BANGALORE (BNS): Indian aerospace major Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has handed over the Mars Orbiter Mission Satellite Structure to ISRO Satellite Centre (ISAC) here recently.

"The satellite structure is an assembly of composite and metallic honeycomb sandwich panels with a central composite cylinder," said HAL Chairman RK Tyagi.

The Mar's mission is aimed at studying the climate, geology, origin and evolution of the red planet. The assembly work was carried out at HAL's Aerospace Division in Bangalore.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will build the other satellite subsystems and scientific payload onto this structure.

The completed satellite will ultimately embark on a nine month voyage to orbit planet Mars. During its orbit the satellite will be at a distance of 54.6 million kms away from Earth - the farthest any Indian satellite would have travelled.

ISRO plans to launch the Mars mission in November 2013.
