What are sounding rockets:

Sounding rockets are one- or two-stage solid-propellant rockets that are used for investigating the upper atmosphere and doing 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.

A hybrid-propellant rocket is a rocket with a rocket motor that uses rocket propellants in two different phases: one solid and the other either gas or liquid. The establishment of the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) in 1963 at Thumba, near the magnetic equator, marked a jump in the scope of aeronautics and atmospheric sciences in India. The launch of the first sounding rocket from Thumba near Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala on 21 November 1963, marked the beginning of the Indian Space Programme
