On future launches, Sivan said, "The next mission -- Chandrayaan-2 -- is going to be a landmark mission for India. It is going to be the most complex mission ever undertaken by ISRO. It is going to take place between July 9 and July 16 this year." He added that the landing on the moon is expected to be on September 6. "It is going to land at a particular location where nobody has gone before." After Chandrayaan-2, Sivan said, "ISRO would look at launching the very high resolution CARTOSAT 3 satellite." "A second demonstration of the reusable launch vehicle is going to happen in the coming months. Cost effective small satellite launch vehicle developments are also going to take place in a few months from now," he added.

Chandrayaan to be launched on July 15India's second lunar mission, Chandrayaan-II, will be launched on July 15 by a GSLV-MkIII rocket from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC), Sriharikota Range. A combo of an orbiter, a lander named 'Vikram (after the late Dr Vikram Sarabhai), and a rover christened 'Pragyan', it will cruise through outer space for two months before entering into an orbit around the earth's nearest astral neighbour. The lander-rover will touch down on the Moon, close to the South Pole, in the first week of September to probe the lunar surface as well as carryout experiments. In all, 13 instruments (eight on the orbiter, three on the lander, and two on the rover) along with one from NASA (a laser retro-reflector array or LRA) will be carried onboard Chandrayaan-II, according to sources in ISRO.
“Chandrayaan-2 mission will be launched on 15 July at 2:51am,” said K Sivan, chairman of ISRO.
Outlining its ambitious future plans, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has announced that it will have a separate space station by 2030.At a press conference in New Delhi, Dr K Sivan, Chairman, ISRO announced “‘it will be a smaller module, which would be mainly used to carry out microgravity experiments.”...He also announced agency’s ambitious mission to the Sun — Aditya-L1 (Liberator) in 2020 and its major aim is to study the Sun’s corona, through which it will be easier to understand more about climate change on earth.Sivan said that “The agency wants to study its effects on climate change and we hope to launch it in the first half of next year.”
2022 - GSLV MkIII - GaganYaan (First manned mission)
Mission Description:Hera Systems Inc. will launch one 1HOPSat-TD spacecraft in a launch window opening on July 31,2019, and closing in September 2019. This spacecraft will launch to an altitude of 555 km andinclination of 37 degrees.During launch, the satellite will be contained in a 12U CubeSat payload dispenser attached to theupper stage of the launch vehicle. The 12U dispensers provide full enclosure of the satellite untildeployment in orbit. After deployment and prescribed time delays, a hatch panel will open to allow lightinto the imager aperture, deploy antennas, and reorient a small solar panel. Imaging andcommunications will begin after this hatch is opened. There will be no propulsion on the 1HOPSat-TDspacecraft. Pointing control is provided by precise attitude determination and control systems. A GPSunit is included for accurate orbit location. The 1HOPSat-TD spacecraft orbit will decay naturally from555 km.The satellite contains an imaging telescope payload for recording images and video of customerspecified regions of the Earth at one (1) meter ground sample distance (GSD). The collected imageswill be transmitted to Earth through multiple ground stations over a single carrier, OQPSK, X-bandradio link. Commanding, telemetry, and supplemental image downlink will be implemented with anexperimental C-band radio using 802.11n (OFDM) technology. Commanding and telemetry aresupplemented with an Iridium™ short burst data (SBD) radio providing low rate data
Skyroot Aerospace, a Hyderabad-based private space company, is building India’s first private orbital launch vehicles. ‘Vikram’, the first such vehicle, will be launched in 2021. It is capable of putting up satellites that weigh less than 300kg in low earth orbit (altitudes of up to 2,000km).
Parliamentary Q&A [18 July 2019]: Queries on upcoming science missions, updates on DISHA and MOM-2.Queries in Rajyasabha todayhttp://188.8.131.52/newrsquestion/Search_minwise.aspxQ. No. 2955 - [PDF]On upcoming science missions. Aditya L1 mission to study the Sun in 2020 X-ray Polarisation Satellite (Xposat) mission to study X-ray polarisation in 2020 Venus mission is planned during 2023. 17 Indian payloads and 7 international payloads recommended Second mission to Mars (MOM-2) is planned during 2024 Disturbed and quite-type Ionosphere System at High Altitude (DISHA) satellites are planned during 2024-25 Astronomy mission in 2025
The technology will be offered immediately through ST Engineering’s TeLEOS-1, which was launched in 2015, and later, via the TeLEOS-2 which is expected to be launched in 2022.
Isro has already completed some ground simulations and the work on launching two small spacecraft to test this out in space is in the pipeline. However, with Chandrayaan-2, Aditya mission and Gaganyaan on top of Isro's priorities-satellite launches also needs augmentation-serious work on SPADEX may only being after three to four years. "But just like we kept preparing for Gaganyaan quietly, work will go on," one scientist said.
The GSAT 7R, which will be designed to be compatible with a variety of platforms including future submarines of the Indian Navy, has an expected launch date in 2020. In December last year, a dedicated military communications satellite for the Indian Air Force, dubbed the Indian Angry Bird, was also launched by ISRO.
