Overview

The Indian space programme has been pursuing a systematic and well defined policy for transfer of know-how of products / technologies developed by the Indian Space Centres. The objectives have been manifold, viz., to facilitate greater participation of Indian industries in various space projects, their applications in the commercial domain and to take benefit of 'spin-offs' of such technologies. Implementation of this policy has yielded substantial results in terms of gearing up significant industrial participation in the space programme through provision of various products and services by industry relevant to applications involving space systems such as satellites, communications, broadcasting, meteorological services and geospatial information services, as well as the technology transfer from ISRO.
