Recent reports have revealed that the Central Tool Room & Training Centre (CTTC) in Bhubaneswar played a vital role in manufacturing several essential components for the mission. The manufacturing process, valued at approximately Rs 12 crore, encompassed the production of valves, internal navigation systems, temperature sensors, aerospace components, gyroscopes, RGPD components, and other crucial parts.
