Well known by remote sensing scientists around the world, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) maintains the Indian Remote Sensing Satellite (IRS), providing earth photos for environmental management and global research applications. ISRO has more than this to offer; its objectives include the development of launch vehicles, such as the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV), as well as the development of sounding rockets and supporting ground systems. The homepage provides background information on ISRO's history, space programs and services, partnerships and international relationships. Visitors can find summaries in the Recent Events section; future missions and planned developments are highlighted in the Decade Plan section.
