Key Functioneries


Antrix enables satellite communications service providers with necessary space segment capacity.


Antrix has been providing Launch Services for customer satellites since 1999 aboard ISRO's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). Over the years, the company has established itself as a leading launch service provider with a track record of successfully placing in orbit, 297 satellites for customers from 33 countries, until March 2019. In September 2016, PSLV C-37 successfully injected 104 satellites in to orbit - the highest number of satellites launched in a single mission so far.


Operational remote sensing data and services in India were initiated with the launch and commissioning of IRS-1A, the first operational Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) Satellite, in the year 1988. By then, India established an institutional mechanism in the country, namely National Natural Resources Management System (NNRMS) to drive the country to operationally utilize the data from these satellites. Since then, many IRS satellites were realised by India. Currently Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) operates four series of satellites namely, Resourcesat, RISAT, Cartosat, Oceansat. Meteorological services are provided through INSAT-3D/3DR satellites.


ANTRIX has capability to configure, build and deliver satellites and satellite sub-systems, for different applications. Towards these, ANTRIX works with customers, leveraging maximally on the capabilities and infrastructure available in Indian space sector. Their various product ranges includes satellite deployer, separation systems, spacecraft & satellite propellent tanks etc.


With ISRO's experience of having accomplished around 100 satellite missions and 50 launches, Antrix, as its commercial arm, caters to mission operations and related support services for customer satellites. The services are extended through the state-of-art facilities and networks built for both low earth orbiting and geostationary satellite missions.


Turnkey end-to-end solutions in designing, system engineering, procurement, installation, commissioning, operationalisation, hosting and maintenance of state-of-the-art satellite earth stations/ TTC stations and associated support systems such as, Uninterrupted Power-supply System (UPS), conditioned and controlled environment, safety and security systems, integrated monitoring and control systems.
