India has decided not to have any relationship with Russia while adopting the 'Ekla Chalo' approach in Chandrayaan-II's ambitious project, and in this way, it will be an indigenous project with "little" help from the US.
ISRO chairman A s. Kiran Kumar said that Chandrayaan will be a lander and rover made in the country and it will be sent in December 2017 or 2018. This vehicle will have equipment that will collect samples and send data on the earth. Chandrayaan is an ongoing series of missions to be sent in outer space from ISRO.
ISRO was able to do a vital search of water on the moon in its first Chandrayaan campaign. India has removed Russia from this project. Now it will be an indigenous project, but with a little help from America. It is notable that in December 2010, India had agreed that the Russian space agency Roccosmos will be responsible for Chandrayaan's Lunar Lander, while ISRO will launch it along with the Orbiter and Rover as well through GSLV. Later, after the change in functional configuration, it was decided that ISRO would also work on the development of Lunar Lander and Chandran-2 would be an Indian campaign altogether.
A senior ISRO official said, "There were some problems with the Russian Lander and they had said that they needed some more time to test. Meanwhile, we decided to develop it at the grassroots level. "However, despite being a countryman, ISRO will take services of NASA for the project. Kumar said, "You can not keep an eye on the satellite from a place ... because you need support from other places. Alliance with NASA is limited to the services of Deep Space Network for the purpose of Chandrayaan. We are not using Russian help in this project. "In the last few years ISRO's space cooperation with NASA is growing. It is noteworthy that after the nuclear tests of India in 1974 and 1998, the coalition was stalled between the two agencies. Now that the relations between the two countries are getting enlarged, cooperation between both the internal agencies is also increasing.
Collaboration between the two agencies is also being done in the Mangal Project. On the other hand, it is a matter of fact that India has adopted the approach of 'Ekla Chalo' on the Chandrayaan project and is cooperating with Russia on other projects.
Kumar said, "In the future, some facilities will be needed to test semi-cryogenic engines. So we are still thinking about the possibility of working with them. All space agencies felt that many costs of their campaigns could not be shared unless they worked together. "
