The Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) is expected to approve plans for the development and production of an electro-optical (EO) satellite weighing between 150-200 kg. This satellite will serve as a space-based intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) asset, providing backup support in case primary military satellites become disabled.

Under the project named Veda, or Vehicle for Defence Application, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is already engaged in the development of a three-stage, solid-propellant rocket. This rocket is designed to deploy defence satellites into lower orbits, enabling various applications such as surveillance, communication, and navigation for the Indian armed forces.

The Veda SLV (Satellite Launch Vehicle) will be a road-mobile launch platform, allowing for greater flexibility in terms of launch locations. This mobility will enhance the Indian armed forces’ ability to deploy defence satellites as per their operational requirements.

In addition, DRDO is collaborating with private sector companies in India to develop a swarm of nanosatellites. This multi-satellite constellation aims to enhance space-based ISR capabilities, further bolstering India’s surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.
