According to reports, Dr. Singh said during the inauguration ceremony of the “ISRO System for Safe & Sustainable Operation” at ISRO’s Control Centre in Bengaluru, that around 60 Start-Up companies have allegedly registered with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for “unlocking” of the Indian Space sector by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Some of those companies associated with the Indian Space sector are dealing with projects related to Space debris management.

Dr. Singh stated that along with private Start-Ups India’s Department of Space can work in the domains of space transportation, debris management, infrastructure, and applications. He added that the IS4OM facility will also help in accomplishing Space Situational Awareness (SSA) goals by monitoring, and tracking detailed and timely information about the Space environment to provide protection.  The hi-tech monitoring system will continue providing efficient information on on-orbit collision, fragmentation, atmospheric re-entry risk, space-based strategic information, hazardous asteroids, and space weather forecast.

According to reports ISRO will be taking safety measures to protect Space assets from intentional and accidental approaches of space objects including operational aircraft or objects such as space debris. The SSA will also ensure on-time monitoring and detection of operational aircraft passing over Indian regions.

ISRO will actively protect Indian satellites and other in-orbit equipments from space debris in the association of international participants. Dr. Singh further informed that ISRO is an active member of Inter-Agency Space Debris Coordination Committee (IDAC), IAF Space Debris Working Group, IAA Space Traffic Management Working Group, ISO Space Debris Working Group, and UNCOPUOS, with a vision of long-term sustainability in space debris study and space environment.
