For the past four decades, ISRO has launched more than 60 satellites for different scientific and technological applications like mobile communications, Direct-to-Home services, meteorological observations, telemedicine, tele-education, tragedy warning, radio networking, search and rescue operations, remote sensing and scientific studies of the space.

ISRO has established two major space systems, the Indian National Satellite System (INSAT) series for communication, television broadcasting and meteorological services which is Geo-Stationary Satellites, and Indian Remote Sensing Satellites (IRS) system for resources monitoring and management which is Earth Observation Satellites.

ISRO has launched several Experimental Satellites which are generally small comparing to INSAT or IRS and Space Missions to explore the space.
