ISRO: Explore Space or Exploit CubeSats?
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) achieved global acclaim by launching successful missions to the moon and Mars at a fraction of the cost of prior Western missions. It is now faced with an important strategic dilemma-whether to continue exploring deep space in collaboration with NASA and other leading agencies, whether to leverage its infrastructure for societal uses, or whether to exploit a commercial opportunity related to launching small, handheld cubesats. The case explores the basis for ISRO's cost advantage vis- -vis western entities, as well as its resource constraints and human capital considerations as it makes this important strategic choice for the future.
