Bangalore: Fifty scientists from Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) have just completed a critical test on a gigantic piece of history directly linked to India's GSLV MK-III mission. Sources tell Express that the payload fairing (PLF), also known as the satellite protection system or heat shield, of the GSLV Mk-III has been put through rigorous dynamic qualification by the scientists at the Acoustic Test Facility (ATF) in Belur, near Bangalore. The state-of-the-art ATF is designed and built by NAL along with ISRO, to qualify Indian satellites and launch vehicle subsystems.
He said they are keen to launch a dedicated satellite for observation of South Atlantic region for climate forecasts. "It would be on trilateral level with India, Brazil and South Africa collaborating on it," he added. He also lined up other scientific areas where they would be collaborating. Areas like biotechnology, computers sciences, earth systems sciences including ocean sciences and climate change, engineering, health and biomedical sciences, material sciences and nano-technology are some of the areas identified for cooperation between the two countries.
