SLV- III was responsible for injecting Rohini, a series of satellites into the NEO (near-Earth Orbit). Indians had not even dreamt about the satellite, but Dr. Kalam made it possible.
He directed the projects for the development of Ballistic Missiles
Dr. Kalam was leading a project name devil and valiant which had the vision to develop ballistic missiles using the same technology as the satellite Launch vehicle. Under this program, they have built many missiles including AGNI and PRITHVI, Agni is an intermediate ballistic missile while Prithvi is a surface to surface missile.
Dr. Kalam played a major role in developing the Pokhran-2 from which he earned the title of the best nuclear scientist in the country. It consists of 4 detonations, the first was a nuclear fusion bomb and the other four were nuclear fission.
