Nellore: The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) conducted the qualification test of the cryogenic engine that will be used in the Gaganyaan programme — the first manned Indian space mission — for a duration of 720 seconds at the Isro Propulsion Complex (IPRC), Mahendragiri, Tamil Nadu on Wednesday.

According to Isro, the performance of the engine met the objectives and the parameters were closely matching with the predictions during the duration of the test.

 

This success was described as a major milestone for the human space programme. It ensures the reliability and robustness of the cryogenic engine for induction into the Gaganyaan.

The engine will undergo four more tests for a cumulative duration of 1,810 seconds.

One more engine will undergo two short-duration tests and one long-duration test to complete the cryogenic engine qualification for Gaganyaan programme.
