Bangla Hunt Desk: Hyderabad-based startup Skyroot Aerospace has successfully tested the rocket engine 'Raman'. According to a top official of the company, this engine is capable of placing several satellites in separate rooms at once. Founded by a former scientist at the Indian Space Research Organization, Skyroot is building India's first private space launch vehicle.
Pawan Kumar Chandana, co-founder and former chief executive officer (CEO) of Skyroot, said, ‘We showcased India’s first 100 per cent 3 D-printed bi-propeller liquid rocket engine injectors. Its total volume is 50 percent less than the traditional production and the total number of components is less. This engine can be started many times, so this rocket is capable of placing several satellites in separate orbits in one mission. ”
