Russia's Angstrem microelectronics manufacturer is in talks on supplying some 10,000 radiation-resistant circuits for India's space program, local media said Tuesday.
Angstrem has contacted a private Indian company working as a subcontractor for the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), offering to supply $200,000 worth of electronic circuits, the company told the Izvestia newspaper.
Several electronic spacecraft control and launch systems are currently being tested in India, the publication said, adding that Angstrem may begin supplying India from September if test results are positive.
India has been stepping up the development of its indigenous space vehicle manufacture capabilities. In May, India's first space shuttle, the Re-Usable Launch Vehicle - Technology Demonstrator (RLV-TD) was launched from the island of Sriharikota. ISRO plans to test two more of such prototypes, which are instrumental to the development of a final version of the shuttle, expected to be launched in 2030.
New Delhi possesses a number of scientific, communication and navigation satellites. India, along with Russia, Japan, the United States and the European Space Agency, has its own space observatory project.
