Ya'll Nibbiars last year they were bootstrapped this year backings. And their ideas might be sound crazy but It's actually proposed by many in the past and even the Initial Proposals and Ideas for the Falcon Series was not different than this. And they are real deal they have office in Vakola and workshop in TTCs.

Ya'll Nibbiars wouldn't be suprised if such start ups eventually take by some foreign fund.
They will need to get funds from somewhere right? One good thing i saw was that the news of Mahindra investing in Agnikul. More than tatas i feel he is doing better in investing our new comers.

Reliance should fund any of their selected startups, few hundred millions is nothing for them but for startups it can be life savers and if lucky it will be a great and wise decision businesswise too eventually.

I feel afraid of woke virus, it destroyed ASTRA of USA more or less, they got into woke signaling and starting waving BLM flags instead of focusing on their rockets and they literally got sued by their customers after failed launches.

Agnikul Cosmos to patent 3D-printed rocket engine

Agnikul Cosmos, the space tech startup incubated at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, will apply for a patent for its full-scale, second-stage engine Agnilet, which it claims is the world’s first single-piece 3D-printed rocket engine. This means it’s been made in one shot without the thousands of parts that are typically assembled in a conventional rocket engine.

Agnikul Cosmos has also developed its own mobile launchpad, which allows it to launch rockets from any authorised port. The startup is awaiting final approvals from the Indian Space Research Organisation to launch its rockets from Sriharikota. By developing its own mobile launch pad, the startup is in a better position to scale up its business in the future.

Agnikul thinking of launching their vehicle by the end of the year. Sounds optimistic! But wonderful, if they carry it out.

So Agnibaan will also be launched from SriHariKota.
ISRO delivered Flight Termination System (FTS) packages to Agnikul
Agnikul Cosmos, a space technology startup based in Chennai, received its first flight termination system (FTS) on 7 November 2022, from ISRO, with the support of IN-SPACe.

The official handing over event happened marking the culmination of multiple rounds of interactions about interfacing, handling and using these systems on Agnikul’s launch vehicle "Agnibaan", in the presence of Director, VSSC and IN-SPACe teams.
This also marks the first time that a system that has been used for ISRO’s vehicles is being supplied for supporting a private launch vehicle built in India. The package will be used for their fully controlled sub-orbital launcher, scheduled to launch from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota.
