Tirunelveli: The Indian Space Research Organsisation (ISRO) on Friday successfully carried out its indigenously developed cryogenic engine-D stage test at its liquid propulsion complex at Mahendragiri in the district.
ISRO Chairman AS Kiran Kumar said, "The full duration flight test of cryogenic upper stage for GSLV MkIII was successful."
He added, 'The test was the last in the series before going for an actual rocket launch'.
The successful test of C-25 payload capacity of four tonnes class of satellite would pave way for the launch of GSLV Mark III C-25 satellite. The engine will be put into use in April.
