Unsatisfied necessity of high-tech flexible quick economic launches to space for Small-Satellites in exponentially booming space economy.
Rockets with reliable miniaturized low-cost solid and liquid propulsion systems and avionics capable of rapid mass-production and air/sea/mobile launches.
Lowest price in the sector worldwide with reliable launch capability from air, land or sea via mobile launch once in 72 hours and rapid-mass production capabilities to address the needs of establishing and maintaining space architectures for above industries and supporting testing of new technologies in space.
The engines developed - Raman (UDMH-N2O4-economic performance) and Dhawan (3D Printed Cryogenic Methalox - State-of-the-art internationally) - along with the Kalam Solid motor is the key to providing high tech at low cost.
Existing technologies are either advanced or low-cost or provides flexibility in terms of location or speed but the need for Small Satellite launches is addressed by a very small market currently and conventional launchers are not optimized to support Small Sats and compromise on quality or reliability or launch flexibility and can be expensive. Very, very few of them provide many of these benefits and even fewer provide all.
National Startup Award winner Skyroot Aerospace's Vikram launch vehicle does this at the lowest price tag which is much below the market average launch cost. Being a private launcher also means democratized access to space opening opportunities to students, researchers, small industries and all stakeholders at the lower end of the economic spectrum.
