Kindly change thread title to ISRO Pad Abort Test, I nearly had a heart attack thinking Boeing or SpaceX pulled a fast one on us all.

Probably via FLP

It will be from a modified sounding rocket launch pad. FLP is occupied with C42 launch campaign at the moment.

Can someone confirm the IP address listed is "safe" (I know it should be, but it's annoying not knowing).

Just went to the IP address listed, and nothing bad happened to me - no virus warnings or anything like that. The page seems to feature some kind of dynamic geospatial tracking display in 3D, using both GPS and India's new NAVIC.

I doubt that any actual login is required - I think they just meant go visit that link.

 Excuse the ignorance from this layman, how is the module being sent up? And what is the size of it?  The last one launched, was of course the CARE experiment on board GSLV Mark 3-X in December/2014.  And that weighed about 3770kg.  Which vehicle/rocket is carrying it on this mission?

Launching from a modified large diameter sounding rocket pad with similar to Orion PA-1 and Dragon PA tests.

Meanwhile, let's grab all we can on images of the test vehicle, etc. Please post in this thread as I'm sure a lot of us are catching up on this crewed element to their space program.

Are they just testing an abort motor or will they be testing a capsule with parachutes as well? And if there’s a capsule inside the fairing, is it a prototype of the crewed spacecraft seen in drawings and illustrations, or something else?
I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.
