India’s first private launch vehicle

India will send Vikram-S rocket into space between November 12 and 16, 2022 under the ‘Prarambh’ mission.

It will be sent by space technology startup, ‘Skyroot Aerospace’ which is an Indian startup related to aerospace business.

Vikram -S:

  • The Vikram-S rocket is India’s first privately developed rocket. The Vikram-S rocket is a one-stage sub-orbital launch vehicle that will carry three payloads.
  • Sub-orbital launch vehicles move slower than orbital velocity – that is, enough speed to reach outer space but not enough to stay in orbit around Earth.
  • It will help in testing and validation of most of the technologies in the Vikram series of space launch vehicles.
  • Skyroute is working on three different Vikram rocket versions.
  • Vikram-I can be launched with a payload of 480 kg, while Vikram-II can be launched with 595 kg, and Vikram-III with 815 kg can be launched into a 500 km low inclination orbit .

Prarambh Mission

  • The aim of the Prarambh mission is to carry 3 payloads into space, including a 5 kg payload that has been developed by students from several countries.
  • The first mission and the Vikram-S rocket were developed by a Hyderabad-based startup with extensive support from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and the Indian National Center for Space Promotion and Authorization (IN-SPACe).
