Chennai-based space startup Agnikul is gearing up for a historic launch! They have confirmed that their sub-orbital rocket, Agnibaan SOrTeD, will lift off from Sriharikota sometime between March 22nd and 28th, 2024. This will mark India’s second private space launch, following Skyroot’s successful Vikram-S launch.

Agnibaan SOrTeD is a single-stage launch vehicle powered by a revolutionary engine – the Agnilet. This engine holds the distinction of being entirely 3D-printed, a single-piece, 6 kN semi-cryogenic marvel. Unlike traditional sounding rockets that require launch rails, Agnibaan SOrTeD will take off vertically, following a predetermined path and performing a series of precise maneuvers during its flight..

According to Agnikul’s statement, this suborbital mission serves two key purposes. Firstly, it acts as a critical validation test for their proprietary autopilot, navigation, and guidance systems. Secondly, it provides a valuable opportunity to assess the launchpad’s capabilities for future, more ambitious endeavors.

With this upcoming launch, Agnikul is poised to make a significant contribution to India’s rapidly growing private space sector. The success of Agnibaan SOrTeD will pave the way for further advancements in domestic space technology and open doors for exciting future missions.
