Indian Space Research Organization has successfully conducted the qualifying examination of cryogenic engine For Gaganyaan Program for duration of 720 seconds ISRO Propulsion Complex, Mahendragiri, Tamil Nadu.

The Bengaluru-headquartered space agency said the engine’s performance met the test objectives and engine parameters closely matched with predictions during the entire period of the test on Wednesday.

“This is a major milestone for successful long-duration testing manned space program – Gaganyaan. This ensures the reliability and robustness of the cryogenic engine for induction into the manned-rated launch vehicle for Gaganyaan”, said an ISRO statement.

In addition, this engine will have to undergo four more tests for a total duration of 1810 seconds, it said.

Thereafter, ISRO said, another engine would have to undergo two short duration tests and one long duration test to meet the cryogenic engine qualification for the Gaganyaan programme.

ISRO Chairman K Sivan India’s flagship Gaganyaan project earlier this month has completed the design phase and has entered the testing phase.

“The first unmanned mission is directed to be launched before the 75th anniversary of India’s independence (August 15, 2022) and all stakeholders are doing their best to meet the schedule. I am sure we will be able to meet this target”, Sivan had said.
