Bangalore, July 21: Finding it increasingly expensive to send satellites into space through foreign agencies, Indian Space agency, ISRO, is mulling cost cutting by launching lighter satellites with lesser payloads through its own launchers.

Bangalore, July 21: Finding it increasingly expensive to send satellites into space through foreign agencies, Indian Space agency, ISRO, is mulling cost cutting by launching lighter satellites with lesser payloads through its own launchers.
Distributing the payloads over several satellites and having a series of launches conducted by Isro itself would be a better alternative than to go in for costlier multi-payload satellite launches like the INSAT series through foreign agencies, Indian Space Research Organisation sources said.

Isro, sources said, was now considering this alternative which could be applied over the next few years involving single payload lighter satellites.

Isro has already developed its capability to launch satellites onboard the polar synchronous satellite launch vehicle, which has successfully launched one Indian and four foreign satellites.
