The Indian Space agency added that all the propulsion parameters during the test were found satisfactory. This comes after the Chandrayaan-3 lander successfully underwent EMI/EMC test early this year.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Tuesday announced the success of the flight acceptance hot test of the CE-20 cryogenic engine that will power the cryogenic upper stage of the launch vehicle for the Chandrayaan-3 mission.
"The hot test was carried out for a planned duration of 25 seconds at the High Altitude Test Facility of the ISRO Propulsion Complex at Mahendragiri in Tamil Nadu on February 24," It said in a statement.
The Indian Space agency added that all the propulsion parameters during the test were found satisfactory.
"The cryogenic engine will be further integrated with the propellant tanks, stage structures and associated fluid lines to realise the fully integrated flight cryogenic stage," ISRO said.
In a major development earlier, the Chandrayaan-3 lander successfully underwent EMI/EMC test.
EMI-EMC (Electro - Magnetic Interference/ Electro - Magnetic Compatibility) test is conducted for satellite missions to ensure the functionality of the satellite subsystems in the space environment and their compatibility with the expected electromagnetic levels.
Chandrayaan-3 is a follow-on mission to Chandrayaan-2 to demonstrate India's capability of the moon landing. ISRO plans to launch the mission in June from Andhra Pradesh's Satish Dhawan Space Centre.
It will be launched by Launch Vehicle Mark 3 (LVM3).
