ЦитатаISRO to put Algerian satellites in orbit by 2010 Express News Service First Published : 14 Aug 2009 04:03:00 AM ISTLast Updated : 14 Aug 2009 04:05:43 AM ISTBANGALORE: With the US clearing the decks for the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to launch Algerian Satellites with American components, the space agency is planning to put the satellites in orbit by the end of 2009 or early 2010.The clearance given to launch the Algerian satellites ALSAT-2A and ALSAT-2B -- which have US components on board an Indian space launch vehicle -- comes after the signing of the Technical Safe Guards Agreement (TSA) between the US and India during US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's recent visit to the country."Now that the clearance has been given, we plan to launch the Algerian satellites from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre by the end of the year or early next year if the weather permits," ISRO spokesperson S Satish.He added that the space agency's main priority is to launch the Oceansat- 2 in September followed by the GSAT-4 onboard the GSLV in Octobe or November.The TSA gives an opportunity for the launch of foreign built non-commercial satellite and not the heavy commercial ones which will require India and the US to sign the commercial space launch agreement (CSLA) which is likely to be signed between India and the US during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh visit to Washington next month.ISRO will also launch the Swiss Cube, a mini satellite built by Swiss students later this year; which will be launched by PSLV. The project manager of the Satellite project Muriel Noca along with the Swiss Astronaut Prof Claude Nicollier are currently touring Indian cities, including Bangalore.The primary objective of developing this satellite is to provide a dynamic and realistic learning environment for our staff in the development of small satellite technology, said Noca.
ЦитатаIndia Mars mission to be launched between 2013 and 2015 www.chinaview.cn 2009-08-31 16:43:12 NEW DELHI, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- A day after its lunar mission was abandoned, India's state-run space agency Monday said that it will launch its first mission to Mars sometime between 2013 and 2015. "We have given a call for proposal to different scientific communities. Depending on the type of experiments they propose, we will be able to plan the mission. The mission is at conceptual stage and will be taken up after Chandrayaan-2. Once in two years you get an opportunity for the mission," Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Chairman G. Madhavan Nair told local media in Panaji, capital of the western state of Goa. India Sunday formally called off the Chandrayaan-1 moon mission, with the ISRO losing its radio contact with the craft. "There was no possibility of retrieving it. (But) it was a great success. We could collect a large volume of data, including more than 70,000 images of the moon. In that sense, 95 percent of the objective was completed," Nair said when announcing the formal abandoning of the mission. Editor: Zhang Xiang

ЦитатаISRO preparing for GSAT 4 launch in two months(Source: IANS)Published: Sat, 19 Sep 2009 at 16:04 IST: While the preparations for launch of India's ocean monitoring satellite Oceansat 2 and six other nano satellites Sep 23 is on, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is getting ready for the bigger launch slated in the next two months -- that of the communications satellite GSAT 4. Speaking to IANS over phone from ISRO's launch centre at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh, M.Y.S. Prasad, associate director, Satish Dhawan Space Centre said: "Preparations are already on for the launch of GSAT 4 -- the communication satellite using the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV). The rocket assembling process has started." The first stage of GSLV with four strap-on motors has been assembled and assembling of the second stage is to start soon. The third stage -- cryogenic stage -- will come from ISRO's Thiruvananthapuram facility, he said. "GSLV will blast off from the second launch pad with its third stage fitted with an India built cryogenic engine thereby making the country absolutely self reliant in building the bigger rocket," S. Sathish, ISRO's director of publications and public relations, told IANS over phone from Bangalore. For all the five earlier GSLV missions, ISRO had used Russian cryogenic engines. Last December, the indigenously developed cryogenic upper stage engine passed the flight acceptance test with the engine tested for 200 seconds. The development of cryogenic engines involves mastering materials technology, operating rotary pumps and turbines which run at 42,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). Weighing around two tonnes, GSAT 4 will carry a multi-beam Ka-band bent pipe and regenerative transponder and navigation payload in C, L1 and L5 bands. The satellite can guide civil and military aircraft. GSAT 4 will also carry a scientific payload, TAUVEX, comprising three ultra violet band telescopes developed by Tel Aviv University and Israel space agency (ELOP) for surveying a large part of the sky in the 1,400-3,200 A wavelengths.
ЦитатаSRIHARIKOTA, September 23, 2009Challenges ahead for ISROT. S. Subramanian Although the PSLV-C14 mission on Wednesday was a success proving the vehicle's maturity again, there were challenges ahead for the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), according to K. Radhakrishnan, Director, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Thiruvananthapuram. These included launching a Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV-D3) with an indigenous cryogenic stage from Sriharikota in December 2009 and the PSLV-C15 ahead of December.The GSLV-D3's launch would be "a landmark in indigenous technology," Dr. Radhakrishnan said. It would put a communication satellite called GSAT-4 in orbit. The first stage of the GSLV-D3 had already moved to Sriharikota. Its indigenous cryogenic stage would undergo tests at the Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre at Mahendragiri in Tamil Nadu. Then it would be moved to Sriharikota and integrated with the other stages, and the flight would take place in December. The PSLV-C15 would put Cartosat-2B in orbit. On reports about NASA's Moon Mineralogy Mapper on board Chandrayaan-1 locating water ice on the moon, ISRO Chairman, G. Madhavan Nair, said, "I cannot confirm at the moment. May be, at the end of the week, I will let you know." He said the Moon Mineralogy Mapper had covered 97 per cent of the moon's surface. Asked how the ISRO had underestimated the radiation levels in the moon's environment which had baked Chandrayaan-1's components and led to the spacecraft's premature death, Mr. Madhavan Nair asserted that the ISRO was "100 per cent satisfied with the mission's objectives." Chandrayaan-1 had performed as per its design. There were hostile factors in the space above the moon. Radiation levels were high. There were charged particles. So the power monitors on board Chandrayaan-1 were affected. The inputs from this mission would be kept in mind when ISRO sent more spacecraft to the moon. He called Chandrayaan-1 "a dead object going round the moon." It would slowly come down over a period of 1000 days and then crash on the moon. ISRO had completed the preliminary design of Chandrayaan-2, which would boast of a lander-cum-rover. The rover would go about on the moon and pick up lunar samples, which would be analysed in situ. The launch of Chandrayaan-2 would take place in 2012-13, Mr. Madhavan Nair said.
ЦитатаIn Dec, IIT-K's little Jugnu to find its place in skyKautilya SinghThe Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has finally given the green signal for the launch of the Nano satellite Jugnu -- the dream project of the Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur (IIT-K). The nod comes after a second design review was presented by the IIT-K authorities. The satellite will be launched in the Polar Orbit from Sriharikota in December 2009. Sanjay Govind Dhande, the Director of IIT-K, said: "Though the Memorandum of Understanding between ISRO and IIT-K for the project was signed in February, regular review sessions are being carried out by ISRO to check the progress of the ambitious project." The first review session of the Nano was carried out by ISRO in April. "On Tuesday, our technical team working on the project apprised the ISRO authorities through video conferencing about the Release Mechanism and Antenna Mechanism," said Dhande.
ЦитатаNavy to get dedicated communication satelliteAdvertisementSTAFF WRITER 17:58 HRS ISTNew Delhi, Oct 22 (PTI) Navy will get a dedicated satellite for making its communication robust and secure and to also propel its network-centric operations and connectivity at sea, Defence Minister A K Antony said today."The Navy's efforts towards network centric operations and leveraging information technology are laudable.The launch of the Naval Communication Satellite next year will significantly improve connectivity at sea," Antony said, inaugurating the the Navy Senior Officers Conference here.The satellite, being built by ISRO, would be on a geo-stationary orbit and would provide an overview of about 600 to 1,000 nautical miles of the Indian Ocean Region (IOR), which India considers to be its primary area of responsibility in terms of maritime security.
ЦитатаIndia set to join exclusive cryogenic clubOctober 27th, 2009 - 2:31 pm ICT by IANS - By Venkatachari JagannathanChennai, Oct 27 (IANS) After its maiden moon mission, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is hoping to cross another milestone in December - take India into the exclusive club of countries that have developed their own cryogenic engines to power satellites in space.ISRO is hoping to end 2009 in style with the take-off of its fully indigenous geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) carrying an experimental satellite GSAT 4 in mid-December.The GSLV-D3 will have an indigenously built cryogenic engine that will be used for the first time in the rocket's upper stage. The GSLV-D3 is slated to be launched from ISRO's spaceport Sriharikota, about 80 km northeast of Chennai, to carry the GSAT-4 communication satellite into a geo-stationary orbit, about 36,000 km above the earth. The 49-metre-tall rocket will have a lift-off weight of 414 tonnes.Only a few countries like the US, Russia, France, Japan and China have developed their own cryogenic engines and India is expected to join this club.For all the five earlier GSLV missions, ISRO had used Russian cryogenic engines."The cryogenic engine reached Sriharikota early this month from ISRO's facility in Mahendragiri in Tamil Nadu. The GSAT 4 communication satellite is expected to reach here by the middle of next month. Final tests are being done at Bangalore where it was built," M.Y.S. Prasad, associate director, Satish Dhawan Space Centre, told IANS on phone from ISRO's launch centre at Sriharikota.He said the physical inspection of the cryogenic stage is on and the engine's sensors are to be calibrated. It will be fuelled by liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen.While GSLVs with Russian cryogenic engines have been designated as operational rockets after two developmental flights, the one that will go up in December is called 'developmental flight 32 (GSLV D3) as it will be fired by the ISRO-developed cryogenic engine.The last GSLV went up on Sep 2, 2007, carrying the 2,130 kg INSAT-4CR satellite.Speaking about how far the three-stage rocket had been assembled, Prasad said: "The first stage -- solid fuel booster and four strap-on motors -- has been assembled. The assembly of the second stage liquid engine is under progress and will be over in one and a half weeks. The last stage is the cryogenic stage."Last December, the indigenously developed cryogenic upper stage engine passed the flight acceptance test with the engine tested for 200 seconds.The development of cryogenic engines involves mastering materials technology, operating rotary pumps and turbines which run at 42,000 revolutions per minute (RPM).The development of a cryogenic engine is crucial for ISRO to build more powerful GSLV rockets that can carry four-tonne satellites.Further, ISRO is lagging behind in launching its GSAT series for want of a cryogenic engine. GSAT 4 was supposed to have gone up two years back.Weighing around two tonnes, GSAT 4 will carry a multi-beam Ka-band bent pipe and regenerative transponder and navigation payload in C, L1 and L5 bands. The satellite can guide civil and military aircraft.GSAT 4 will also carry a scientific payload, TAUVEX, comprising three ultra violet band telescopes developed by Tel Aviv University and Israel space agency (ELOP) for surveying a large part of the sky in the 1,400-3,200 Angstrom wavelengths.The GSLV rocket will place GSAT 4 in the geo transfer orbit (GTO) from where the satellite will be taken up to an altitude of 36,000 km and then positioned.According to Prasad, ISRO is gearing up to launch six rockets per year and has created a huge liquid fuel storing facility for that purpose at Sriharikota.

ЦитатаISRO Plans 36 Launches During 11th Planby Staff WritersThiruvananthapuram, India (PTI) Nov 30, 2009ISRO is planning 36 launches during the 11th plan with more than six a year, a top space official said here today.The expanding horizon of the Indian Space Programme, with more number of launches annually and missions like reusable launch vehicle on the anvil, calls for increased productivity with consistent quality and at a competitive cost, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre Director P S Veeraraghavan said.Partnership with aerospace Indian industries was likely to grow multifold with the expanding activities of Indian Space Programme and ISRO's foray into International Space market, Veeraghavan told a 'National Aerospace Manufacturing Seminar'.Presently more than 500 small and medium industries partnered with ISRO, he said.Stating that the aerospace industry faces tough challenges, he said it should adapt to advanced manufacturing methodologies to suit the design function flawlessly.Source: Press Trust of India
ЦитатаISRO To Launch 8 Foreign Satellitesby Staff WritersBangalore, India (PTI) Dec 01, 2009India's space agency has in its pipeline eight foreign satellites for launch and is scouting to acquire such spacecraft from abroad to expand capacity in the field of communication transponder back home."Today, we have eight (foreign) satellites to be launched. This will be launched over the next two-three years", Managing Director of Antrix Corporation, marketing arm of Bangalore headquartered Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), KR Sridhara Murthi, said.These are a mix of small and bigger satellites, he said but declined to elaborate, noting that the space agency is yet to formally ink some of these contracts.But one foreign satellite that is being readied for launch is a 150-kg one from Algeria, which is slated to be launched by home-grown Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle as a piggyback payload likely in April next year.Sridhara Murthi said ISRO is looking for opportunities to acquire foreign satellites.In fact, it, along with its global partners, recently unsuccessfully bid to acquire a satellite, which was put up for auctioning by a company facing bankruptcy, in the United States.Intelsat won the bid with a price of USD 210 million.ISRO was ready to shell out USD 100 million for part of the capacity that it intended to use, Sridhara Murthi said.ISRO's bold move is a sign of its growing confidence, he said.ISRO has also started integrating Hylas spacecraft, a contract it jointly bagged with EADS-Astrium, and it would be delivered to the customer, UK-based Avanti Screenmedia, in June.Under the contract, EADS-Astrium is the prime contractor in charge of overall programme management and would build the communications payload, while Antrix/ISRO would build the satellite with a lift-off mass of around 2.5 tonnes and power of 3.2 KW."This year we are producing a very sophisticated high definition television satellite (Hylas)-- probably for the first time in the world", he said.ISRO is looking to further scale up the participation of industries in space projects and even mulling to outsource some research and development tasks to them."Nearly 400 industries take part in space programme today", he said, noting for example that industries now undertake 70 per cent of work on developing launch vehicles (rockets)."So, when (Indian) rocket is a success, it's not merely ISRO which has to take credit, it is also a large number of industries which have to take credit", Sridhara Murthi said.In addition, as of March this year, ISRO had transferred 289 technologies to modern industries for commercialisation and provided 270 technical consultancies in different disciplines of space technology.ISRO endeavours to develop technologies with industries. "In the years to come, even for R and D tasks, ISRO will depend more and more on industries".Sridhara Murthi also spoke about the profitability of space business. Antix today has an annual revenue of over Rs 1,000 crore."Each satellite can pay for itself including the cost of launching. If you take a communication satellite, probably we spend about Rs 300 crore to launch one satellite. But, typically, this can pay back Rs 800 crore to Rs 1,000 crore over a period of its life"."If we look at the value chain of space activities, if we invest one rupee in space, there is ten rupee business on ground", he said.
