The launch has achieved three consecutive successful launches of the Ceres-1 commercial rocket.Galactic Energy Space has maintained a 100% success rate, creating a new record for the development of private rockets in China. At the same time, the success of this launch also marks the beginning of "Ceres-1" from success to maturity, taking the lead in a new stage of large-scale commercial launch and delivery of private rocket models.
The Ceres-1 carrier rocket is a four-level light commercial carrier rocket independently developed by Galactic Energy Aerospace. The first, second and third stages adopt solid power, and the fourth stage adopts integrated liquid power of orbit control and posture control. Rocket diameter 1.4 meters, about 20 meters, take-off weight about 33 tons, 500 km solar synchronous orbit maximum capacity 300 kg, rocket level 4 adopts the overall / structure / power integration design, propellant minimum consumption rolling channel contracted control, distributed orbit control power system, 3D printed orbit control engine, vertical self-alignment innovative design, is the commercial launch market most cost-effective and competitive light rocket, can provide small satellite customers flexible exclusive, sharing, carrying and other customized launch services.
The Ceres 1 (Yao 3) · Xingguang carrier rocket launched a total of three commercial satellites, "Taijing 101 satellite, 02 satellite" developed by Beijing Micro nano Star Technology Co., LTD., For implementing optical remote sensing, image data return and ground image processing, Business operation of providing commercial business data services for forestry, agriculture, Marine and other users; The "Donghai No-1" micro-nano polarized light remote sensing satellite developed by Shanghai Eis Aerospace Science and Technology Co., Ltd., Multi-mode remote sensing detection technology for microminiature polarized light cameras, At the same time, to carry out a number of domestic independent and controllable key technologies for on-track verification, Lay a foundation for providing space-based satellite services and applications in the oceans and other remote areas. In addition, the mission was also equipped with the digital art logo of its partner Yujian Space, the artist Ren Zhe's sculpture work "New Journey to the West", and the group logo of NuNuo Health Science went into space together.
To better meet the commercial satellite customer demand for carrying capacity and space envelope, Ceres 1 rocket further fairing and rail pose control power system upgrade, after the upgraded fairing diameter increased to 1.6 meters, length increased to 5.2 meters, inside the cover total space reached 8.1 cubic meters, further optimize the loading space, improve the comprehensive delivery and launch service capability.
"Every step forward of Galactic Energy Aerospace cannot be separated from the company's clear and correct strategic goals and a professional and stable team.
