- The Chandrayaan-3 lander has successfully completed the crucial EMI-EMC (Electro – Magnetic Interference/ Electro – Magnetic Compatibility) test.
Chandrayaan 3 mission
- Chandrayaan-3 is India’s third moon mission.
- It is a follow-on mission to Chandrayaan-2
- The mission aims to demonstrate end-to-end capability in safe landing and roving on the lunar surface.
- The mission is slated to be launched by Launch Vehicle Mark 3 (LMV3) or GSLV Mk III from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota.
- Chandrayaan-3 interplanetary mission has three major modules: the Propulsion module, Lander module, and Rover.
- It will not include any orbiter like Chandrayaan 2.
- The rover of this spacecraft will communicate to earth via an orbiter taken from Chandrayaan 2.
- The propulsion module will carry the lander and rover configuration till 100km lunar orbit.
- The propulsion module has Spectro-polarimetry of HAbitable Planet Earth (SHAPE) payload to study the spectral and polarimetric measurements of Earth from lunar orbit.
- This exploration will not limit to the surface but aim to study the sub-surface and exosphere.
What is EMI-EMC Test
- The EMI-EMC test 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.
