My insight on ISRO

  1. 1. ISRO : A Great career ahead
  2. 2. What’s ISRO all about ?  In 1960’s , a common man like us thought of something brilliant across the wavelets of that time that involved the culture of space in it.  In the midst of the initial take off into the WORLD OF SPACE, it was DR. VIKRAM SARABHAI, who encouraged the masses to think of a visionary future for themselves, and for INDIA’s FUTURE GENERATION.
  3. 3.  The space activities in INDIA started in the 1960’s when the first advancements took place at THUMBA.  Now Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) was the first space station at trivandrum which gave a true and energetic insight into INDIA’s capability of a stronghold nation in Space development.  Thumba was primarily chosen because of the geographical conditions that favoured that area. It has the magnetic equator overhead which completely necessiated the visionaries to implent their ideas and dreams in this region.
  4. 4.  Thus, Indian Space programme born in the church beginning, space activities in the country, concentrated on achieving self reliance and developing capability to build and launch communication satellites for television broadcast, telecommunications and meteorological applications; remote sensing satellites for management of natural resources.
  5. 5. OBJECTIVE OF ISRO The objective of ISRO is to develop space technology and its application to various national tasks. Accordingly, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has successfully operationalised two major satellite systems namely Indian National Satellites (INSAT) for communication services and Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) satellites for management of natural resources. Also, Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) for launching IRS type of satellites and Geostationary Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) for launching INSAT type of satellites.
  6. 6. THUMBA Equatorial Rocket Launching Station, first started at the premises of St Mary Magdalene church, near Trivandrum
  8. 8. India’s first unmanned mission to moon : CHANDRAYAAN -1 was a big success for the ISRO and at the same time it opened doors for several budding engineers, scientists to go beyond their thinking and achieve great heights for the country. Many countries have thus followed suite and INDIA’s doing quite well on the space front now.
  9. 9. The Cutting EDGE that ISRO offers Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) was established in August 1969. The Government of India constituted the Space Commission and established the Department of Space (DOS) in June 1972 and brought ISRO under DOS in September 1972. The Space Commission formulates the policies and oversees the implementation of the Indian space programme to promote the development and application of space science and technology for the socio-economic benefit of the country. DOS implements these programmes through, mainly, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Physical Research Laboratory (PRL), National Atmospheric Research Laboratory (NARL), North Eastern-Space Applications Centre (NE-SAC) and Semi-Conductor Laboratory (SCL). The Antrix Corporation, established in 1992 as a government owned company, markets the space products and services.
  10. 10. The inspiration and the working environment itself offers the expertise in this career. There’s more to just a job as a scientist or an engineer at ISRO. ISRO selects motivated and enthusiastic engineers and other research scholars every year into its esteemed organisation to bring together a force which is interested in working with a mutual mindset and producing many achievements in the space arena.
  11. 11. The present chairman of ISRO, Dr. K. Radhakrishnan is brilliantly leading the organisation and hopes to see a more enthusiastic younger generation to come up and work with this esteemed organisation, of which he is very proud of.
  12. 12. The journey has been amazing so far. Its very clear and hopeful of the candidates that if they wish to explore such oppurtunities, they got to head to ISRO straight forward, so that, without any sort of reluctance they can follow their dreams, in which ISRO is bounded with them at every juncture. As an engineer and specifically being from a background that has specialized you in electronics and communication, there’s a lot that we all can do for ourselves and ISRO of course. The Journey
  13. 13. The options are never ending. There’s RADAR imaging, telecommunication related activities and other hitherto of this revolutionary field that ISRO is looking forward to. This is not just a job, its your career that leads you to a revolutionary era of having found yourself on the correct path and it leads you to work on major space projects and that too with organisations like NASA and other countries space organisations. The experience can surely tell it all. So its more about a passionate career, on the wheel of which ISRO has already had a great ride so far. CONCLUSION
  14. 14. THANK YOU
