The space programme in India is witnessing an increase in the
number of missions. Towards achieving shorter turnaround time for
realising these missions, ISRO has been encouraging wider
participation of the industries through technology transfer,
technology utilisation, industry cooperation and vendor
development. This has started giving rich benefits to SAC/ISRO,
in terms of industry significantly contributing in all the
spheres of space endeavours in the country.
Indian space industry, over the past several years, has made
significant foray in the field of telecommunications,
broadcasting, remote sensing and applications of space technology
i.e. tele-medicine and tele-education.
Association of more than 300 small, medium and large scale
industries with SAC is a result of gradual nurturing of industry
partnership over the past years. Active cooperation in the form
of know-how transfers, technical consultancy and vendor
development has enabled SAC to meet the increasing challenges in
realising the payloads.
