(DOS), by bringing ISRO under the DOS. Almost everyone in the world would know about its latest mission Chandrayaan 2, but not many would know that ISRO is working on many other big projects. Here are the upcoming missions of ISRO / upcoming ISRO projects.

The Upcoming mission of ISRO after Chandrayaan2

Aditya-L1

ISRO has planned to carry out a mission to the Sun named Aditya-L1 by the year 2019–20. Aditya-L1 will weigh about 400 kg. It is the first Indian-based Solar Coronagraph whose objective is to study the

Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). This will help in finding completely new information on the velocity fields and their variability in the inner corona on the unsolved problem of heating of the corona.

This module had its first un-crewed experimental flight on 18 December 2014. The crewed vehicle is planned to be launched in December 2021 on ISRO’s GSLV Mk III. Before this, the test flights of the spacecraft will be launched un-crewed in December 2020 and July 2021.

RISAT-1A

RISAT-1A is Radar imaging satellite that is similar to RISAT-1. It is a land-based mission in terrain mapping and examines land, ocean and water surface for soil moisture. It will launch in 2023. The satellite is being developed by ISRO.

 

It will be a land-based mission with a primary application and will carry Synthetic Aperture Radar which will operate at 5.35 GHz in C band. Synthetic Aperture Radar can be used for earth observation of the light.

The goal of NISAR is to make global measurements of the causes and consequences of land surface changes. The planned mission life is three years and the share in the project of ISRO is about ₹788 crore (US$110 million), and NASA’s share is about US$808 million.

Mangalyaan 2 (MOM 2)

The Mars Orbiter Mission 2 (MOM2), also called Mangalyaan 2 is the revised version of Mangalyaan (MOM) which was launched on 5 November 2013 by ISRO. It made India the first Asian nation to reach Martian orbit and the first nation in the world to do so on its first attempt.

Mars Orbiter Mission 2 (MOM 2) also called Mangalyaan 2 is India’s second interplanetary mission planned to launch to Mars by ISRO in 2021–2022. It will consist of an orbiter, lander and a rover.

The orbiter would have a science payload capability of approximately 100 kilograms (220 lb) with 500 W available power.

Chandrayaan-3

The Chandrayaan-3 will be launched in 2024 for more moon exploration. It is robotic space mission by the ISRO and Japan’s space agency JAXA that would send a lunar rover and lander to explore the South Pole region of the Moon.

It would be the third mission of Chandrayaan launched by India. The mission will explore new surface technologies related to vehicular transport and lunar night survival for sustainable lunar exploration in Polar Regions.
