Satellite imagery has unveiled significant progress in the construction of DRDO’s joint LRDE-GTRE Test Facility Centre in Rajankunte, India. Notably, GTRE’s Twin Test Cell, a pivotal component capable of testing future engines surpassing 130kN thrust, stands out in the images.

The development of DRDO’s joint LRDE-GTRE Test Facility Centre in Rajankunte, India, marks a significant stride in the country’s indigenous engine development capabilities. Groundwork for the facility, including Civil Works and Allied Services for the Engine Test Facility, commenced in September 2023. Consultancy work began two months prior, in July 2023.

Construction is scheduled for completion by October 2025, with a commendable emphasis on awarding the majority of the work to Indian vendors. This approach not only enhances domestic expertise but also fosters self-reliance in India’s aerospace sector.

The upcoming facility will possess the capacity to test a diverse range of engines, including those utilizing Axi-symmetric nozzles and the more advanced Thrust Vectored Nozzles (TVN). This versatility will play a pivotal role in driving India’s development of cutting-edge propulsion systems for future fighter jets and advanced aerospace vehicles.
