Date: 08 January 2020 Tags: Space
  • India plans to start space-to-space tracking and communication of its space assets this year by putting up a new satellite series called the Indian Data Relay Satellite System.
  • The IDRSS is planned to track and be constantly in touch with Indian satellites, in particular those in low-earth orbits which have limited coverage of earth.
  • In the coming years, it will be vital to Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), whose future expeditions is dotted with advanced LEO missions such as space docking, space station, as well as distant expeditions to moon, Mars and Venus.
