Anil Kumar is currently working as Associate Director, ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) here.
ISRO has been working on various technologies, including the one demonstrated with Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (IAD), last week.
The new space policy, which is expected to be unveiled soon, will remove most of the constraints faced by private players, who can look forward to building satellites, leasing out transponders, building launch vehicles and exploring the world of space-based applications.
At least 100 startups are active in the country's space sector building satellites, launch vehicles and even designing in-orbit refuellers for satellites that would otherwise have to be abandoned for want of fuel.
The successful testing of its satellite deployers clears the path for Dhruva Space for their satellite missions, Thybolt-1 and Thybolt-2, which would be aboard the PSLV C54, ISRO's upcoming commercial mission
India’s space technology ecosystem has an advantage because of its practices and policies, says Agnikul Cosmos cofounder Srinath Ravichandran
The performance of the engine met the test objectives and the engine parameters were closely matching with the predictions during the entire duration of the test on Wednesday, the Bengaluru-headquartered space agency said.

The twin-crown, dual time, titanium Apogee is priced at Rs 68,000. There is also the Rs 1.68 lakh Extraterrestrial, which has a meteorite dial and is limited to 50 pieces.
The pact inked on Wednesday enables building a virtual constellation of specified remote sensing satellites of BRICS space agencies and their respective ground stations will receive the data, ISRO said.
The Bengaluru-headquartered space agency had planned to launch its maiden human space flight mission 'Gaganyaan' by December 2021.
The robot was the centre of attraction at the inaugural session of the "Human Spaceflight and Exploration - Present Challenges and Future Trends" here on January 22.
The organisation had garnered high praise for the appointment of Vanitha and Ritu Karidhal as project director and mission director
Cartosat-3 is "a third generation agile advanced satellite having high resolution imaging capability".
The launch is tentatively scheduled to take place at 9.28 hrs on November 25 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, subject to weather conditions.
The image was captured by the Imaging Infrared Spectrometer (IIRS) payload on-board the latest lunar exploration mission, ISRO said in a statement on its website.
The function of this rover will be to carry out scientific experiments on the surface of the Moon.
ISRO has kept the launch window for the mission onboard GSLV MK-III rocket from July 9 to July 16 with an expected Moon landing on September 6, Sivan told reporters here.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched the GSAT-31 from the spaceport in French Guiana today. Here are a few facts about the satellite
After launching the two satellites, the fourth stage of PSLV-C44 will be converted into a platform for experiments in space
"They may be small in size with different functions and so forth but one rocket can send up, I think it was 104 platforms," said Coats, who if confirmed would be in-charge of all major American intelligence agencies including the CIA.
A long-term thinking was needed for setting up a space station, he said, adding "the sooner the better." Kumar said ISRO was also mulling tying up with the industry to enhance the country's satellite launching capability.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) set a new record yesterday when it successfully launched a PSLV-C37 rocket carrier with 104 satellites on board a single rocket from Sriharikota.
"This is perhaps the first widely followed world record India has made in the field of space technology. The Indians have reason to be proud," state-run Global Times said in its editorial today.
