Contributed significantly to GSLV D5 success: HAL
Bangalore: Hailing the Indian Space Research Organisation for the successful launch of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) D5, defence major Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) today noted that its Aerospace Division had contributed in a significant way towards the project.
"HAL`s Aerospace Division contributed in a significant way towards the launch by supplying 13 types of riveted structural assemblies and seven types of welded propellant tankages and feed lines, which include three structures and two propellant tankages," HAL Chairman R K Tyagi said.
From the spaceport at Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, ISRO today successfully launched the GSLV D5 with an indigenous cryogenic engine to enter a select club of nations.
HAL had integrated and delivered all four L40 booster rockets, the company said in a release, adding that "it (had) provided the bare structure of the communication satellite (GSAT-14), an assembly of composite and metallic honeycomb sandwich panels with a composite cylinder".
The release added that the HAL-ISRO partnership has been growing over the years and is poised to achieve more.
