    India has emerged as a global space power with launching satellites & rockets at globally low costs.
    – NSIL was set up to meet the increasing demands of Indian space programme & to commercially exploit the emerging global space market.

    – ANTRIX – commercial arm of ISRO.

    Mandate of NSIL:

    Small satellite technology transfer to industry.
    – Manufacture of SSLV in collaboration with private sector.
    – Productionisation of Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) through Indian Industry
    – Productionisation and marketing of Space based products and services, including launch and application
    – Transfer of technology developed by ISRO

    Space for private sector:
    – 40 rockets would be needed (30 PSLV + 10 GSLV ) in next 3 years. 59 satellites planned costing – Rs. 104 billion – Private sector participation.
    – Limited public funding.
    – ISRO has limited resources – capital, skill, manpower (60,000) – can free up resources to take up other important projects – Space stations, Gaganyaan, Chandrayaan -3, Aditya – L1
    – DTH – Video market – we barely cover 50% of Indian market: Need of transponders for communication satellites.
    – Launch vehicle – $25bn market ahead, Satellite manufacture & applications market.

    Private sector involvement in Space:
    – ISRO has used private sector to its greatest extent: from 1/2 dozen satellite – 3 dozen satellites & launches in decade.
    – Steel supply from Private sector – SAIL
    – IRNSS 1H & 1I built by private sector: used in navigation.
    – ECIL: Ground tracking system for Chandrayaan I
    – liquid engines & cryogenic – Godrej & MTAR

    – Alpha design, Tata (TSL), BEL – partnering ISRO for Assembly, integration, testing for 23 satellites next 3 yrs.

    Challenges for private sector:
    – Private sector don't feel confident of the ROI.
    – No Space policy

    Way Forward:
    – More partnership needed : to fill the gap & help ISRO develop technology.
    – Legal framework should develop too.

    – Private sector have participation, what we need is their consolidation.
    – Give way to Startups in space: ispace in China, a private firm launched its first satellite in orbit.
    – Comprehensive approach in building satellites, launching satellites, Space ports development – Infrastructure development & production capabilities.

    Opportunity for space entrepreneurs is massive & their involvement is a key to effectively utilize & enhance ISRO's space power.
