successfully launches and lands starship (Vishnu AtomShip) prototype rocket
Final year students (Mr. M. VenkataRamana, Mr. P. ManideepSai, Mr.S.Praveen Kumar, Mr.V.BalaBhavani Shankar, Mr.M.VenkataKiran, Mr.P..Suresh Kumar, Mr M.PrudhvirajNaik&Mr.T.Mohit) of Mechanical Engineering Department, developed a prototype model of automatic landing of a star ship (Vishnu AtomShip) by using advanced and sophisticated softwares under the guidance of Dr. I. Ramu, Professor of MechEngg.
On 27th August 2021, we conducted a test launch of Vishnu AtomShip at Society's - Science, Technology & Innovation Hub, Yanamadurru.
The main objective of this project was to Design and develop automatic landing of a star ship. Proximal Policy Optimization (PPO) algorithm was used to control the flight. The key features of Vishnu AtomShip are
Altitude range: 600 to 800 m
Motor class on Superheavy: J class dual clustered motors
Motor class on Starship: I class TVC enabled motor
Parachute ejection for Superheavy stage
Magnetic suspension enabled landing legs for Starship
Onboard dual flight computers in Starship for controlled descent and landing maneuver
