ISRO’s business arm, NSIL begins search for PSLV makers


Bengaluru: NewSpace India Limited (NSIL) on Friday launched a formal search for industry consortia which can manufacture and deliver entire PSLV satellite launch vehicles to the Indian Space Research Organisation.

It will initially outsource five PSLVs — Indian rockets that can lift light payloads to ‘low earth orbits’ some 600 km in space.

A pre-bid meeting of potential parties has been called by NSIL on August 26.

The four-stage PSLV is needed to place both Indian remote sensing satellites and small satellites of foreign customers to space.

NSIL was formed in March 2019 to promote Indian space commerce.
