About the Liquid Propulsion System Centre

Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre (LPSC) is the centre of excellence in the area of Liquid Propulsion for ISRO's Launch Vehicle and Spacecraft programmes. The activities are spread across Valiamala / Thiruvananthapuram, Mahendragiri and Bangalore

LPSC, Valiamala

LPSC Valiamala is the Headquarters and the centre is entrusted with the responsibility of research and development of Earth Storable and Cryogenic propulsion and delivers Engines, stages, associated control systems and components for Launch Vehicle and Spacecrafts.

Major Achievements include:

  • Liquid Rocket Stages and Control Power Plant for PSLV
  • Liquid stage for GSLV Propulsion system for GEOSAT and IRS spacecrafts
  • Propulsion system for SPE
  • Transducer development and production
  • LPSC delivered administration package of COWAA software ,which is currently being used across all ISRO centres

Major Projects under development are Cryogenic Upper Stage for GSLV-Mk II , Liquid rocket core stage & Cryogenic Upper Stage for GSLV-M3 vehicle and Semi-cryogenic development.

LPSC, Mahendragiri

Test facility is located at Mahendragiri in Tamil Nadu and is responsible for Assembly, Integration & Testing and Propellant storage & Servicing for launch vehicle engines & stages.

The major achievements of the centre are testing of Vikas engine, CUS engine, Steering engine in Sea level & HAT, PS4 engine, PS4 stage, PS2/GS2 and L40 stage development & qualification tests, CUS stage development test (in progress), Assembly & integration of flight stages PS2/GS2, PS4, L40 for PSLV & GSLV missions, LAM engine and AOCS thruster, HAT testing and Supply of propellant for Launch vehicle and spacecraft missions.

The centre also carries out R&D and TDP towards optimizing the test facilities, improving the coating process, etc.

LPSC, Bangalore

The centre located at Bangalore is responsible for Satellite Propulsion Systems Integration for GEOSAT and IRS programmes. The centre is also responsible for design and development of monopropellant propulsion system, System engineering, Transducer and Spacecraft propellant tanks. The centre is involved in R&D and TDP activities towards development of electric propulsion system, propellant gauging system for spacecraft, advanced transducers etc.

Major Achievements include:

  • Integration of propulsion systems for INSAT, GSAT, IRS class of satellites
  • providing propellant ervicing for launch and support for in orbit operation of the propulsion systems
  • Transducers development and production undertaken caters to launch vehicle, satellite propulsion system and facility requirements.
  • Monopropellant thruster developed and realised are used in IRS class of satellites
