Vikas (Vikram A Sarabhai) Engine

VIKAS engines, short for Vikram Ambalal Sarabhai, is a family of liquid-fuelled rocket engines that were conceptualised and designed by the ISRO?s Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre in the 1970s. The early production of these engines depended on the imported French components, which were later replaced by domestically manufactured equivalents. They are used for the operationalization of the ISRO?s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) series.
The Indian space agency successfully conducted the third long-duration hot test of the engine for the core L110 liquid stage of human-rated GSLV MkIII vehicle. The test was conducted for 240 seconds from the ISRO?s engine test facility in Tamil Nadu.
