ISRO conducts 2nd static testing of GSLV

According to a release by  ISRO, the testing of the liquid core stage took place for a flight duration of 200 seconds and tested nearly 500 health parameters. The initial data obtained after the test has revealed that the performance was normal and is expected to be a significant step in the development of GSLV-Mk III launch vehicle.

Major milestone

ISRO has called the test “a major milestone in the earth storable liquid rocket programme.”
 GSLV-Mk III, which is currently under advanced stage of development, uses two solid strap-on boosters (S200), L110 liquid stage and a cryogenic upper stage C-25.

L110 is one of the heaviest earth storable liquid stages ever developed by ISRO. L110 stage had two high pressure Vikas engines in a clustered configuration. All the tests are being conducted at the Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre (LPSC) test facility at Mahendragiri.
