INDIA’S NEW SPACECOM POLICY THE GOOD AND WHAT CAN BE BETTER
India’s New Spacecom Policy – The Good and What can be Better
India’s decade old SatCom Policy may be getting a long awaited refresh. Starting mid-2020 the Indian Government announced a series of reforms for the Space Sector including the formulation of regulator IN-SPACe for granting authorisations to space-based services. This was quickly followed by a draft SpaceCom Policy that attempts to capture the entire spectrum of space activities, from EO to NGSOs and facilitate the establishment of Indian companies to develop space-based systems. This virtual fireside chat will discuss the nuances of the new draft policy and all it entails – the positives, the negatives and everything in between.
