Hey Kalpana, a day to day job of a Computer Scientist includes development of algorithms, modules, techniques or analyzers for bigger projects. They mostly prefers Python, FORTRAN or MATLAB for most of the development processes. Sometimes, you might even get a chance to do research on developing special Data Processing ideas,equipment etc.

A Computer Science Engineer or Computer Scientist at ISRO works on various technical aspects of ongoing Space Missions. This includes creating or maintaining Software for Simulations and Statistical analysis. There are also work areas for managing Computer networks, Data Mining, creating Integration software for Ground and space units

Think about the amount of data satellites capture from space or the amount of parameters they need to consider before making any satellite launch. So according to me, Statistics and Data Analysis are major areas where jobs are coming up in ISRO projects.

The software scene in ISRO is more of an operations thing than research.

  • Computer Scientists will need and develop software to run our various systems and these systems are the focus.

  • Apart from user/service software/applications developed at centres like Space Application Centre, ISRO has an intensive network of centres/GROUND-stations and this network is managed by ISTRAC.

  • They use both Linux- and Windows-based platforms and develop for both too.

  • JAVA is the favoured language, but we use C, C++, C#, Python, Perl, etc. a lot too. Whatever gets the work done. At ISTRAC, computer networking is a high priority and in-demand task.

  • Then, there is the requirement of building simulation software. This is done by all centres as per their requirements. Also, India’s largest supercomputer is at Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, meant for aerospace simulations.

  • All these simulations as well as developments are done by a computer scientist.
