Who made rocket?
India’s first private rocket, Vikram-S, has been developed by Hyderabad-based startup Skyroot Aerospace. The rocket will be launched on a sub-orbital mission, named Prambh, which will carry three payloads. Skyroot was the first startup to sign an MoU with ISRO to launch its rockets.

Apart from being the country’s first private launch, it will also be Skyroot Aerospace’s first mission, codenamed ‘Prarambh’. A total of three payloads will be carried into space. Two of these will be Indian customers and one will be a foreign customer. Skyroute aims to remove barriers to entry to affordable satellite launch services and space-flight by furthering its mission to make regular space flight affordable, reliable and accessible to all, the statement said.

Vikram-S Features
Established in 2018, Skyroot has successfully manufactured and tested India’s first privately developed cryogenic, hypergolic-liquid and solid fuel-based rocket engine, using advanced composite and 3D-printing technologies. Skyroot successfully raised $51 million through Series-B financing round in September this year. It had raised $11 million in Series-A capital raise in July last year.

Skyroot will become the first private company
With the successful launch of the mission, Skyroot will become the first private space company to launch a rocket into space from India. This will pave the way for the development of India’s private space sector which was opened in 2020. Since then, the country has been trying to attract private space companies to launch rockets from India. Skyroot’s launch vehicles are named ‘Vikram’ to pay tribute to Vikram Sarabhai, the founder of the Indian space program and renowned scientist. Skyroot Company was the first startup to enter into an MoU with ISRO to launch its rockets.

What is the objective?
The ultimate objective of opening up the space sector to private companies in India is to provide a conducive environment for cost-effective satellite launch services by breaking down entry barriers. This will help these companies advance their mission and make space flights affordable, reliable and regular for all.
