ISRO’s High Thrust VIKAS Engine for Gaganyaan programme successfully undergoes qualification test

The High Thrust VIKAS Engine meant for the Gaganyaan programme has successfully undergone a qualification test at the ISRO Propulsion Complex (IPRC) in Mahendragiri, Tamil Nadu today.

The test was carried out for a duration of 25 seconds to verify the robustness of the engine by operating beyond its nominal operating conditions (fuel-oxidiser ratio and chamber pressure).

An ISRO release said the performance of the engine met the test objectives and its parameters closely matched with predictions during the entire duration of the test.

Three more tests are planned for a cumulative duration of 75 seconds under varying operating conditions.

Two engines have already undergone tests under nominal operating conditions for a total duration of 480 seconds.

Subsequently, another high thrust Vikas engine will undergo a long-duration test for 240 seconds to complete the Vikas engine qualification for Gaganyaan Programme.
