technology will help NSIL to develop its own satellites and launch them into orbit.

The transfer of satellite bus technology is a major milestone in the development of the Indian space industry. It will help to create jobs and opportunities in the sector, and it will also make India self-reliant in the development and launch of satellites.
