Kohima: The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has extended gratitude to Dr. Belenso T Yimchunger, a scientist from Nagaland, for his role in advancing Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) technology.

Dr. Belenso T Yimchunger, the son of a retired electrician, has a track record of innovation. He gained recognition for introducing the groundbreaking Pungro Power Soil in 2023, and before that, he pioneered the indigenous voice-activated control system 'Tiger' in 2022.

Dr. Yimchunger, alongside a team of distinguished individuals received commendations from ISRO's Chairman, Dr. S Somanath, acknowledging their invaluable contributions to RLV technology. Somanath also expressed ISRO's interest in future collaborations with Dr. Yimchunger and his team.

A recent significant milestone for ISRO was the successful landing mission of its winged RLV named 'Pushpak' from the Aeronautical Test Range (ATR) in Challakere, Karnataka. The RLV aims to test advanced technologies like hypersonic flight, autonomous landing, and powered cruise flight.

With an investment exceeding Rs 100 crore, the RLV project sets the stage for India's future space endeavors, including the establishment of India's own space station by 2035.
