  • 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.
