Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), a Navratna PSU, has said that the structural assemblies and propellant tankages of GSLV Mk III - India’s heaviest rocket, launched by ISRO on June 5, were produced at its Aerospace Division.
 
HAL produced the tallest ever Pay Load Fairing (PLF) which protected all the sensitive and crucial equipment during the launch phase, it said.
 
T Suvarna Raju, HAL CMD, said that HAL’s Aerospace Division is the only facility in the country that manufactures such huge space worthy complex structures. “We congratulate Space Voyagers of India - Indian Space Research Organisation for its successful launch”, he added.
 
Twenty types of riveted structure, six types of welded structure and GSAT-19 bus structure were manufactured at Aerospace Division of HAL and delivered in time for the historic GSLV MKIII D1 mission.
 
HAL and ISRO have a five-decade-old partnership which is growing stronger by the day. The enterprise said it contributes significantly to ISRO programmes – PSLV, GSLV Mk II and GSLV Mk III – by way of supplying light alloy structures, tankages and satellite bus bars.
 
HAL has acquired new capabilities and modernised its facilities continuously over time to develop next generation hardware for the future space missions. Currently, the booster rockets of GSLV MKII integrated by HAL are used directly on the launch pad.
 
Notably, HAL delivered eighteen structures and propellant tankages to the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) launched on November 5, 2013.
