Ambala firm provides technical support for ISRO satellite launch

Tribune News Service

Ambala, January 12

Ambala firm Vaiseshika Electron Devices gave technical and engineering expertise in the successful launch of ISRO’s 100th satellite PSLVC40, which was launched today.

The firm had installed and commissioned a 5 tonne capacity Digital Proving Ring with technical certification of American Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories at the Static Test Bed Facility at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota.

The Digital Proving Ring tests and checks the accuracy of load cells used in testing thrust capacity of rocket motor of a PSLV rocket before its launch. Another Digital Proving Ring of 100 tonne capacity will be installed within this year.

Such testing ensures that the motor of the rocket has been correctly designed for a successful launch. Any error or inadequacy in the thrust capacity can lead to a crash.

Dr Anil Jain, President, Vaiseshika Electron Devices, told The Tribune, “The Digital Proving Ring was commissioned nearly three months ago. The firm has been designing, manufacturing, producing, installing and commissioning various temperature sensors, thermocouples, microstructure examination system and measurement software, sensor calibration standards and load cell calibration standards to the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota and Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Thiruvananthapuram, since 2010 in various satellite projects. Vaiseshika has earlier installed calibration standards for MARS Orbiter Mission also.” “It was a proud moment for us as we have contributed in such a prestigious project. It is always a great feeling to do something for the country”, he said.
