Isro Technology Transfer Agreement

ISRO has entered into a Technology Transfer Agreement (TTA) with Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) to transfer the technology for producing lithium-ion cells in space quality. The TTA was signed on Thursday at ISRO headquarters in Bengaluru, in the presence of Dr. K. Sivan, President, ISRO, and Atul Sobti, President and CEO, BHEL. ISRO has transmitted to BHEL its local technology for producing space-compatible li-ion cells. ISRO uses Li-ion batteries as a power source for satellite and launcher applications, due to their high energy density, reliability and long service life. ISRO`s Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) in Thiruvananthapuram has successfully developed the technology for manufacturing space-compatible li-ion cells, demonstrated the cell`s performance under different test conditions and defined its cycle life properties in accelerated mode. These cells are currently used for various satellite and launcher applications. This technology transfer will allow BHEL to manufacture lithium-ion cells for ISRO and other suitable applications in its own home. Lithium-ion technology can also be developed for use in the emerging energy storage and e-mobility sectors. BHEL will establish a state-of-the-art facility to manufacture these cells in its Bengaluru unit, he added. Currently, the lithium-ion battery is the dominant battery system that finds applications for a variety of social needs, including cell phones, laptops, PDAs, cameras, and many other consumer wearable devices. Recent advances in li-ion battery technology have made it the preferred energy source for electric and hybrid electric vehicles.

Li-ion cells find widespread applications in electronic devices, telecommunications, industrial applications and aerospace. The Space Department said today in a press release that ISRO has transferred its local technology for manufacturing space-grade lithium-ion cells to BHEL. In March 2018, BHEL signed the technology transfer agreement with ISRO for the acquisition of Li-Ion cell production technology. Interested parties/consortia should submit a request in accordance with the provisions of this call for tenders. The call for tenders contains a brief description of the qualification and technology transfer process, instructions for applicants, admission criteria, timetables and various application forms. Interested candidates will participate in a Pre-Application Conference (PAC) scheduled for July 13, 2018. Any request or request for additional information concerning the call for tenders can only be answered at the conference preceding the application. The place and time will be indicated later. The schedule of the different activities related to the qualification process is as follows: In the presence of K Sivan, Secretary, Space Department and President, ISRO and Atul Sobti, President and CEO, BHEL, the technology transfer agreement was signed by S Biswas, Director (Engg, R&D), BHEL and S Somanath, Director, VSSC…
