This is a military program.. 😳
Yes, its a military-led program. However it also has civilian aspect to it, as the SSA data is shared with civilian agencies as well, toward the mutual benefit of not letting satellite collide in space.

To quote the USSTRATCOM commander at the time when JSpoC became CSpOC:

"Today’s establishment of the CSpOC is just the beginning, as our CSpOC family will continue to grow as we identify opportunities to work together with like-minded nations.”

From the wiki:

  • Commercial Integration Cell (CIC): integrates commercial space organizations, such as commercial satellite owners and operators, into the CSpOC, enabling greater communication between military and commercial space.
This is where the MoU with ISRO comes in.

Remember India was creating its own space fence. Any updates?

^ Still, some legitimate criticisms can be, and have been made, about ISRO's functioning.
No, there is no legitimate criticism or genuine reasoning involved. I'm all up for introspection but what has been going on is all around whinning along with display of zero knowledge and nil willingness to lean anything either.

Fence or Force :laugh:

I was imagining LoC type fence in space. :laugh::laugh:

You mean the Defence Space Agency (DSA). It's probably coming along just as slowly as everything else (Defence Cyber Agency, AFSOD, Theatre Commands etc.), if not much slower. No real updates to speak of.

Eventually though, SSA should be responsibility of the DSA.

It's quite irritating watching @RoaringTigerHiddenDragon and @SKC littering the thread.

If you guys don't have anything beyond this quality, why you don't restrict yourself to YouTube and FB comments whinning? There are plenty of video game addicted teenage SM warriors just like you with such quote quite such simple solutions for any sort of problems.

This thread was created for general "news & updates" and has bee found spammed by street stormers in 8 out of 10 notifications.
You are not happy with our comment. Fine!
But personal comments like this. Do you know us personally that you are putting such labels on us?

You are a mod here so we cant even argue with you, you will simply ban us and claim victory.

It would have been a personal attack if we were actually engaged in a meaningful discussion.

But since it has been over stubbornness, I'm just attacking your tone which I guarantee that any person in field too will only ridicule.
I don't like to make grudges for me into my friends. But the "criticism" which has been offered so far is of nil value.

It's upto you if you can handle criticism or offer anything to support assumptions.
You are a mod here so we cant even argue with you, you will simply ban us and claim victory.
This green label puts more restrictions as far as my words and conducts are concerned. So no, I don't ban people who are arguing with me. Not even those trolling or abusing me, leave alone you.

I will although clean thread again and again if it deviates from its purpose.
Regards

Bruh. Was talking about Space Fence similar to one operated by Muricans. Basically that radar network for SSA. To date, only news of Defence Space Agency I've heard are:-
1.) Defence Space Agency created.
2.) Defence Space Research Organization created.
3.) IndSpaceEx tabletop exercise conducted
4.) Looking at other space weapons apart from ASAT, like co-orbital killer sats.
And now
5.) Project Veda
.
Not sure if space fence is under ISRO or DSA.

Oh, actually never heard of that. only heard of the broader term SSA.

It will take nearly a decade to establish our own SSA network on par with what US has/will get.

Its nothing new
𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝘼𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙜𝙚𝙧🇮🇳 (@TheAvenger82) Tweeted:
The Indian Space Research Organisation is exploring the possibility of developing a next-generation astronomy satellite.

These proposals were from past 3 years atleast. These include a dedicated mission for exoplanets called "Exoworlds", UV observatory called "INSIST", Cosmic Microwave Background observatory called "CMB-Bharat" and few others

ISRO is considering developing a next-generation astronomical satellite to follow up on its AstroSat mission


ISRO’s first mission dedicated for astronomy, AstroSat, launched on 28 September 2015 with its design life of five years, on Tuesday completed six years of its operation. “It (AstroSat) is expected to last some more years”, A S Kiran Kumar who as the then Chairman of ISRO led the mission team, and is presently serving as the chair of the apex science committee at the space agency, told PTI. “We can expect some more results to come which will be path-breaking”, he said.

isro: Isro lines up 3 Earth Observation Satellites with key indigenous technologies | India News - Times of India
Chethan Kumar / TNN / Updated: Oct 2, 2021, 23:11 IST

3 minutes


The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro), which has had a negligible year so far as launch missions go, is hoping to launch three Earth Observation Satellites (EOSs) in the last quarter of 2021.
While two of them — EOS-4 (Risat-1A) and EOS-6 (Oceansat-3) — will be launched using Isro’s workhorse PSLV, the third one, EOS-2 (Microsat), will be launched in the first developmental flight of the Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV), marking the beginning of a new class of launch vehicles in India.

Wonder if they are over that problem with the first stage, that troubled them earlier in the year. So far, no report of any successful re-test. When SSLV goes up, it will be the smallest of ISRO's launch vehicles, but in another way, the 'biggest' in the sense that the frequency and number of satellites will be pretty large, since the rocket can be assembled fairly quickly.
