Technology start-up Agnikul announces locally manufactured rocket engine

To launch an integrated 3D printing engine in 2022, the technology start-up has entered into multiple agreements with various stakeholders to directly facilitate efforts

At the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) and the World Exposition in Dubai, Agnikul Cosmos, a space technology start-up based in IIT Madras, unveiled the Agnilet, a full-fledged second-stage rocket engine.

Test-launched by the Agnikul in early 2021, the Agnilet is the world’s first fully designed and manufactured integrated 3D printing engine in India.

To launch an integrated 3D printing engine in 2022, the technology start-up has entered into multiple agreements with various stakeholders to directly facilitate efforts.

“By announcing Agnikul’s engine at the global stage such as IAC, we were able to introduce the capabilities of Indian space technology start-up to the international community and sign contracts with multiple commercial players such as NPC Spacemind and Precious Payload“, MoinSPM, co-founder and COO Agnikul, said in an official statement on Friday.

As NPCs manufacture advanced satellite subsystems and small satellite deployments, Agnikul has signed a MoU with NPC Spacemind to provide customers with an end-to-end solution.

Another contract with Precious Payload has been signed to gain global access to our customers. “We’ve been tracking some interesting small satellite launch projects, and Agnikul is one of them … I’m happy to add Agnibaan, a customizable and scalable rocket”, said Precious Payload CEO. Andrew Maximov said in a statement.

The technology start-up has also signed another contract with India-based Asaco. This helps start-ups implement the various structural subsystems of Agnibaan.

Under the IN-SPACe initiative to access space agency expertise and facilities for building rocket engine, the technology start-up signed an agreement with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) in December 2020.
