Ya'll Nibbiars GISAT-1 & RISAT-2BR2 recon satellites that would've helped in surveillance of borders if they were in orbit. GISAT-1 was to be launched in March 5. Reports show GISAT-1 being readied for launch. The other 3 satellites are about to be shipped to SHAR.

Are there any launch planned for remaining part of this year. I see it highly improbable to have any launch this year in current scenarios.

Microsat-2A is also ready for launch. I think this satellite will be used for testing new technologies.

As time is passing on, launching Gaganyaan in August 2022 is looking unrealistic to me unless we cancel or hold every other project for the time being.

2 unmanned launches for human rating of LVM3. Then, 2 launches for IDRSS-1 & 2 satellites which are necessary for 24 x 7 communication with astronauts and can't be skipped. This sums up total 5 launches of GSLV Mk3 necessary till August 2022. They will have to do all other ground experiments too within time frame.

Over that, theh have planned Chandrayaan-3 in March next year, Astrosat-2 and Aditya-L1 in upcoming year, Shukrayaan-1 is not only expected but deadlined for 2023. So, they will be giving their time for that too from 2021. Over that, they have to launch foreign satellites and country's own general use satellites too.
I'm wondering how they are going to do it.

India-Japan moon mission: Isro forms study group.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro), which is working on its second Moon landing mission — Chandrayaan-3 — for next year, has now formed a study group for another moon mission along with Japan.

The India-Japan mission, a joint initiative between Isro and Japanese space agency JAXA, was in the cold storage as Isro was focusing on its own moon and human missions. Senior scientists have now confirmed to TOI that it is back on the space agency’s agenda.

As part of the mission, Japan will be launching a joint lunar mission — Lunar Polar Exploration (LPE) — and as details shared by JAXA, the mission will be launched after 2023 and will involve a lander and a rover.

JAXA diagrams show that the Japanese would be building the overall landing module and the rover, while Isro would develop the lander system.

The mission will be launched from Japan, and the designated launch vehicle is the H3 rocket, manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

“What we will design for the Indo-Japan mission will be subject to how the systems on Chandrayaan-3 will perform and whether or not we will be able to achieve a successful landing next year. Earlier this month, we got an internal communication about the study group, which means that the project is back on track,” an Isro scientist said.

The first thinking of this mission was made public in 2017, during a multi-space agencies’ meeting in Bengaluru and it was then also part of the inter-governmental discussions during PM Narendra Modi’s visit to Japan in 2018. The TOI had reported in September 2019, that the project had since moved forward and both agencies were keen on landing on Moon together.

According to JAXA, analysis of observational data suggests the existence of water in the polar regions of Moon. “…JAXA is working with Isro to plan an international collaborative mission to obtain data on the quantity and forms of water resources present, in order to determine the feasibility of utilizing such resources for sustainable space exploration activities in the future,” JAXA said.

The mission’s aim is to obtain actual data regarding the quantity of water from in-situ observations of areas where water is anticipated to exist, based on the available past observational data. It also seeks to understand the distribution, conditions, form and other parameters of the lunar water resources in the polar regions.

The TOI had reported in June about how the project intends to improve the technology needed to explore the surface of low-gravity celestial bodies in order to support future lunar activities. “These advancements include technology for mobility, lunar night survival and mining excavation,” JAXA added.

LMAO what is the isro contribution except 50% funding ,they can do much better.

Since when the flight to the Moon costs cheaper than produce the film? The upcoming Indian mission Chandrayaan-2 is cheaper than Hollywood's 2014 movie Interstellar...

Chandrayaan-2 isn't upcoming, it's already realised. Chandrayaan-3 is due for launch in March 2021.

Y'll Nibbiars ISRO's GSAT-30 is so far the only Indian satellite launched this year. It was launched by an Ariane-5 rocket with another European satellite. In 2019, 8 Indian satellites were launched. A similar number was planned for 2020, then Kung Flu Virus arrived. Next launch will be in Nov/Dec 20.

Slides from VSSC director.
Notable, a new RLV-ORV (GSLV mounted RLV)
A new rocket called "test vehicle" to validate VTVL,

Heavy lift launchers with capacity of 20-30 tonnes to LEO; Super heavy lift rocket with cap. 130 tonnes to LEO (Saturn-V equivalent)

Nuclear propulsion

Manned missions to moon and mars.

HLV booster design is similar to SpaceX falcon. If you notice there are legs on the bottom. And that's why payload capacity is low as it will carry more fuel for vertical landing.

This is a PPT using random pics of unrealised technologies for representational purpose from other countries. Design of space station or HLVs here is to be taken with a pinch of salt.
