Agnikul Cosmos sets up India's first private Launch Pad, MCC at SHAR Range

Chennai, NOv 28 (UNI) Heralding a new era in the Indian
Space programme, space tech start-up Agnikul Cosmos
has set up its first private Launch Pad and Mission Control
Center (MCC) at Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC)
SHAR Range, Sriharikota.
It was inaugurated by ISRO Chairman S Somanath and this
private launchpad marks the beginning of a new era in Indian
Agnikul’s upcoming guided and controlled launch will be carried
out from this facility.
This is India’s first ever launchpad designed and operated by a
private player.
The facility which was designed by Agnikul and executed in support
with ISRO and IN-SPACe has two sections to it - the Agnikul Launch
Pad (ALP) and the Agnikul Mission Control Center (AMCC).
All critical systems connecting these two sections - which are 4 km
away from each other are redundant to ensure 100% operationality
during countdown.
The launchpad is specifically built keeping in mind the ability to support
liquid stage controlled launches, while also addressing the need for
ISRO’s range operations team to monitor key flight safety parameters
during launches.
Additionally it has the ability to, as necessary, share data and other
critical information with ISRO’s Mission Control Center.
