The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) successfully conducted the autonomous test landing mission of the Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) at the Aeronautical Test Range (ATR) in Karnataka’s Chitradurga city on Sunday. 

The Indian space agency said in a statement that “India achieved it. ISRO joined by DRDO successfully conducted the Reusable Launch Vehicle Autonomous Landing Mission (RLV LEX) at the Aeronautical Test Range (ATR), Chitradurga, Karnataka in the early hours on April 2, 2023.”

In the early hours, RLV was launched by an Indian Air Force Chinook helicopter and it completed an autonomous landing using the ATR’s integrated navigation, guidance and control system. 

ISRO added that “LEX utilized several indigenous systems. Localized Navigation systems, instrumentation, and sensor systems, etc. were developed by ISRO.”

“ISRO had demonstrated the re-entry of its winged vehicle RLV-TD  in the HEX mission in May 2016. The re-entry of a hypersonic sub-orbital vehicle marked a major accomplishment in developing Reusable Launch Vehicles,” it said.

“The LEX began with an Integrated Navigation test in 2019 and followed multiple Engineering Model Trials and Captive Phase tests in subsequent years,” the statement read.
