Agnikul builds launch vehicles (LV) that can take a payload of 100 kgs to Lower Earth Orbit (LEO). Our LV Agnibaan's first stage has 7 single piece 3D printed engines fed by electrically driven centrifugal pumps. Our vehicle is configurable and the number of engines can be changed according to the demands of the customer. We are working towards making space accessible to everyone. In conventional space missions, emphasis used to be laid on increasing the rocket size in order to accommodate larger and more number of payloads to be launched in a single shot. This forced the customers to entertain rideshares and higher waiting time. This in turn reduced space accessibility due to time and reliability for an increased number of components. Additionally the conventional tailored manufacturing process posed a big obstacle in production cost and time.

|Zero Gravity Corporation operates its customized unique B727 aircraft to provide parabolic flight experiences to a broad range of markets in the United States and globally. ZERO-G is the only FAA Part 121 certified U.S. Commercial Air Carrier able to provide these flights. In these flights our aircraft flies up and down – as if going up and down a series of gently rolling hills -- rising and falling about 10,000 feet creating simulated reduced gravity environments that last about 30 seconds. This flight profile produces a near exact sensation to what one would feel on Mars, on the Moon, or on spacecraft operating in space, depending on our flight profile. Our customers include individuals, corporate charters, a wide variety of research flights for leading global universities and space authorities, and media productions. ZERO-G operates extensively in the U.S., and our aircraft is available for international tours with the potential of forming a JV for an overseas zero-gravity operation|
