Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has prepared a new system. Its name is ‘ISRO System for Safe and Sustainable Operation and Management’ (IS4OM). IS4OM prepared in India will help the country in space science. You can understand it like this that the number of satellites floating in space is in thousands. These satellites orbiting the Earth are meeting the needs of different countries related to science, weather, agriculture and internal security. There are 53 Indian satellites in these. Along with this, there are thousands of such satellites, which have now been destroyed and are floating in orbit. Their collision can destroy existing satellites. This is where IS4OM will come in handy. It detects and monitors debris in space. With the help of this system, satellite debris will be prevented from colliding with existing satellites and they will be protected.
According to the report of PTI, this system is being launched today. Union Minister of State for Space Jitendra Singh will launch it. ISRO Chairman S Somnath will also be present during this. According to the information, the job of IS4OM is to identify and monitor debris in space. Thus, it is part of the Space Situational Awareness Programme.
It will track the floating debris in space to detect their collision with our satellites and prevent the situation from getting worse. Whatever information it will provide will directly reach the space agency’s headquarters in Bangalore. Dedicated labs have also been setup under this project. She will complete her work related to space debris including various R&D activities.
ISRO officials say that IS4OM will enhance the country’s self-reliance in safeguarding space assets. The Space Surveillance and Tracking Control Center comprising console, software and display will be inaugurated on Monday. After this India will be able to protect its satellites in space.
Talking about the upcoming missions of ISRO, Chandrayaan-3 is the most important of them. It was to be launched at the end of the year 2020, but was delayed due to the Corona epidemic. It is a lander-specific mission, with no orbiter. This is because the first orbiter of Chandrayaan-2 is working properly. The Chandrayaan-3 mission is important because it will be ISRO’s second attempt to land on the Moon and will improve the path of interplanetary missions.
