Announcement of Opportunities for NGPEs
In order to have smooth interaction with industries and handhold them to develop new technologies, an ISRO-industry interface mechanism will be established. Through this mechanism, ISRO will share its experiences on quality and reliability protocols, documentation, testing procedures etc.
ISRO will also identify areas to offer challenges to industries in new domains of technology. The shortlisted proposals will be promoted for part funding by the government through established channels. Announcement of opportunity for selected science and exploration missions to private industries will also be carried out through this mechanism. The industries will be encouraged and nurtured through this mechanism to reach the global levels of technology. This will enable them to compete for a larger share in the global space market.
In specific cases, proof-of-concept demonstration for new devices will be carried out by ISRO and industries will be roped-in, through NSIL, for mass production.
