The Ministry of Defence and ISRO have signed a MoU for the project. "We have collaborated with ISRO a couple of years ago," he said.

“Man to Moon is an ambitious project started by the ISRO. Since the Indian Air Force has domain expertise in aviation and in other aspects related to space, we have collaborated with them. The Institute of Aviation Studies Bangalore is also involved in this project," Behl added.   

Rakesh Sharma, a former Indian Air Force pilot, who flew aboard Soyuz T-11 as part of the Inter-cosmos programme by USSR was the first Indian to travel in space.
