ISpA seeks Space Park creation

"There has to be a Space Park, where incentives in manufacturing will be given. Only a production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme won’t work as it is meant only for a product," AK Bhatt, director general, ISpA told ETSatcom.

NEW DELHI: The Indian Space Association (ISpA) said that the government should set up a Space Park and offer tax holidays to promote satellite technology and boost domestic manufacturing in line with Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India).

"There has to be a Space Park, where incentives in manufacturing will be given. Only a production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme won’t work as it is meant only for a product," AK Bhatt, director general, ISpA told ETSatcom.

The Delhi-based space group represents OneWeb, Larsen & Toubro, Bharti Airtel, Tata's Nelco, Godrej, Hughes India and Walchandnagar Industries.

The government, according to him, should also allow tax holidays for some time.

"Our first startup is 10-year-old. The incentive is only for 10 years. But the policy has not come. We would request the government to give them five more years. Multiple incentives will have to be given to the industry for more people to come into the sector," the executive said.

The top executive said that creation of Space Park should be on a public-private partnership (PPP) mode, and would also boost localised product testing capabilities in tandem with Centre's prestigious self-reliance initiative in manufacturing.

"It (Space Parks) should be on a public private partnership, and only private players may not be required for creating it. There will be a possibility of high-grade testing too," Bhatt said.

The group has also sought access to the Isro testing facility initially.

If this market grows, Isro’s facility after some time will be inadequate. There will be a queue, and it should be created somewhere so that multiple companies including startups can benefit, he added.

ISpA refers to the Indian Space Association, which is a private space industry body in India

  Don't know where else to put this- it's an individual's satellite, which is planned to be launched sometime this month. By whom?

Three private sector satellite makers are expected to send their earth observation satellites this fiscal, according to the sectoral regulator Indian National Space Promotion and Authorisation Centre (IN-SPACe).

The three companies are the Chennai-based GalaxEye Space Solutions Pvt Ltd, Hyderabad-based Dhruva Space and the Bengaluru-based Pixxel.

GalaxEye’s first satellite Dhrishti is expected to launch in the last quarter of 2023, said IN-SPACe.

GalaxEye plans high resolution multi payload microsatellite constellation, comprising optical and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) payloads enabling data fusion using Drishti Sensors targeting environmental, Illegal Vessel Monitoring, insurance applications and others, IN-SPACe said in a consultation paper on the status and opportunities in Indian earth observation satellite segment.

On the other hand, Dhruva Space’s hyperspectral mission launch is scheduled during the first quarter of 2024.

The sectoral regulator also said Satsure’s subsidiary KaleidEO has planned a constellation of four satellites to provide images of 1 meter spatial resolution.

IN-SPACe did not specify any time for the launch of the satellites.

IN-SPACe said Pixxel has planned to launch the first commercial phase satellites in 2023 comprising six satellites covering any point on the globe every 48 hours.

ISRO Transfers IMS-1 Satellite Bus Technology to a Private Industry

August 04, 2023

As yet another step in enhancing the private industry participation in the Indian Space sector, ISRO transferred the IMS-1 Satellite Bus Technology to M/S Alpha Design Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (ADTL). NewSpace India Limited (NSIL), the commercial arm of ISRO, facilitated the technology transfer through an agreement signed during an event held at the NSIL headquarters on August 2, 2023. The Technology Transfer Documents were formally handed over by Shri. D Radhakrishnan, Chairman and Managing Director of NSIL to Col. H. S. Shankar (Retd.) VSM, Chairman and Managing Director of ADTL. ADTL is one of the two private players identified to receive the transfer of this technology through Interest Exploratory Note (IEN) published by NSIL.

This transfer marks the beginning of satellite-bus technologies developed by ISRO being transferred to private industries. Further, the PSLV is under productionisation by a consortium of industries. ISRO has been enabling private players develop Space technologies by facilitating and extending the expertise thus ensuring both the out-bound and in-bound approaches.

The IMS-1 satellite bus, developed by the U R Rao Satellite Centre (URSC/ ISRO), is a versatile and efficient small satellite platform designed to facilitate low-cost access to space. The bus serves as a dedicated vehicle for various payloads, enabling Earth imaging, ocean and atmospheric studies, microwave remote sensing, and space science missions while ensuring a quick turnaround time for satellite launches.

IMS-1 bus, weighing about 100 kg, accommodates a 30 kg payload. Solar arrays generate 330 W power with a raw bus voltage of 30-42 V. It offers a 3-axis stabilized with four reaction wheels with a 1 N thruster that provides +/- 0.1 degree pointing accuracy. It is a forerunner for IMS-2 bus technology, capable of improved features. IMS-1 bus is utilised in previous ISRO missions like IMS-1, Youthsat and Microsat-2D.

By transferring the IMS-1 technology to the private sector, ISRO/DoS aims to bolster India's industrial growth in the space sector and foster technological self-reliance. The development opens up new avenues for private players to contribute to space research and exploration, in line with India's vision to expand its presence in the global space market.

NSIL is a wholly owned Government of India company, under the administrative control of the Department of Space (DOS). NSIL enables Indian industries to take up high-technology space-related activities and promotes commercial exploitation of the products and services emanating from the Indian space programme. Technologies ready for transfer by NSIL and the application details are at: here

Alpha Design Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (ADTL) is a leading aerospace and defense company based in India. With expertise in engineering, manufacturing, and system integration, ADTL has been a key player in various projects related to defense, space, and homeland security, contributing significantly to India's technological progress in these domains. here
