ISRO successfully completes crucial Chandrayaan-3 rocket engine test

As per the Indian Space Research Organisation, the flight acceptance hot test of the CE-20 cryogenic engine, which will power the launch vehicle's cryogenic upper stage for the Chandrayaan-3 mission, was completed successfully.


On February 24, the national space agency with its Bengaluru headquarters reported that the hot test was conducted for the anticipated 25 seconds at the High Altitude Test Facility of the ISRO Propulsion Complex in Mahendragiri in Tamil Nadu.

After the test, "all the propulsion parameters were deemed good and closely aligned with forecasts," according to an ISRO statement.


As stated by ISRO, in order to achieve a completely integrated flight cryogenic stage, the cryogenic engine will be further integrated with the propellant tanks, stage structures, and related fluid lines.


At this location's U R Rao Satellite Center, the Chandrayaan-3 lander conducted an EMI/EMC test earlier this year with success.


It was mentioned that EMI-EMC tests are carried out for satellite missions to confirm the performance of the satellite components in the space environment and their compliance with the anticipated electromagnetic levels.


In the development of the satellites, this test represents a significant turning point, according to ISRO.


The propulsion module, the lander module, and a rover are the three essential components of the interplanetary Chandrayaan-3 project. The complexity of the mission requires radio-frequency (RF) communication links between the units.


According to ISRO, the Chandrayaan-3 lander's antenna polarization, launcher compatibility, standalone auto compatibility tests for the orbital and powered descent mission phases, and lander and rover compatibility testing for the post landing mission phase were all assured during the test.


Chandrayaan-3, a follow-up mission to Chandrayaan-2, seeks to demonstrate the viability of a risk-free lunar landing and exploration from start to finish. ISRO predicts that the mission will begin in June.


At Sriharikota's Satish Dhawan Space Center, it will be launched by Launch Vehicle Mark 3 (LVM3) (Andhra Pradesh).


The lander and rover combination will be propelled till a 100 km lunar orbit by the propulsion module. Spectro-polarimetry of Habitable Planet Earth (SHAPE) is a payload aboard the propulsion module that measures the spectral and polarimetric properties of Earth from an orbit around the moon.
