Design and technology company Tata Elxsi has partnered with Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for the upcoming Gaganyaan Mission.
Under the partnership, Tata Elxsi will be designing and developing the Crew Module Recovery Models (CMRM) for the mission.
This also marks Tata Elxsi’s foray into mechanical design for space.
Two Recovery-Models (CMRM and GSF) have been delivered to Naval training teams at Kochi and Visakhapatnam to train the recovery teams.
ISRO’s Gaganyaan project aims to demonstrate human spaceflight capability by launching a three-member crew onto an orbit of 400 km for a three-day mission and bringing them back to Earth safely by landing in Indian sea waters.
In February, ISRO partnered with Indian Navy to conduct a series of tests to recover a mock crew module from a closed pool. The tests were carried out at the Water Survival Test Facility, a location owned by the Indian Navy in Kochi.
