Godrej Aerospace (GA), a business unit of Godrej & Boyce Mfg Co, has contributed to the recent record satellite launch mission of ISRO by manufacturing critical systems and components for the launch vehicle. The second stage liquid propulsion engine and the fourth stage reaction control system components for the launch vehicle were manufactured by GA.
In a massive show of strength and prowess, ISRO’s PSLV C37 rocket has successfully launched 104 satellites, the most in a single mission anywhere in the world. This was a mammoth leap from the previously held record of 37 satellites by Russia in 2014 and 29 by NASA in 2013.
Kaustubh Shukla, Chief Operating Officer, Industrial Products Group, Godrej & Boyce said, “Godrej Aerospace is proud to be partnering with ISRO since 1985 on several break-through missions including the record that was set today. It is remarkable that out of 104 satellites, around 100 are from foreign countries including the US, UAE, Israel, the Netherlands, Kazakhstan and Switzerland. This proves that India is trusted globally for its technology, innovation and capabilities, which has become a mark of ‘Make in India’.
