The Arkyd-6 spacecraft has successfully launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre onboard PSLV-C40 and has entered into its target orbit.

The Arkyd-6 will validate water detection technology and cost-saving design methodology.

The team has already begun to receive telemetry from the spacecraft. The data obtained from the Arkyd-6 will be valuable in the development of the Arkyd-301, Planetary Resources' next spacecraft platform and the beginning of the company's space resource exploration program.

In the process of engineering the Arkyd-6, the Planetary Resources' team was able to modify commercial hardware to be used in space, allowing for the possibility of deep-space missions at greatly reduced costs. This process also allows for control at every stage of development and production resulting in a reliable and innovative product.
