Speaking at the FICCI India Leads-2021 Conference here, he said India has gained international recognition for launching lunar missions, building satellites, transporting foreign satellites and reaching Mangalias for several years in a row. .
According to Dr. Jitndra Singh, space industry has become one of the most profitable industries in the world in the last few years and nano, micro and small satellites and reusable and small satellite launch systems are designed to drive the market. ISRO said it is working closely with a number of industry organizations, both public and private, to implement the space projects. By contributing to the development of state-of-the-art technology and international search missions, ISIO has made significant contributions to achieving operational missions and new locations such as satellite navigation.
Dr. Jetendra Singh said India’s rise to prominence in the international community is a matter of pride for India. He added that the world today is captivated by Chandrayan, Mars missions and the coming Gaganians.
Since his appointment as Prime Minister, Dr. Jetendra Singh Narendra Modi has said that Indian space technology has been being implemented in various fields and sectors to bring “comfort” to various people. He said space and satellite technology are being widely used today to name a few in railway, road and bridge construction, agriculture, soil, water resources, forestry and ecology, housing, telemedics, disaster management and accurate weather forecasting.
Citing the upcoming India-Oceania Space Technology Partnership, Dr. Jetendra Singh India is set to become the hub for a small satellite launch market, estimated at $ 38 billion by 2027. Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, have new capabilities in the design and production of high-performance nano- and micro-satellites, including high-performance optics, radio communication systems, optical communication systems and ship data management. He said other Oceania countries, such as New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, could work with India and jointly develop and identify space technology solutions and innovative products to explore partnerships and collaborations. He said there is an opportunity to work together on joint projects in some areas of the two regions and create an environment for better participation of academia, industry and start-up communities. He said such partnerships could help international defense companies expand their businesses.
Dr. Jetendra Singh said Australia is a world leader in the use of remote sensing technologies, adding that India and Oceania can co-operate in regular training courses in both regions and share best practices in this technology. He said Australia and India have been partners since 1987 with Indian satellites to support data measurement and laser noise, launch Australian satellites and conduct joint research. He also noted that the Australian Space Agency was working closely with ISRO on India’s first man-made mission to accelerate the deployment of temporary land surveillance facilities in Australia.
As an initiative to expand its international reach, India has signed various Cooperation Agreements and MoUs with other countries and organizations, Dr. Jitndra Singh said. He said the areas of cooperation are mainly land surveying, aerial space radar, marine domain awareness, satellite communication, launch services, space exploration, space law and capacity building.
According to Dr. Jitndra Singh, the Indian Space Industry has some major discoveries, such as India’s first space observation, ASTROSAT has been in place for four years and has more than 900 registered users from 24 countries. Launching a successful record setting in 2017 is a big milestone in 2017. On one rocket, India’s most powerful launch vehicle, the GSLV-MK III, launched in July 2019 capable of launching 4 tons of satellites into the Geosinoconium Transmitter (GTO). . The country has been rewarded – 109 space shuttle missions, 77 launch missions, 10 student satellites, 2 re-entry missions and 319 foreign satellites.
