Highlights

ISROs LVM 3 X Glight is Planned on December 18, 2014. Experimental flight of LVM-3 will carry active Solid boosters (S200s), Liquid core stage (L110) and a passive Cryogenic stage (C25).

ISRO: First experimental suborbital flight of India's latest generation Launch Vehicle- GSLV Mk-III, carrying Crew Module Atmospheric Re-entry Experiment (CARE) is scheduled in the third week of December 2014 from SDSC SHAR.

Experimental flight of LVM-3 will carry active Solid boosters (S200s), Liquid core stage (L110) and a passive Cryogenic stage (C25).

The primary objective of this experimental flight is to validate the complex atmospheric ascent regime of this all new launcher, especially the aerodynamic and control features that cannot be conclusively tested on ground.
In this sub-orbital flight, the launcher would climb to an altitude of about 125 km. Taking advantage of this opportunity, a CARE (Crew-module Atmospheric Re-entry Experiment) Module is planned to be injected at this altitude. This module has been realized to validate a number of technologies developed under ISRO’s “Critical Technologies for Human Spaceflight Programme”. This Module is planned to be recovered from the Bay of Bengal after the splash down.
