 The facility has two sections: the Agnikul launchpad (ALP) and the Agnikul mission control centre (AMCC). These were designed by Agnikul and executed in support of ISRO and IN-SPACe. All critical systems connecting these two sections are 4 km away from each other and are redundant to ensure 100% operationality during the countdown. 

Liquid stage controlled launches can be supported by this launchpad while addressing the need for ISRO’s range operations team to monitor key flight safety parameters during such launches. The facility also has the ability to share data and other critical information with ISRO’s Mission Control Center as and when needed.
