Tirunelveli, Feb 17 (PTI) ISRO today successfully carried out its indigenously developed cryogenic engine-D stage test at its liquid propulsion complex at Mahendragiri in the district today.

ISRO Chairman A S Kiran Kumar said “the full duration flight test of cryogenic upper stage for GSLV MkIII was successful.”

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.

Today’s test was the last in the series before going for an actual rocket launch, he said.
