U R Rao Satellite Centre (URSC), Bangalore is the prime agency for realising satellites for the Indian Space program. The Indian Satellite program has been built around the theme of providing technology solutions to Indian Society. With the ever expanding role of satellite technology in day-to-day life of Indian citizens, the demand for satellites has grown over the last decade. This is reflected in growing number the number of satellites launched over the past 10 years. URSC has met these demands of the country through internal resources and also by involving Indian Industry in various spheres of satellite elements realisation. As the new thrust is to bring technology closer to people, satellites have a large role to contribute in the technological growth and of the Indian economy.

To tap into this demand for satellite services, URSC has anticipated a requirement of around 71 satellites till 2021. This translates to around 12 satellites per year. The estimated number of satellite elements required is also correspondingly large. URSC is now looking for Indian Industry to support it in realisation of different hardware. URSC plans to increase its outsourcing to industry in tandem with the growing satellite requirements. Industry stands to benefit with exposure to cutting-edge technology, best reliability practices and importantly through improved manufacturing and quality standards.

URSC and Indian Industry stand to gain by engaging with each other and making the dream of self-reliant Indian Space Program a reality.
