The present article primarily analyses the patenting trends of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) since its formation. The social dimensions and technical prowess of ISRO are well known, but till date no work has been done in analysing its patent portfolio, to let the people be aware of its development, through the prism of patent analysis. This article reports ISRO's patenting activities over the past four decades and has mapped the areas in which patents have been granted. Further, it also discusses how ISRO can be part of the era of open innovation and use its inventions economically.
