Bengaluru-based Ankit Aerospace manufactured the prototype of a 3D- printed grid fin, a type of flight control surface to be used for the upcoming Gaganyaan or human spaceflight mission
Dhruva Space CEO Sanjay Nekkanti stated that based on the results of the Thybolt mission on November 26, the company intends to launch full-fledged commercial operations in the future.
Hyderabad-based startup Skyroot Aerospace is eyeing a window between November 12 and 16 for the launch of India's first privately-developed rocket, Vikram-S.
According to ISRO officials, the RLV wing body will be carried using a helicopter to an altitude of three to five km and released at a distance of about four to five km ahead of the runway with a horizontal velocity.
The maiden mission of Skyroot Aerospace, named 'Prarambh' (the beginning), will carry three customer payloads and is set for launch from Indian Space Research Organisation's launchpad at Sriharikota.
Dubbed as the Next-Generation Launch Vehicle (NGLV), ISRO Chairman S Somanath said the space agency was working on the design of the rocket and would like the industry to collaborate with it in the development.
Human Space Flight Centre (HSFC) director R Umamaheshwaran explained that the proposed manned space flight will travel a distance of 400 km from Earth and will last two to three days.
Anil Kumar is currently working as Associate Director, ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) here.
ISRO has been working on various technologies, including the one demonstrated with Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (IAD), last week.
The new space policy, which is expected to be unveiled soon, will remove most of the constraints faced by private players, who can look forward to building satellites, leasing out transponders, building launch vehicles and exploring the world of space-based applications.
At least 100 startups are active in the country's space sector building satellites, launch vehicles and even designing in-orbit refuellers for satellites that would otherwise have to be abandoned for want of fuel.
The successful testing of its satellite deployers clears the path for Dhruva Space for their satellite missions, Thybolt-1 and Thybolt-2, which would be aboard the PSLV C54, ISRO's upcoming commercial mission
India’s space technology ecosystem has an advantage because of its practices and policies, says Agnikul Cosmos cofounder Srinath Ravichandran
The performance of the engine met the test objectives and the engine parameters were closely matching with the predictions during the entire duration of the test on Wednesday, the Bengaluru-headquartered space agency said.

The twin-crown, dual time, titanium Apogee is priced at Rs 68,000. There is also the Rs 1.68 lakh Extraterrestrial, which has a meteorite dial and is limited to 50 pieces.
The pact inked on Wednesday enables building a virtual constellation of specified remote sensing satellites of BRICS space agencies and their respective ground stations will receive the data, ISRO said.
The Bengaluru-headquartered space agency had planned to launch its maiden human space flight mission 'Gaganyaan' by December 2021.
The robot was the centre of attraction at the inaugural session of the "Human Spaceflight and Exploration - Present Challenges and Future Trends" here on January 22.
The organisation had garnered high praise for the appointment of Vanitha and Ritu Karidhal as project director and mission director
Cartosat-3 is "a third generation agile advanced satellite having high resolution imaging capability".
The launch is tentatively scheduled to take place at 9.28 hrs on November 25 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, subject to weather conditions.
The image was captured by the Imaging Infrared Spectrometer (IIRS) payload on-board the latest lunar exploration mission, ISRO said in a statement on its website.
The function of this rover will be to carry out scientific experiments on the surface of the Moon.
