Vikram-S: India’s first private rocket is scheduled to launch between November 12 and 16

The launch of India’s first privately developed rocket, Vikram-S, is scheduled for November 12 to 16, according to Hyderabad-based space startup Skyroot Aerospace.

Skyroot Aerospace’s first mission, named ‘Prarambh’ (the beginning), will carry three customer payloads and is scheduled to launch from the Indian Space Research Organization’s launchpad in Sriharikota.

Authorities have announced a launch window between November 12 and 16, with the final date dependent on weather conditions, according to Skyroot Aerospace CEO and co-founder Pawan Kumar Chandana.

Skyroot Aerospace will be the first private space company in India to launch a rocket into space, ushering in a new era for the space sector, which was opened up in 2020 to allow for private sector participation.

According to Naga Bharath Daka, Chief Operating Officer of Skyroot Aerospace, the Vikram-S rocket is a single-stage sub-orbital launch vehicle that will carry three customer payloads and help test and validate the majority of the technologies in the Vikram series of space launch vehicles.

Chandana stated that Skyroot was only able to build and launch the Vikram-S rocket in such a short period of time due to the invaluable assistance of ISRO and IN-SPACe (Indian National Space Promotion and Authorisation Centre).
