According to Ajjree Engineering Industries Pvt Ltd, it will be essential to the Indian Space Research Organization’s (Isro) upcoming space missions. The Bengaluru-based company gave the UR Rao Satellite Centre, Isro, the first batch of “space-qualified heat pipes,” a crucial part of satellites, on Monday.
“This is an important turning point for us. In order to achieve all technical and quality standards, it is difficult to innovate and produce satellite component parts, according to Basavvraaj B. Ajrri, managing director of Ajjree Engineering Industries. “We appreciate Isro’s guidance in helping us provide these heat pipes at the highest level of quality. We are honored to participate in Isro’s upcoming space missions.
To make space-qualified heat pipes, Ajjree Engineering Industries has established a production facility in Bengaluru’s Jigani Industrial Area. It is the second business of its kind that Isro has authorized to provide pipes to the UR Rao Satellite Center. The business said that its testing facility in Jigani subjects all of its products to rigorous testing. As a key partner in this undertaking, Paras Defence and Space Technologies Ltd. has invested Rs. 5.5 crore in Ajjree Engineering Industries Pvt Ltd.
A crew from Isro that contributed to the successful launch of Chandrayaan 3 was also recognized on the same event by the business.
“Ajjree Industries may end up serving as Isro’s backup heat pipe supplier if they pass the quality checks. According to M. Sankaran, the director of the U R Rao Satellite Centre and a significant scientist on the Chandrayaan 3 mission, these vital components are in charge of removing heat from satellites and assuring effective operation. It is important to note that Isro has made admirable strides toward self-reliance, with 60% of satellite components being produced in India. The objective of obtaining 100% Making satellite components in India is a big step toward becoming technologically independent.
According to Basavvraaj B Ajrri, “placing the Vikram rover on the south pole of the Moon for the first time has permanently etched our country’s name in space history.” “No other nation has accomplished this feat, and Isro and its hardworking team members deserve all the credit.”
On August 23, 2023, Chandrayaan-3 carried out a soft lunar landing successfully, making India the fourth country in the world to do so. As the first nation to set foot close to the South Pole, which is thought to contain substantial amounts of water ice, India also made history. If this ice is accessible, experts say it might be harvested for rocket fuel and life support in upcoming crewed flights.
Isro’s Chandrayaan-3 mission has received funding from a variety of private businesses. The crucial systems and supporting systems that Tata Consulting Engineers Limited (TCE) built were instrumental in the launch of Isro’s Chandrayaan-3, India’s third lunar mission. TCE, the largest engineering and project management firm in India, developed special, locally produced critical systems and sub-systems that were designed specifically for space mission launches. The solid propellant plant, vehicle assembly facility, and mobile launch pedestal are all products of the company’s engineering efforts.
According to reports, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) provided a number of parts for India’s Chandrayaan-3 moon mission. The business disclosed that while the ground and flight umbilical plates were made at its aerospace manufacturing facility in Coimbatore, components like the “middle segment and nozzle bucket flange” were created at its Powai location.
Ananth Technologies (ATL) helped to develop several of the avionics packages for the launch vehicle (LVM3), including the on-board computers, navigation system, control electronics, telemetry, and power systems. The company also completed numerous interface packages, power switching modules, relay and balancing units, and other components for the most recent launch. ATL successfully developed a number of significant satellite systems for the Chandrayaan-3 program, including telemetry, telecommand, power management systems, and DC-DC converters for the mission.
The software that the Pragyaan rover uses to process photos was created by Omnipresent Robotic Technologies Ltd. The Vikram Processor (1601 PE01) for LVM3 launch vehicle navigation and the CMOS Camera Configurator (SC1216-0) for the Vikram lander imager camera were both created by Semiconductor Laboratory (SCL).
