Let us look at the launch operations profile of ISRO. We will have three launchers operating from 2008 onwards.
We have established production capabilities for 4 launch vehicles per year with 4 months of launch preparation period.
With the LVM3 having to make 2 launches per year, out launch frequency can become 6 launches per year.
The RLV’s goal is to achieve substantially large number of launches per year as new uses / applications emerge.
The cost of operations has to be a few order less than the present vehicles.
