[According to the Thai news website December 6, 2009 report] in January, India’s space agency test the developed world’s third largest domestic solid fuel rocket boosters (by length and fuel quality terms).
an Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) officials said the large solid-fuel boosters project was started ten years ago, in January 2010 reached the first milestone.
that weighs 200 tons of solid fuel rocket boosters used to design the next generation of ISRO’s Geosynchronous Launch Vehicle GSLV Mark III to power, booster test firing will be worth millions in India Sadi Shen ? Space Center. Combustion test is expected to continue 103 seconds.
GSLV Mark III solid rocket booster mass of 200 tons, 25 meters long, after the U.S. space shuttle booster (fuel mass 440 tons, length 37.8 m) and the European Ariane rocket boosters (240 tons of fuel quality, long 31.6 meters). The diameter of the new solid boosters of 3.2 meters, ranking second in the world. U.S. Space Shuttle and Ariane rocket in diameter were 3.6 m in diameter and 3.05 meters. The burning time of the order of, Ariane rocket is 130 seconds, the shuttle is 123 seconds, GSLV Mark III is 103 seconds. The United States is “God of War” -1 rocket developed larger first-stage solid rocket motor, its diameter is 3.77 meters long and 52 meters, can carry 625 tons of fuel, and the burning time is 123 seconds.
42.4 meters long, weighing 630 tons of GSLV Mark III rocket carrying India’s home in 2011 weighing 5 tons developed communications satellite launch. The three rocket first stage is tied to the second level of two identical solid boosters, the second level is the L110 restartable liquid level segment. The third stage is a cryogenic liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen to promote the level segment. Large payload fairing diameter of 5 meters.
ISRO existing GSLV rocket, such as three and four Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) carrying capacity is relatively low. Present GSLV can carry 2.5 tons of payload weight into geosynchronous transfer orbit, while the PSLV can carry 1.6 tons of satellites into polar orbit satellites or carry 1.1 tons into geosynchronous transfer orbit.
