From WIL To MTAR; Some Companies That Contributed to the Lunar Mission

Chandrayaan-3 was launched by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on July 14 in an effort to make a second lunar landing. If successful, India would join the US, Russia, and China as the fourth country to accomplish this feat. Even though ISRO is the main institution in charge of the Chandrayaan-3 mission, numerous other businesses and startups have also made significant contributions to its success.

Dedication of Businesses and Startups Integral to Chandrayaan-3’s Success

The technology and systems that enable Chandrayaan-3 have been developed over a long period of time by these businesses and startups. Their diligence and commitment are crucial to the mission’s success. In addition to working with these businesses, ISRO has also done business with foreign organisations like NASA, the Australian Space Agency, and the European Space Agency. The mission’s ground support has been made possible thanks in large part to this teamwork.
