V.V. Srinivasan  obtained his M.Tech degree in Microwave Electronics from Delhi University, India, in 1986.  Subsequently he joined ISRO and was  involved in the development of antennas for spacecrafts, airborne radar applications and ground station antennas.  His area of work includes phased array antennas for spacecraft applications, microstrip antennas and arrays, high efficiency – light weight reflector antennas, broadband antennas, ground station antennas, feeds for reflector antennas.  Spaceborne Phased Array Antennas with dual circular polarization capability is designed by him have been flown and widely used to transmit high quality images in state of the art remote sensing satellites.   His area of work also includes ground station antennas including RF design of the antenna and associated feeds.  Important  contributions have been made in the design and realization of the 32mtr beam waveguide ground station antenna of ISRO (IDSN-32).  Currently he is Director of the ISRO Telemetry,  Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC). ISTRAC, is entrusted with the major responsibility to provide tracking support for all the satellite and launch vehicle missions of ISRO. The major objectives of the centre are: carrying out mission operations of all  operational remote sensing and scientific satellites, providing Telemetry, Tracking and Command (TTC) services from launch vehicle lift-off till injection of satellite into orbit and to estimate its preliminary orbit in space and hardware and software developmental activities that enhance the capabilities of ISTRAC for providing flawless TTC and Mission Operations services. Towards, these objectives, ISTRAC has established a network of ground stations at Bengaluru, Lucknow, Mauritius, Sriharikota, Port Blair, Thiruvananthapuram, Brunei, Biak (Indonesia) and the Deep Space Network Stations. and is taking care of the Ground Station Network Area and Radar Development Area.

He has published about 100 technical papers in various national / international conferences and journals.   He is an active IEEE volunteer and served the Bangalore section in various capacities and chaired the section in 2010 and 2011.  He is a Senior Member of IEEE.
