Upgraded Vikas Engine to Boost ISRO’s Rockets

ISRO recently improved the thrust of the Vikas engine that powers all three of Indian Satellite Launch Vehicles – PSLV, GSLV and GSLV Mk-III

Key Highlights

  • The high-thrust Vikas engine qualified after a ground test lasting 195 seconds (over three minutes) that will improve the payload capability of India’s space launch vehicles.
  • The main beneficiary of Vikas engine will be the GSLV-Mark III launcher, as the engine will help ISRO to put 4,000-kg satellites to space.
  • However, ISRO will eventually phase out Vikas engine by replacing it with a cleaner and safer semi-cryogenic engine that is being developed.
