Pushpak – ISRO’s Reusable Launch Vehicle, Clears Landing Test

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) successfully conducted the third Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) Landing Experiment (LEX) on June 23 at the Aeronautical Test Range in Chitradurga, Karnataka. The experiment involved a winged vehicle named “Pushpak,” which was dropped from a Chinook helicopter at a height of 4.5 km. The vehicle autonomously navigated and landed precisely on the runway, demonstrating advanced guidance, navigation, and control systems. The test showcased high-speed landing capabilities, advanced sensor integration, and vehicle recovery and reusability. This success marks a significant step towards developing reusable launch vehicle technology, enabling more frequent and cost-effective space missions.
