Small Satellite Launch vehicle (SSLV) will be assembled in Vehicle Assembly Building over Mobile Launch Pedestal (MLP). The Bogie system will lift the MLP using four hydraulic jacks on each corner. The Bogie will be having 4 sets of wheels on each corner and each set is  having  2  numbers  of  steel  wheels  of  1.2m  diameter. Bogie  moves  on  6.5-meter  gauge with  8  nos  of  double  flange wheels rail  track  along  with  integrated  vehicle,  which  is pulled/pushed  by  SPU,  moving  on  the  road  from  vehicle  assembly  building  to  launch  pad which is 1400m away from Assembly building.

Self-Propelled Unit (SPU) is connected to bogie by tow bar system. Bogie is fitted with  tow  hitch  at front  face  at one  side  and  is  connected  to  Self-Propelled Unit using  Tow bar.  The  entire  Bogie  + MLP  +  Launch  Vehicle,  weighing  500t,  is  being  Pulled  or  Pushed, using proposed SPU. MLP will be transported from Launch Pad to Service Building and service building to First  stage  assembly  building  by using SPU  as  a  payload.  Throughout  the  transportation activities, SPU moves on the concrete paved road.
