The Indian spacetech sector is unlocking new opportunities and potential with the new spacetech reforms announced last year. As a part of this, private sectors will now be included for furthering space-related activities.

Nodal agency Indian National Space Promotion and Authorisation Centre (IN-SPACe), under Department of Space (DoS), was launched in 2020 for monitoring the private players and collaborating with their space activities. This private-public collaboration may fuel and further India’s efforts to understand space opportunities.

Chennai-based spacetech startup Agnikul Cosmos became the first player to enter a non-disclosure agreement with DoS under IN-SPACe in December 2020 to work with ISRO for developing launch vehicles.

Launched in 2017 by Srinath Ravichandran and Moin SPM, Agnikul Cosmos is involved in building India’s private small satellite launch vehicles.

If you are someone with the capabilities to further the Indian space sector and wish to work in collaboration with ISRO, YourStory brings to you a curated list of job openings at Agnikul Cosmos.
