The RLV’s autonomous test landing mission was successfully completed by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). The mission was carried out successfully at the Aeronautical Test Range (ATR) in Chitradurga, Karnataka.
According to ISRO, the Reusable Send-off Vehicle Independent Landing Mission (RLV LEX) at the Aeronautical Test Reach (ATR) in Chitradurga, Karnataka, was effectively led by DRDO and ISRO during the early long periods of April 2, 2023.
The automated, quick, and precise independent landing took place in the same conditions as the return journey from space by a Space Reemergence vehicle. LEX made use of a number of indigenous systems. According to ANI, referring to an administration announcement, ISRO produced instrument and sensor frameworks, confined route frameworks, and other items.
On the May 2016 HEX mission, ISRO’s winged vehicle RLV-TD demonstrated re-entry. The hypersonic suborbital vehicle’s reemergence was a critical stage toward the improvement of reusable send-off vehicles. In addition to ISRO, this test was made possible by the Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE), the Centre for Military Airworthiness and Certification (CEMILAC), and the Indian Air Force (IAF).
Shyam Mohan N, Program Director of ATSP, and Dr. S. Unnikrishnan Nair, Director of VSSC, were in charge of the teams. Muthupandian J, RLV’s partner project chief, was in charge of the vehicle, and Dr. Jayakumar M, RLV’s task chief, was in charge of the mission. The event was attended by ISTRAC Director Ramakrishna. Somanath, Chairman of ISRO and Secretary of DOS, observed the test and wished the team success.
