20 Feb 17

Indian Space Research Organization has touched a huge success after a world-record launch of 104 satellites on Feb-15-2017.  The day is now recorded in the list of historical events.

With this recent achievement, India has upgraded its efforts and entered into an elite global club known as the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR).

As per the officials, India joined MTCR in June 2016 which fires up the first stage of the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).

The officials also added that on the initial stage they had limited technology to test the system.

However, with the help of MTCR membership scientists have got the access for faster testing of the solid rocket booster.

Faster testing system signify a time span between two launches which is now reduced, stated the scientists. Moreover, with the faster frequency of the launch, more commercial payloads can be carried out.

The officials of ISRO stated that an access to MTCR’s controlled items has led to key efforts in making India a bigger performer in the $300-billion satellite launch market.
