Brahmos and PSLV to get Strap-on Boosters from Solar Group

As the first domestic manufacturer of boosters for Brahmos missiles, Solar Groups of Nagpur has emerged. On July 14, it would also send ISRO the first batch of strap-on boosters. The booster is a crucial part of missiles that is essential to the launch itself. The missile receives its initial push from the boosters from which it can accelerate to Mach speeds or the speed of sound.

The missile is useless without reaching Mach level. The missiles ramjet engine powers them. However, the missile must reach a specific Mach speed in order for the ramjet engine to start working. Boosters are used to accomplish this. The Indo-Russian joint venture Brahmos Aerospace Private Limited produces the Brahmos missiles. The Brahmos missiles boosters were previously imported.

Solar Group responded to a search among industry stakeholders by Brahmos Aerospace for a supply of boosters. Economic Explosives Limited will also be giving ISRO the first batch of strap-on boosters, which is another development. These boosters are attached to PSLV rockets, as the name suggests. Compared to the strap-on boosters that ISRO is currently using, they are enhanced variants. The upgraded parts could make it possible for PSLVs to transport significantly more cargo.

Rocket-like components known as strap-on boosters are fastened to the satellite launch vehicles from the outside. In the PSLVs, strap-on boosters provide the rockets a more push so they can carry a heavier payload. The national space agency will receive strap-on boosters for the first time ever from a private player in this transaction. The business is also engaged in other crucial projects involving long-range missiles, rocket systems, and loitering weapons.
