Area of Work: ISRO sent a lunar orbiter, Chandrayaan-1, on 22 October 2008 and a Mars orbiter, Mars Orbiter Mission, on 5 November 2013, which entered Mars orbit on 24 September 2014, making India the first nation to succeed on its maiden attempt to Mars, and ISRO the fourth space agency in the world as well as the first space agency in Asia to reach Mars orbit. On 18 June 2016, ISRO launched twenty satellites in a single vehicle, and on 15 February 2017, ISRO launched one hundred and four satellites in a single rocket (PSLV-C37), a world record. ISRO launched its heaviest rocket, Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV-Mk III), on 5 June 2017 and placed a communications satellite GSAT-19 in orbit. With this launch, ISRO became capable of launching 4-ton heavy satellites into GTO. Future plans include development of the Unified Launch Vehicle, Small Satellite Launch Vehicle, development of a reusable launch vehicle, human spaceflight, a space station, controlled soft lunar landing, interplanetary probes, and a solar spacecraft mission.

Mission.: *Design and development of launch vehicles and related technologies for providing access to space. *Design and development of satellites and related technologies for earth observation, communication, navigation, meteorology and space science. *Indian National Satellite (INSAT) programme for meeting telecommunication, television broadcasting and developmental applications. *Indian Remote Sensing Satellite (IRS) programme for management of natural resources and monitoring of environment using space based imagery. *Space based Applications for Societal development. *Research and Development in space science and planetary exploration.

Vision: Harness space technology for national development, while pursuing space science research and planetary exploration.

Mandate: As per the mandate of the Department of Space, Satellite based services are provided to different users in the country through the development and implementation of launch vehicles, satellites and satellite based applications. The year 2018 proved to be a very busy year with many achievements that helped the country to not only showcase its capability in space technology, but also enabled it to reach newer heights with unique achievements of ISRO.

The year 2018 was very eventful year for ISRO with a total of 12 missions accomplished in the reporting period of the year, which includes six launch vehicle missions, five satellite missions and one technology demonstrator, Pad Abort test. The Indian space programme, during the year, made significant progress in its missions by achieving most of its targets with many unique accomplishments. The first test (Pad Abort Test) demonstrated the safe recovery of the crew module in case of any exigency at the launch pad was one of the critical technologies for Gaganyaan which demonstrated ISROs build up towards Gaganyaan. The continuation of space applications programmes including disaster management support and outreach through Direct-To-Home television, reiterates the increasing role played by the Indian space systems in providing direct benefits to the society. Thus, the Indian Space Programme continues to pursue goals on several fronts in meeting its objectives.
