2. LPSC, Bangalore

The centre located at Bangalore is responsible for Satellite Propulsion Systems Integration for GEOSAT and IRS programmes. The centre is also responsible for design and development of monopropellant propulsion system, System engineering, Transducer and Spacecraft propellant tanks. The centre is involved in R&D and TDP activities towards development of electric propulsion system, propellant gauging system for spacecraft, advanced transducers etc.

Major Achievements include:

  • Integration of propulsion systems for INSAT, GSAT, IRS class of satellites
  • providing propellant ervicing for launch and support for in orbit operation of the propulsion systems
  • Transducers development and production undertaken caters to launch vehicle, satellite propulsion system and facility requirements.
  • Monopropellant thruster developed and realised are used in IRS class of satellites
