GSLV MkIII launcher which is ISRO’s heavy-lift launcher is identified for the Gaganyaan mission. It has requisite payload carrying capacity for the Orbital module in a desired elliptical orbit. Process for the human rating of GSLV Mk-III is progressing well.
ISRO has wide experience in technological areas with respect to the Launch vehicle, spacecraft management, ground infrastructure, etc. ISRO has taken steps for the human rating of existing systems to ensure crew safety. In certain areas where ISRO lacks experience such as Human-centric systems, crew training, crew recovery, etc., ISRO is planning to collaborate with national and international agencies.
