India to make 3D printed rocket engines

July 14, 2022

Space-tech startup Agnikul sets up India’ first 3D-printed rocket engine facility in Chennai. Based out of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, Agnikul is arguably the only company to have designed a semi-cryo rocket that could be built as a single of 3D-printed hardware. The startup is currently building the country’s first private small satellite rocket, Agnibaan, with a capacity to carry up to 100 kg of payload to low Earth orbits up to 700 km. The rocket will have the capability for a plug-and-play engine configuration that is configurable to precisely match the mission's needs.
