Made in India, for the world: this startup incubated at IIT Madras is an Uber for putting satellites in orbit

Made in India, for the world: this startup incubated at IIT Madras is an Uber for putting satellites in orbit

  • While the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has become a popular option to launch satellites from across the world at affordable rates, launching a small satellite remains a challenge.
  • For one, small satellites are often the last choice for a launch vehicle because launching their larger counterparts is more profitable – the more the weight, the higher the cost.
  • Countering this problem is an IIT Madras-incubated startup, Agnikul Cosmos.
  • There are no dedicated launch vehicles for these small satellites," he says.
  • Apart from building dedicated launch vehicles for small satellites, Agnikul's USP is its plug-and-play concept: its launch vehicles are way less complex when compared to large launch vehicles like PSLV and others.
