Reusable Satellite Launch Vehicle In ISRO’s 10-Year Plan

Development of a heavy-lift rocket, reusable satellite launch vehicle, semi-cryogenic engine

Stepping into 2021, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has chalked out its decadal plan which includes the development of a heavy-lift rocket, reusable satellite launch vehicle, semi-cryogenic engine, and others said a top official.

In the short term, the space agency has to realize the first developmental flight of the Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) operational Geo-Imaging capability, the third moon mission Chandrayaan-3, the first solar mission Aditya-L1, and the first Indian Data Relay Satellite.

“The first unmanned flight under the Gaganyaan Programme is another significant milestone to be achieved this year,” ISRO Chairman K. Sivan, who is also Secretary, Department of Space, ISRO said.

In his New Year message, he said all the centers/units of ISRO have actively contributed to the formulation of the decadal plan.

Sivan said: “In this decade, the VSSC (Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre), the lead center for space transportation systems, will carry forward its competence in launch vehicle development towards heavy lift capabilities, achieving partial & full reusability and achieving progress in scramjet engine research.”

According to Sivan, the Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre (LPSC) will fructify the much-awaited high thrust semi-cryogenic propulsion capability, which is expected to boost the lifting capability of Indian rockets to Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) to almost 5.5 ton while also focusing on liquid oxygen (oxidizer)-Methane propulsion, green propulsion as well as electric propulsion.

He also said ISRO Propulsion Complex (IPRC) needs to gear up its test facilities to support the qualification of the new propulsion systems and also expand its integration facilities to realize the new semi-cryogenic and LOX/Methane engines.

“In the next decade, emphasis will be on satellite constellation for broadband communication, all-electric satellite platform,s and high-performance satellite platforms in all the application areas,” Sivan said as regards the decadal plans for the U.R. Rao Satellite Centre (URSC).

In this decade, SAC and the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) need to work towards ensuring the collection, processing, and on-demand delivery of satellite data services in line with user expectations.

As regards the rocket port under the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) scaling up of the launch infrastructure to support human spaceflight as well as new heavy-lift vehicles and perhaps support and facilitate the launching of private space transportation systems in the country, Sivan said.

The Semi-Conductor Laboratory SCL will work towards creating a strong micro-electronics base in the country and enhance capabilities in the Very Large Scale Integrated circuit (VLSI) domain.

“A lion’s share of ISRO’s technology development & advanced R&D activities is expected to be carried out for facilitating the Gaganyaan (human space mission) program and sustaining the human spaceflight activities in the long term,” Sivan added.

On its part, the Human Space Flight Centre (HSFC), in association with all other ISRO centers, is working towards the enhanced capabilities essential for the human spaceflight program including the human-rated launch vehicle, Orbital Module, rendezvous and docking, regenerative life support systems and space habitats, Sivan added.
