With Chandrayaan-3, India’s third lunar exploration mission, it will become the fourth nation to send a spacecraft to the moon’s surface and show that it is capable of a soft and safe landing.

The corporation claimed in a statement on Thursday that it has been involved in this mission from the fabrication of subsystems to mission tracking.

At L&T’s Powai factory, the crucial booster segments—head end segment, middle segment, and nozzle bucket flange—were created and put through proof pressure testing.

The supply of ground and flight umbilical plates, produced at L&T’s cutting-edge aerospace manufacturing facility in Coimbatore, is another contribution to the project.

For the Indian Space Programme, L&T has also been instrumental in the system integration of the launch vehicle.

“We have the honour of working alongside ISRO on critically vital space missions, with L&T providing its extraordinary engineering prowess, manufacturing know-how, and talented staff. According to AT Ramchandani, Executive Vice President and Head of L&T Defence, “The Space sector is opening up for the Indian Industry, and we will leverage this long association with ISRO to play a bigger role in Space Programmes of the future.”

Prior to the mission’s launch from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota on Friday, a countdown began on Thursday at 14:35:17 IST. The GSLV Mark 3 (LVM 3) heavy-lift launch vehicle will carry the spacecraft into orbit.

“L&T’s cutting-edge Aerospace Manufacturing Facility produced the space hardware in order to meet the strict quality and scheduling requirements for India’s third Moon mission. According to the business statement, all of these subsystems have been delivered earlier than expected.
