In a major milestone, we’re thrilled to announce #successful Proof Pressure Test (PPT) of ‘Kalam-250’ - the 2nd Stage of our #launch vehicle Vikram-1.

This was built with ultra-high-strength #carbon fibre and tested to the required maximum expected combustion pressure of 77 bar.

Hyderabad-based Skyroot Aerospace raises $51 million in Series-B funding

Hyderabad-based space tech startup Skyroot Aerospace has raised US $51 million (Rs 403 crore) in a Series-B financing round. This is the largest funding round ever in the Indian spacetech sector, a release by the company claimed.

In contrast, Accenture recently announced that it has invested $25 million in Pixxel in a series A funding round. Chennai-based Agnikul Cosmos has, as of now, raised $11 million in Series A funding and is reportedly raising further funds in a new round; Hyderabad-based Dhruva Aerospace, in October 2021, raised Rs 22 crore or around $2.7 million.

Singapore-headquartered GIC led the funding round. Mayank Rawat, Managing Director of GIC India Direct Investment Group will be joining Skyroot’s Board, the release said.

Rothschild & Co India were the financial advisors for this funding round. The added fund will help expand Skyroot’s engineering team which currently has close to 200 employees, a release by the company said.

Currently, Skyroot has been working on developing the country’s first privately developed space launch vehicles. Their Vikram series rockets are built with an all-carbon-fibre structure and can launch up to 800 kg of payloads to Low Earth Orbit (LEO).

No NOTAMS for PRARAMBH launch?

Private entity Skyroot may not publish Launch Brochure like ISRO does but NOTAM is aviation requirement?

Some from Twitter posted "Congratulations & so proud of this launch as an Indian & that too by such a young startup! One thing though, after the burnout, the rocket seems to have exploded or partially burnt off. See the image grab. Is that expected? Hopefully, this is of no worry "

Is it just me, or did the booster section slowly tear itself off?

India launches first private space rocket.

India successfully launches first private space rocket Vikram-S.

11:41 18.11.2022

NEW DELHI, November 18 - RIA Novosti. India on Friday conducted a successful launch of its first privately owned Vikram-S space rocket, the Indian Space Research Organization said .

"Prarambh mission successfully completed. Congratulations to Skyroot Aerospace! Congratulations to India!" the organization said in a statement on Twitter.

The rocket was launched from the launch site of the Indian Space Research Organization on the island of Sriharikot. It reached a maximum apogee of 89 kilometers, while the target was at a distance of 80 kilometers.

The boundary of space is considered to be a mark of 100 kilometers.

Earlier, Skyroot Aerospace, the developer, reported that the launch was scheduled between November 12 and 16, but its dates were shifted due to weather conditions.

The Vikram-S rocket is a single-stage suborbital launch vehicle, and its launch will help test and validate most of the technologies in the Vikram series of space launch vehicles, said Nag Bharat Daka, COO of the company.

The launch vehicles are named Vikram after the founder of the Indian space program and famous scientist Vikram Sarabhai.
