ISRO to launch GSLV with cryo engine
Thiruvananthapuram, Jul 27: ISRO is planning to launch a GSLV flight using indigenously developed cryogenic engine.
ISRO, Chairman K Radhakrishnan said on Monday, Jul 27, "Preparations are on to launch the flight with cryogenic technology within one year."
Reacting to the earlier failure of ISRO to lanch GSLV flight with cryo engine, he said "failures were normal in experimental phases and the probe into the failure of GSLV D-3 mission was in different stages of progress and some minute details that led to the failure were yet to be identified."
On recently launched PSLV-16, he said the CARTOSAT put into the orbit by the flight was functioning well satisfying all the parameters. With this successful launch, the space agency had been getting a lot of offers from various countries for carrying their payloads.
ISRO is also engaged in developing satellites for the Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System and it is expected to be completed within two years. However, ISRO is also planning to launch more PSLV within the next few months.
