In a release, the Prime Minister’s Office said that ISPA is a premier industry association of space and satellite companies, which aspires to be the collective voice of the Indian space industry. “It will advocate the policy and engage with all stakeholders in the Indian space sector, including the government and its agencies,” it said.
Many missions affected due to COVID-19
The founding members of ISPA include Larsen & Toubro, Nelco (Tata Group), OneWeb, Bharti Airtel, MapmyIndia, Walchandnagar Industries and Anant Technology Limited. Other prominent members include Godrej, Hughes India, Agista-BST Aerospace Pvt Ltd, BEL, Centum Electronics and Maxar India. India has made great progress in the field of space research in the last few years. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has also carried out several launches, although COVID-19 has affected the schedule of some of these space missions.
Gaganyaan mission also by the end of 2022
According to senior ISRO officials, the country’s first solar mission, which was being extended from early 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is likely to be launched in the third quarter of 2022. The agency will also launch India’s second space observatory, Exposat, next year. Before the pandemic, the space agency had planned 20 launches in the financial year 2020-21, including the first unmanned flight under the Gaganyaan mission. The Gaganyaan mission is also likely to start by the end of 2022 or early 2023.
