I S R O Sets Up 3rd Launch Pad at Sriharikota


New Delhi, March 13, 2015: State run Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) proposes to set up a new launch pad referred as Third Launch Pad, at Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, in Nadhra Pradesh. .

The Third Launch Pad is intended to support increased launch frequency, launching requirements of future advanced launch vehicles and also serve as a redundant launch pad for the GSLV MIII class of vehicles. Detailed studies on possible concepts /options and preliminary configuration have been carried out.

The possible site for the Third Launch Pad has been identified in Sriharikota taking into account the safety distances and maximal utilization of existing launch pad facilities. However, further work on design of the launch pad will be taken up at an appropriate time after finalizing the configuration of the advanced launch vehicle, operationalisation of GSLV MIII, programmatic requirements and resource availability.
