he ISRO Inertial Systems Unit here will step up production of systems for satellites and launch vehicles because of ISRO’s plan to increase the frequency of satellite launches to meet the rising demand.

The fabrication of Polar Satellite Launch Vehicles is mostly done in Thiruvananthapuram, and various units under ISRO here are gearing up to meet the demand for components.

G. Ravindranath, who recently assumed charge as Director of the ISRO Inertial Systems Unit, said that besides the production of inertial systems, the fabrication of solar arrays and instruments for satellites was being stepped up.
