This is the second rocket to be launched by Skyroot. The first rocket was named Vikram-S. This is the first rocket in the country to be built by a private company. It was successfully launched last November.
Vikram-1 is a rocket designed with state-of-the-art technology. This rocket can carry a payload of about 300 kg into low earth orbit. Its body is made of carbon fiber. The inventor of the Indian space program, Dr. The Vikram series rockets are named after Vikram Sarabhai.
This rocket is designed to launch small satellites. It can launch multiple satellites. It uses 3D printed liquid engines. India and foreign countries can use this rocket to launch satellites and launch interplanetary exploration missions.
The lightweight yet robust construction will enable the rocket to withstand complex conditions during launch and perform well. The company claims that it can prepare and launch a rocket from any launch center within 24 hours.
The first launch of the rocket is expected to take place in early 2024. The rocket was also unveiled at the inauguration of SkyRoot’s new headquarters building ‘Max Q’ in Hyderabad. Union Science and Technology Minister Jitendra Singh inaugurated the headquarters.
