Sounding Rocket RH-560 Launched by ISRO

BENGALURU: In a major boost to research activities, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has launched the sounding rocket called RH-560 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) Sriharikota Range (SHAR), with the aim of studying attitudinal variations in the neutral winds and plasma dynamics.

According to the press communiqué issued by ISRO, “Sounding rockets are one or two-stage solid propellant rockets, which will be utilized for investigating the upper atmospheric regions for space research. “They also serve as easily affordable platforms to test or prove prototypes of new components or subsystems intended for use in launch vehicles and satellites. ISRO kicked off the process of introducing homemade sounding rockets in 1965 and experience acquired is quite significant in mastering solid propellant technology,” said ISRO.
