NASA will be providing the deep space navigation and tracking support for this mission when communications are not possible with the Indian Deep Space Network.

If the ISRO fails to launch the Mars mission this year, the next launch opportunities occur in January-April 2016 and April-May 2018. The mission is estimated to cost 4.5 billion rupees ($83 million).
