Skyroot launches India's first private sector rocket

18 Nov 2022 , 03:32 PM

India began a new era in the space industry with the successful sub-orbital launch of the Vikram-S rocket by the private company Skyroot Aerospace from Sriharikota’s Satish Dhawan Space Center on Friday.

The Prarambh Mission:

It was the first time in India that a privately constructed and operated launch vehicle was launched, making the Prarambh mission significant.
This past Friday at around 11.30 am, Skyroot made history in front of a crowded gallery audience at the space centre and millions more viewers online. India allowed for the construction of rockets and satellites by private companies in the space industry in 2020. The aircraft was declared to have reached hypersonic velocity 80 seconds after takeoff, and it reached its greatest height of 89.5 kilometres after 155 seconds.

Vikram-S: The Rocket

Eighty percent of the technology that will be employed in the Vikram-1 orbital vehicle, scheduled for launch next year, are being tested by the Vikram-S rocket. According to the business, it carries three customer payloads that are intended to measure and validate specific flight parameters and payload integration procedures. The business has conducted a number of testing procedures inside ISRO’s test facilities aside from the launch assistance.

About Skyroot:

With around $68 million raised so far, Skyroot is one of the most financially supported startups in India’s space industry. In addition to Skyroot, Chennai-based Agnikul Cosmos also intends to launch its rocket Agnibaan on a full-scale commercial mission by April 2023.
