The Construction Of An 'Indian Space Station' Is No Distant Dream - Says ISRO Chairman
No, it's not a futuristic utopia as ISRO Chief A S
Kumar expresses his heartfelt desire to build the Indian Space Station with the help of Indian Govt. On the foundation day celebration of Raja
Center for Advanced Technology (RRCAT) at Indore, the chief implied that India was not short of resources to develop its very own space station but the project must be supported with a long-term approach and a well-constructed, futuristic plan. His speech, touched theÂ
record-breaking launch of 104 satellites
Â in one go using PSLV by ISRO, last week.Slide4
Coming back to his hopeful words, it must be noticed that he highlighted India as one of the strongest space research hubs and as reported by many of the third party sites,Slide5
Our vision is to harness space technology for national development, while pursuing space science research and planetary exploration.
Story of the Week : The Unique Triumph of PSLV-C37
On February 15, 2017, PSLV-C37, the 39thÂ mission of the workhorse launch vehicle of ISRO, injected ISROâs Cartosat-2 Series Satellite weighing 714 kg and two ISRO
-satellites namely INS-1A (8.4 kg) & INS-1B (9.7 kg) and 101
-satellites, from six foreign countries into a Sun-Synchronous Orbit (SSO) at an orbit of 506 km above earth, with an inclination of 97.46Â°. The mass of
-satellites varied from 1 to 10 kg. The total weight of all the 104 satellites carried on-board PSLV-C37 was 1378 kg.Slide6
India's Space Policy
The fundamental aim of the Policy Frame-work for Satellite Communications in IndiaÂ approved by the Cabinet is to develop a healthy and thriving communications satelliteÂ and ground equipment industry as well as satellite communications service industry inÂ India. Also, use and further development of the capabilities built in India in the area ofÂ satellites, launch vehicles and ground equipment design and sustaining these capabilitiesÂ is an equally important aim. Making available the infrastructure built through INSAT to aÂ larger segment of the economy and population is another corner stone of the Policy.Â Encouraging the private sector investment in the space industry in India and attractingÂ foreign investments in this area are other specific goals. The norms, guidelines andÂ procedures have been evolved so as to help reach these aims and goals.ÂSlide7
The Frame-work for Satellite Communication Policy in India as approved byÂ Government in 1997 is as follows:
INSAT capacity to be leased to non-government (IndianÂ and foreign) parties following certain well defined norms.
Â Allow Indian parties to provide services including TV
Â through Indian Satellites, subject to certain terms and conditionsÂ which are to be spelt out.
Indian Administration in consultation with Department ofÂ Space and other concerned regulatory authorities to inform, notify,Â co-ordinate and register satellite systems and networks by and forÂ Indian private parties following certain well defined and transparentÂ norms. The satellite systems of all Government agencies to beÂ established by Department of Space.Â
(a) Operation from Indian soil with foreign satellites may beÂ allowed only in special cases to be notified. These may be in the case ofÂ overseas services using international inter-governmental systems,Â systems owned and operated by Indian Parties but registered in otherÂ countries before rules for registrations have been formulated in India,Â international private systems where there is a substantial IndianÂ participation by way of equity or in kind contribution and whereÂ considered necessary reciprocal arrangements could be worked outÂ with the country/countries of registration or ownership
(b) While operations from Indian soil may be allowed with bothÂ Indian and foreign Satellites, proposals envisaging use of the IndianÂ satellites will be accorded preferential treatment.Â
(c) Satellite broadcasting including Direct to Home (DTH) TVÂ broadcasting, may be licensed by the Licensing AuthorityÂ constituted under the relevant statute, on Indian SatelliteÂ
Systems or any other satellite system, excepting thoseÂ prohibited for the purpose by the competent authority, notifiedÂ by the Central Government in this regard, on technical orÂ
security considerations. In cases where operations of servicesÂ with foreign satellites are licensed, the Licensing Authority atÂ the time of renewal or re-issue of licenses for these services,Â will require the licensee to opt for the Indian Satellite SystemÂ subject to availability of capacity which meets the requirementÂ of the service.Â Â
(d) Department of Space should ensure that the various provisionsÂ of the Policy would conform to the proposed BroadcastingÂ Law.
Suitably take into account the above policy in the regulations and theÂ laws that may be evolved in the telecommunications and broadcastingÂ sectors.Â
