Bangalore: Hindustan Aeronautics Limited has handed over the Mars orbiter mission satellite structure to the ISRO Satellite Centre here.
The mission is aimed at studying the climate, geology, origin and evolution of the red planet, according to the Navratna defence PSU headquartered here.

The assembly work was carried out at HAL`s aerospace division here. ISRO will build the other satellite subsystems and scientific payload onto this structure. The completed satellite will ultimately embark on a voyage to orbit planet Mars, HAL said.
