Space startup Skyroot Aerospace unveiled its Vikram-1 rocket. The rocket is expected to launch satellites to low earth orbit early next year. The new headquarters of the startup, called ‘The MAX-Q Campus’, was also inaugurated.
It is located at the GMR Aerospace and Industrial Park in South Hyderabad and is the largest private rocket development facility in the country. The Vikram-1 rocket is planned to be launched in early 2024.
This will be Skyroot’s second rocket, following the successful launch of the Vikram-S rocket on 18 November last year. The headquarters has integrated design, manufacturing and testing facilities for space launch vehicles. It also provides workspace for the 300-member strong workforce.
