Intellectual Property Rights


NRSC has been pursuing a systematic and well defined policy for transfer of know how products / technologies developed inhouse. The objectives have been to facilitate greater participation of Indian industries in various space projects, their applications in the commercial domain and to take benefit of ‘Spin-Offs’ of such technologies. The technology transfer mechanism established during early eighties enables licensing of know-how from various NRSC for commercial exploitation. Many technologies have been successfully transferred and productionised in industries in the fields of ground systems related to satellite communications, Industries in the large, medium and small scale sectors have largely been beneficiaries of the technology transfer scheme. Simultaneously, NRSC has been investing in developing a patent portfolio, which now consists of Two patents and Seven copyrights. NRSC's approach has been tuned towards enabling maximal commercial exploitation of such resources through appropriate technology transfers or licensing schemes.
