Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has handed over the first ‘Crew Module Structural Assembly’ for the ‘Human Space Flight Program’ to ISRO's Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC).

The first crew module will be further equipped with systems necessary for crew support, navigation, guidance and control systems for experimentation in the forthcoming GSLV-MK3 launch.

“HAL takes pride in India’s space programmes and our aerospace division has produced this crew module in record time to meet the requirements of ISRO,” said Dr R. K. Tyagi, Chairman, HAL.

HAL has contributed to India’s space programmes, including ISRO’s mars mission, by providing the satellite structure, propellant tankages and supplied 13 types of riveted structural assemblies, seven types of welded propellant tankages, which include the cryogenic liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen tanks and cryogenic stage structures, for the GSLV D5.
