Industrialization

Industry is back-bone for any launch vehicle or satellite programme. ISRO over a period of time has developed and qualified industries in various areas viz. materials, mechanical, chemical, electronics and instrumentation, testing and calibration. Since the space industry is growing at a fast rate, multiple parties for supplying volumes and new sources for indegenised items are being developed by ISRO. Few areas where infrastructure is high and industry is not prepared to absorb the cost, ISRO is planning to establish the facilities and operate them on GOCO (Government Owned and Company Operate) basis to sustain the programmes.
