Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has achieved self-reliance in the third stage of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) through the successful test of indigenously developed Cryogenic Stage, which was till now powered by Russian version. The test was conducted for flight duration of 720 seconds on November 15, 2007 at Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre (LPSC), Mahendragiri, Tamil Nadu. The test is declared complete success.

With this test, the indigenous Cryogenic Upper Stage has been fully qualified on the ground. ISRO spokesperson said “The next test will now be on a GSLV rocket and the mission is slated for lift-off in the middle of 2008.” The next GSLV mission is GSLV-D3.

The successful ground test of the indigenous Cryogenic Upper Stage for the full flight duration has validated the design robustness and performance adequacy for its use in GSLV.
