VEDA - Defense Satellite Launch Vehicle - DRDO
« on: 07/23/2023 06:17 pm »
ASL (Advanced Systems Laboratory), DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) has been working on a satellite launch vehicle to launch DRDO's defense satellites.

Project name is VEDA (Vehicle for Defence Application).

Details are scarce (expected for DRDO projects). Looks like DRDO wants to have their own dedicated launcher instead of relying on ISRO. It seems this could be launched from a mobile launch platform.
