The test, it said: “Is conducted for satellite missions to ensure the functionality of the satellite subsystems in the space environment and their compatibility with the expected electromagnetic levels. This test is a major milestone in the realisation of the satellites.”
Reiterating that the Chandrayaan-3 mission has three major modules: the Propulsion module, Lander module, and Rover, Isro said, the mission’s complexity calls for establishing radio-frequency (RF) communication links between the modules.
“During the Chandrayaan-3 lander EMI/EC test, launcher compatibility, antenna polarization of all RF systems, standalone auto compatibility tests for orbital and powered descent mission phases, and lander & rover compatibility tests for post landing mission phase were ensured. The performance of the systems was satisfactory,” Isro said.
