Larsen & Toubro reveals role in ISRO’s LVM3 M4 Chandrayaan Mission


Larsen & Toubro (L&T), a prominent Indian multinational involved in EPC Projects, Hi-Tech Manufacturing, and Services, has been contributing significantly to India’s space program for over half a century.

The corporation is currently playing an instrumental role in the LVM3 M4 Chandrayaan Mission. Larsen & Toubro’s involvement in this mission spans from the manufacturing of subsystems to mission tracking.

It has fabricated critical booster segments, including the head end segment, middle segment, and nozzle bucket flange, each with a diameter of 3.2 meters. The manufacturing and proof pressure testing of these components were conducted at Larsen & Toubro’s facility in Powai.

Larsen & Toubro also provided ground and flight umbilical plates, produced at its hi-tech Aerospace Manufacturing Facility in Coimbatore. These essential elements of the space hardware were delivered ahead of schedule, meeting the strict quality and timeline prerequisites of India’s third Moon mission.

Furthermore, Larsen & Toubro has been instrumental in the system integration of Launch Vehicles for the Indian Space Programme. Notably, the Larsen & Toubro manufactured Precision Monopulse Tracking Radar (PMTR) at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota has been used for rapid acquisition and tracking of Launch Vehicles. The company has also commissioned the Deep Space Networking Antenna at Byalalu, a necessity for exploratory missions.

As a long-term trusted partner of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Larsen & Toubro has participated in the production of a wide range of hardware for every ISRO mission, including the lauded Chandrayaan-1 and 2, Gaganyaan, and Mangalyaan missions.

The LVM3 launcher, ISRO’s heavy-lift launcher, which is identified for the Chandrayaan mission due to its required payload carrying capacity for launching an Orbiter module in a desired elliptical orbit, also owes its development to the company.
