Piątego sierpnia rakieta Proton-M wyniosła rosyjskiego satelitę telekomunikacyjnego Błagowiest.

Do startu rakiety Proton-M doszło w poniedziałek 5 sierpnia o godzinie 23:56 CEST. Start odbył się z kosmodromu Bajkonur w Kazachstanie. Na pokładzie tej rakiety znalazł się rosyjski satelita telekomunikacyjny Błagowiest. Po dziewięciu godzinach od startu misja została uznana za sukces – satelita znalazł się na prawidłowej orbicie.

Start Protona-M – 5 sierpnia 2019 / Credits – Roskosmos

Ten satelita Błagowiest ma masę startową 3227 kg. Jest to ostatni z czterech rosyjskich satelitów telekomunikacyjnych Błagowiest, które były umieszczane na orbicie GEO od sierpnia 2017. Ten Błagowiest otrzyma prawdopodobnie oznaczenie Kosmos 2539.

Był to drugi start rakiety Proton w 2019 roku – pierwszy nastąpił 30 maja. O ile na początku tej dekady rakieta Proton-M latała często (i dość często doświadczała awarii), o tyle w 2018 roku odbyły się tylko dwa starty, zaś w 2017 roku nastąpiły cztery loty tej rakiety. Coraz częściej pojawiają się zarzuty co do zawodności tych rakiet. Przykładowo, w kwietniu 2017 okazało się, że niemal wszystkie silniki rakiet Proton mają defekty – ponad 70 silników RD-0210 i RD-0212 wyprodukowanych dla NPO Energomasz przez Zakłady Mechaniczne Woroneż z przeznaczeniem do wykorzystania na drugim i trzecim stopniu rakiety Proton wymagały kompletnego remontu.

Warto tu dodać, że 2016 roku odbyły się tylko trzy starty Protonów, z czego jeden dla Europejskiej Agencji Kosmicznej (ESA) w ramach misji ExoMars. Co do tamtego lotu też pojawiły się wątpliwości, czy rakieta wykonała prawidłową pracę.

A Blagovest communications spacecraft lifted off Monday aboard a Proton rocket to complete a network of four relay satellites in geostationary orbit for the Russian military.

The Proton rocket lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 2156 GMT (5:56 p.m. EDT) Monday, according to Russia’s Tass news agency.

The Proton rocket arrived on its launch pad at Baikonur on Friday, according to Kazakh news reports, for final pre-flight preparations.

A Breeze M upper stage and the Russian military’s Blagovest No. 14L communications satellite were mounted on top of the 191-foot-tall (58-meter) Proton rocket.

Liftoff occurred at 2:56 a.m. local time at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, a sprawling spaceport in Kazakhstan under long-term lease from the Russian government. The Russian space agency did not provide a live webcast of the launch.

The launch was the third Proton flight of the year, eclipsing last year’s mark of just two Proton flights, the lowest annual launch date for Russia’s most powerful operational launcher since the 1960s.

Powered by six RD-276 first stage engines, the Proton booster fired off the launch pad at Baikonur with some 2.5 million pounds of thrust and headed toward the east-northeast. The Proton’s first stage shut down and jettisoned around two minutes after liftoff, followed by firings by the Proton rocket’s second and third stages to complete the launcher’s initial ascent into space.

The Breeze M upper stage separated from the Proton’s third stage around 10 minutes after liftoff, Tass reported.

Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian space agency, tweeted that the Proton rocket performed normally on Monday’s launch.

The Breeze M upper stage was programmed to kick off a series maneuvers to place the Blagovest No. 14L spacecraft into a circular geostationary orbit more than 22,000 miles (nearly 36,000 kilometers) above Earth.

The Blagovest No. 14L mission required four Breeze M engine burns, first to enter a preliminary low-altitude parking orbit, then to raise its altitude and reach an orbital inclination over the equator.

Deployment of the Blagovest No. 14L spacecraft from the Breeze M upper stage was planned more than nine hours after liftoff.

The Russian space agency said in a statement Tuesday that the Breeze M upper stage delivered the Blagovest spacecraft into the intended orbit.

Built at ISS Reshetnev’s satellite factory in Zheleznogorsk, Russia, the Blagovest No. 14L spacecraft is the fourth and final Blagovest relay platform ordered by the Russian Defense Ministry. The first Blagovest satellite, named Blagovest No. 11L, successfully launched on a Proton/Breeze M mission in August 2017, followed by Blagovest No. 12L in April 2018. The Blagovest No. 13L satellite successfully launched on a Proton rocket last December.

The Blagovest No. 14L spacecraft weighed more than 3 tons at the time of launch.

ISS Reshetnev says the Blagovest satellites provide high-speed internet, data communications, television and radio broadcasting, telephony and videoconferencing services.

The Russian military has previously said the Blagovest satellites have a dual-use mission, meaning they serve both military and civilian users.

Ariane 5 wynosi dwa satelity telekomunikacyjne (06.07.2019)
BY KRZYSZTOF KANAWKA ON 7 SIERPNIA 2019


Start Ariane 5 - 6 sierpnia 2019 / Credits - Arianespace

Szóstego sierpnia europejska rakieta Ariane 5 wyniosła dwa satelity telekomunikacyjne: EDRS-C oraz Intelsat 39.

Rakieta Ariane 5 wystartowała 6 sierpnia 2019 roku z kosmodromu Kourou o godzinie 21:30 CEST. Na pokładzie tej rakiety znalazły się dwa satelity telekomunikacyjne: EDRS-C oraz Intelsat 36. Oba satelity zostały uwolnione na prawidłowych orbitach geostacjonarnych transferowych (GTO), skąd “o własnych siłach” dotrą do wyznaczonych punktów na orbicie geostacjonarnej (GEO).

Na szczególną uwagę zasługuje satelita EDRS-C. Jest to europejski satelita telekomunikacyjny wchodzący w skład konstelacji European Data Relay System (EDRS). Ten system wspiera wymianę danych z satelitami na niższych orbitach oraz pojazdami kosmicznymi, Międzynarodową Stacją Kosmiczną (ISS) oraz stacjami naziemnymi. EDRS jest odpowiednikiem amerykańskiej konstelacji TDRSS.

(...) The EDRS system is similar to NASA’s Tracking and Data Relay Satellite, or TDRS, network, which began operations in the 1980s to close communications coverage gaps for spacecraft passing between ground stations. But unlike the U.S. system, the European data relay satellites carry laser communications links to enable super-fast transfers of information and imagery.

The EDRS network can transmit up to 40 terabytes of data per day, at a rate of 1.8 gigabits per second.

The European Commission’s Sentinel 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B Earth-imaging satellites are the anchor users of the European data relay system, which was developed in a public-private partnership between the European Space Agency and Airbus. (...)

The 7,023-pound (3,186-kilogram) EDRS C spacecraft was built by OHB in Bremen, Germany. The 14,550-pound (6.6-metric ton) Intelsat 39 communications satellite will join EDRS for the ride into space Tuesday. (...)

(...) Built by Maxar Technologies, Intelsat 39 will park itself over the equator at 62 degrees east longitude to begin a 15-year mission providing C-band and Ku-band services across Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

Intelsat 39 will replace the aging Intelsat 902 satellite at the 62 degrees east orbital location. Intelsat 902 launched on top of an Ariane 4 rocket from French Guiana in 2001.

Satellites for Intelsat, European lasercomm launch on Arianespace rocket
by Caleb Henry — August 6, 2019


The VA249 Ariane 5 launch marked the 105th mission using the European rocket, and third of 2019. Credit: Arianespace webcast.

WASHINGTON — Arianespace on Aug. 6 conducted its first launch since the failure of a Vega rocket a month ago, orbiting two satellites on an Ariane 5 rocket.

The Ariane 5 took off at 3:30 p.m. Eastern from Europe’s Guiana Space Center in South America, carrying the Intelsat-39 communications satellite and the EDRS-C laser relay satellite to geostationary transfer orbits.

The 6,600-kilogram Intelsat-39, riding in the rocket’s upper berth as is typical for heavier satellites on Ariane 5, separated 29 minutes after liftoff. EDRS-C, weighing 3,200 kilograms, separated another four and a half minutes later, completing the mission.

The launch is Arianespace’s seventh of the year, and third using the heavy-lift Ariane 5. Originally scheduled for July 24, the launch was delayed after the July 10 failure of a light-lift Vega rocket, the cause of which is still under investigation.

Arianespace declined to comment on the nature of the delay. The European Space Agency told SpaceNews the delay was to allow time for “spaceport reconfiguration” after the Vega failure, plus some last minute checks on EDRS-C.

Widening the SpaceDataHighway

EDRS-C, which stands for European Data Relay Satellite C, is an Airbus-operated satellite developed in partnership with the European Space Agency. It carries an optical terminal from German supplier Tesat-Spacecom to enable high-speed links with remote sensing satellites in low Earth orbits. Tesat-Spacecom developed the terminals with the German Space Agency DLR.

German manufacturer OHB built the EDRS-C satellite with help from three “sister companies,” OHB Sweden, LuxSpace, and MT Aerospace. EDRS-C is the second SmallGEO satellite from OHB, following Hispasat-36W-1, which launched in early 2017 on an Arianespace Soyuz.

British operator Avanti has a hosted payload on the EDRS-C satellite equipped with eight Ka-band spot beams. MDA Corp., now part of Maxar Technologies, supplied the payload, which completes Avanti’s fleet of four spacecraft.

EDRS-C is the second satellite in what Airbus brands the SpaceDataHighway. The dedicated satellite follows three years after the launch of a laser hosted payload on the commercial Eutelsat 9B spacecraft.

By linking LEO satellites with lasers and beaming data to the ground in Ka-band frequencies, the SpaceDataHighway can transmit information in near-real time, according to ESA and Airbus. That speed stands in contrast to relying solely on ground stations, which can leave users waiting hours for a LEO satellite to downlink its data.

Airbus’ anchor customer is the European Commission, which uses EDRS-C for the  Sentinel-1 and -2 series satellites in its Copernicus environmental satellite program. Following their launch in 2021, Airbus plans to use the SpaceDataHighway to link its four Pleiades Neo Earth observation satellites.

A capacity boost for Intelsat, Myanmar

Intelsat-39 carries a mix of traditional wide beam transponders and high-throughput spot beams, providing additional capacity for the company over Africa, Asia and Europe. Built by Maxar Technologies, Intelsat-39 will replace the 18-year-old Intelsat-902 satellite with upgraded capacity in C- and Ku-band.

Intelsat-902, also from Maxar, was designed to last 13 years. The government of Myanmar has been using capacity on Intelsat-902, rebranded as MyanmarSat-1, to support 2G and 3G services across the country.

Intelsat is similarly branding some of the capacity on Intelsat-39 as MyanmarSat-2 for the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Myanmar. The ministry plans to use the satellite to expand internet access as well as the reach of 3G and 4G services.

The government of Myanmar said in 2018 it agreed to pay $155.7 million to Intelsat for the MyanmarSat-2 C- and Ku-band capacity. Myanmar’s Presidential Office said the country eventually plans to operate its own communications satellite, but would start by leasing capacity. Myanmar will also seek to launch a low-cost Earth-observation microsatellite as a learning initiative in preparation for a communications satellite, the office said.

Intelsat confirmed signal acquisition for Intelsat-39 in a press release following the launch. The satellite is scheduled to enter service in the fourth quarter of this year.

Intelsat 39



Intelsat 39 will be the 61st satellite launched by Arianespace for Intelsat since the first mission at its service in 1983. It will replace Intelsat 902 (launched by Arianespace in 2001) at 62 degrees East. (...)

EDRS-C



The EDRS-C satellite is the second node of the SpaceDataHighway network. The SpaceDataHighway is the world’s first “optical fiber” network in the sky based on cutting-edge laser technology. It is a unique network of geostationary satellites permanently fixed over a network of ground stations that can transmit data at a rate of 1.8 Gbit/s It will help to improve environmental and security monitoring, disaster response and crisis management.

Arianespace’s Ariane 5 orbits key telecommunications payloads on its third launch of 2019
August 6, 2019


The afternoon launch of Flight VA249 provided a clear view of Ariane 5’s climb-out from French Guiana.

(...) Ariane 5 – which is delivered to Arianespace by ArianeGroup as production prime contractor – provided an estimated total lift performance of 10,260 kg. on today’s mission, factoring in Intelsat 39 and EDRS-C, plus hardware for the dual-payload deployment system.

“With this third Ariane 5 of the year orbiting our fifth and sixth GEO [geostationary orbit] satellites, our heavy-weight launcher reasserts its leading position on the GEO market,” said Luce Fabreguettes, Arianespace’s Executive Vice President – Missions, Operations & Purchasing. “Indeed, VA249 marks the 377th and 378th GEO satellites orbited by Arianespace! Let me congratulate all our partners who played their part in this success.” (...)

Start Atlasa 5 z AEHF-5 - 08.08.2019 / Credits -ULA

Ósmego sierpnia rakieta Atlas 5 wyniosła wojskowego satelitę komunikacyjnego AEHF-5.

Rakieta Atlas 5 w konfiguracji 551 wystartowała 8 sierpnia 2019 roku o godzinie 12:10 CEST. Start nastąpił z wyrzutni LC-41 na Florydzie. Start natąpił dzięki United Launch Alliance – operatora, który obecnie oferuje rakiety rodziny Atlas 5 i Delta 4, w tym dla amerykańskich użytkowników wojskowych i rządowych.

Warto tu dodać, że start tej rakiety nastąpił mniej niż 36 godzin po starcie rakiety Falcon 9, także z Florydy. W tak krótkim czasie nastąpiła “rekonfiguracja” stanowiska wsparcia kontroli lotu (Eastern Range). W 2017 roku nastąpiła modernizacja sprzętu, pozwalająca na szybsze przygotowanie kontroli do kolejnych startów. Od tego roku możliwe jest wykonywanie startów z Florydy co około 48 godzin. Ma to duże znaczenie, gdyż już teraz różne typy rakiet startują z Florydy, a kilka z nich może bardzo często latać.

Poprzedni satelita tej konstelacji został wyniesiony w październiku 2018 roku. Satelity Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) służą do wojskowej komunikacji na pasmach Ka i K. Satelity AEHF mają dostarczać łączność o dużej przepustowości dla amerykańskich, kanadyjskich, holenderskich i brytyjskich wojsk na całym świecie poprzez sieć satelitów operujących na orbicie geostacjonarnej GEO.

(...) Northrop Grumman supplies the communications payload for the AEHF satellites, which are designed to operate for at least 14 years.

Air Force officials anticipate a longer lifetime from AEHF 5, thanks to a high-energy boost from the Centaur upper stage. (...)

Thanks to the mission profile change, the AEHF 5 satellite separated in an orbit with a perigee, or low point, several thousand miles higher than achieved on the AEHF 4 launch last October. That means AEHF 5 will need to consume less of its own finite propellant supply to circularize its orbit, leading to a longer operating lifetime for the mission. (...)

Adding the cost of the Atlas 5 launch pushes the AEHF 5 mission cost to more than $1.2 billion.

A sixth AEHF satellite is scheduled to launch on an Atlas 5 rocket in March 2020, according to Air Force officials. (...)

An Atlas 5 carrying AEHF-5 lifted off at 6:13 AM EST from Space Launch Complex-41 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket on Thursday launched the fifth Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF-5) communications satellite for the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center. The Atlas 5 in the 551 configuration with five solid rocket boosters lifted off at 6:13 AM EST from Space Launch Complex-41 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

Approximately five hours, 40 minutes after launch, AEHF-5 separated and was deployed into space.

AEHF satellites provide secure, jam-proof connectivity for U.S. national leadership and deployed military forces. Atlas V rockets successfully launched the first four AEHF satellites in 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2018.

The AEHF-5 launch marks the 80th Atlas 5 mission since the inaugural launch in 2002 and the 10th in the 551 configuration with the Centaur upper stage and a five-meter diameter payload fairing.

The 6,500 kg. AEHF-5 completes a geostationary ring of five satellites providing global coverage for the United States and international partners Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

The Atlas 5 rocket’s Centaur upper stage completed first burn at 6:25 AM. At 6:29 AM launch data showed that the first burn by Centaur inserted the rocket into the target orbit as planned. The second main engine cutoff was confirmed for Centaur at 6:42 AM, completing the next step towards the targeted orbit to deploy AEHF-5. The rocket then began a five-hour coast away from Earth to reach the proper point in space for the third burn by the upper stage.

Thursday’s launch was the 251st flight of the hydrogen-fueled Centaur. For this mission, it carried an experimental cubesat as a rideshare payload.

On the way to its target orbit, the Atlas’ Centaur upper stage rocket released a cubesat that was riding as a secondary payload.

WASHINGTON — The Air Force’s Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF-5) communications satellite reached orbit on Thursday after it successfully separated from a United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket approximately 5 hours and 40 minutes after liftoff from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

On the way to its target orbit, the Atlas’ Centaur upper stage rocket released a cubesat that was riding as a secondary payload. “The mission is complete and successful,” said ULA spokeswoman Heather McFarland.

This was the first time the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center designed a mission where the rideshare payload separated prior to the anchor mission. SMC’s cubesat will be used to test orbital debris tracking technologies.

The engineering work to prepare the 12U cubesat to ride on the Centaur’s aft bulkhead carrier was done by Parsons as part of a five-year $100 million contract SMC awarded the company to serve as “launch manifest systems integrator.” Parsons leads a team that includes Adaptive Launch Solutions, Tyvak Nanosatellite Solutions and Moog.

Under the contract, Parsons is responsible for “manifest development, assembly, mission integration and technical analysis,” Carey Smith, Parsons’ chief operating officer, told SpaceNews. “The vehicle manufacturer does the actual connection,” she said.

It took the company about seven months from the time it was assigned the payload to get it ready for launch. As part of the SMC contract, Parsons can integrate payloads with any launch vehicle and uses six different types of multi-manifest carriers. Its next mission will be to integrate a secondary payload for the Atlas 5 launch of Landsat 9, a NASA Earth observation satellite projected to launch in December 2020.

It is up to SMC to determine if or where a secondary payload rides in any mission. “They decide where it goes, where the available margin is,” Smith said. “We help them with the configuration for how they would attach it.” For the AEHF-5 mission it was on the upper stage. It could also attach to the payload fairing where the primary sits on top of the secondary payload.

“We believe you’re going to see many more of these,” said Smith. “You could theoretically imagine multi-manifests going up with nearly every launch to take advantage of the available capacity.”

ULA Primed for 80th Atlas V Launch with USAF 'AEHF-5' Satellite Thursday Morning
By Ben Evans, on August 7th, 2019


An AEHF satellite during testing. Note tower-like feeder horns (top left) that face dish antennas atop spacecraft. Those will face Earth in space. They are specifically the “nullers” that will counter any hostile jammers that attack this warfighting satellite. Side mounted white dishes, and similar ones on opposite side fold out. Large dish is one of two large crosslink antennas to relay secure transmissions from one AEHF to another around the Earth. Small white antennas will form dozens of spot beams on entire hemisphere simultaneously. Photo Credit: Lockheed Martin

For the tenth time in its history, United Launch Alliance (ULA) will fly the most powerful member of its Atlas V fleet at 5:44 a.m. EDT Thursday, 8 August, when a 551 booster—boasting a 17.7-foot-diameter (5-meter) payload fairing, five strap-on solid-fueled rockets and a single-engine Centaur upper stage—rises from Space Launch Complex (SLC)-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.

Previously labeled “the bruiser” by ULA CEO Tory Bruno, the 551 will carry the fifth Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF-5) military communications satellite. Built by Lockheed Martin, this satellite will join its four cousins, launched between August 2010 and last October, in providing fast and secure communications to link civilian leaders with military assets, anywhere in the world. Thursday’s mission also marks the 80th launch by an Atlas V, tracing an ancestry (and an impressive success rate) back to its maiden flight in August 2002. (...)

(...) When operational, the 13,600-pound (6,170 kg) AEHF-5 will take its place as the fifth member of a “constellation” of high-powered satellites, providing fast and secure communications to connect civilian leadership with military assets, anywhere in the world. Built by Lockheed Martin in Sunnyvale, Calif., and with a “protected communications payload” developed by Northrop Grumman Corp., headquartered in Bethpage, N.Y., the AEHF system replaces the outdated Milstar network and—as its name implies—operates at extremely high frequencies (44 GHz uplink) and super-high frequencies (20 GHz) downlink and can relay communications directly, without the need to pass through ground stations. Their phased-array antennas help to eliminate potential sources of radio jamming and each AEHF can support data rates as high as 8.192 Mbits/sec. (...)

Almost five months since it last flew, United Launch Alliance (ULA) successfully closed-out a gap in missions on Thursday, 8 August, when its Atlas V 551 heavylifter roared aloft from Space Launch Complex (SLC)-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., laden with the latest Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF-5) military communications satellite, bound for geostationary orbit. The 551—numerically designated to identify a 17.7-foot-diameter (5-meter) payload fairing, five strap-on, solid-fueled rockets and a single-engine Centaur upper stage—took flight at 6:13 a.m. EDT.

Coming 145 days since the last ULA launch, back in March, this represents the longest span between two missions in the 13-year history of the Centennial, Colo.-based launch provider. It is ULA’s third flight of 2019 and the 80th launch by a member of the Atlas V fleet. (...)

Udany pierwszy lot Jielong
BY KRZYSZTOF KANAWKA ON 18 SIERPNIA 2019


Pierwszy start Jielong / Credits - CCTV

Siedemnastego sierpnia wystartowała po raz pierwszy rakieta Jielong. Jest to kolejna mała chińska rakieta nośna.

Do startu rakiety Jielong nastąpił 17 sierpnia o godzinie 06:11 CEST z kosmodromu Jiuquan. Na pokładzie tej rakiety znalazły się trzy małe satelity: Qiancheng-01, Xingshidai-5 i Tianqi-2. Lot odbył się prawidłowo i satelity zostały umieszczone na prawidłowej orbicie LEO.

Jielong to nowa konstrukcja rakietowa. Jest to mała czterostopniowa rakieta, która wymaga minimalnej infrastruktury startowej. Rakieta ma 23 tony masy startowej i jest w stanie wynieść około 150 kg na orbitę o wysokości 700 km.

Zapis telewizji CCTV o rakiecie Jielong / Credits – CCTV

W tym roku odbywają się kolejne starty nowych chińskich rakiet nośnych. Wydaje się, że dla Jielong bezpośrednią konkurencją jest rakieta Shuang Quxian, która po raz pierwszy wystartowała 25 lipca 2019. Parametry obu rakiet są bardzo podobne do siebie. W konstrukcjach “zagranicznych” dla tej rakiety bezpośrednią konkurencją wydaje się być amerykańsko-nowozelandzka rakieta Electron.

Producenci rakiety Jielong ogłosili już, że napłynęło do nich ok. 30 zamówień na starty. Trudno zweryfikować tę wartość, ale można założyć, że duża część z nich pochodzi z Chin.

JIUQUAN, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- China's new carrier rocket Smart Dragon-1 (SD-1), designed for commercial use, made its maiden flight on Saturday, sending three satellites into planned orbit.

The rocket, developed by the China Rocket Co. Ltd. affiliated to the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology (CALVT), blasted off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China at 12:11 p.m. (Beijing Time).

The three satellites, respectively developed by three Beijing-based companies, will be used for remote sensing services, communication and Internet of Things.

Different from the carrier rockets of the Long March family, the new Dragon series is developed in a commercial mode to meet the market demand of launching small commercial satellites, said Wang Xiaojun, head of CALVT.

The SD-1, with a total length of 19.5 meters, a diameter of 1.2 meters, and a takeoff weight of about 23.1 tonnes, is a small-scale solid-propellant carrier rocket capable of sending 200 kg payloads to the solar synchronous orbit at an altitude of 500 km.

"It has the highest carrying efficiency among China's current commercial solid-propellant rockets," said Gong Min, technical manager of the SD-1 project.

It took less than 18 months to develop SD-1, which is the shortest period to develop a new type of carrier rocket in China.

Intelligent technologies are used to analyze the data of the rocket, which will help improve its efficiency and accuracy, said Gong.

The designers of SD-1 have made efforts to lower the costs and improve the efficiency and reliability of the rocket, said Tang Yagang, president of the China Rocket Co. Ltd.

One such rocket can be produced in six months after business agreements are signed with customers. After the rocket is transported to the launching center, the launch can be realized within 24 hours. The rocket can be used for launching either single satellite or multiple satellites at a time, according to Tang.

Tang said the company mainly relies on social financing to develop SD-1 to lower its cost through competition.

"Commercial launching will have a vast market in the fields such as low-Earth orbit Internet mobile communication and remote sensing," Tang said.

The company plans to complete five launches of SD-1 by the end of 2020.

In addition to the Smart Dragon solid-propellant carrier rockets, CALVT will also develop liquid-propellant commercial rockets, which will have a higher carrying capacity, according to Tang.

China successfully tested the technology that can accurately control the falling of rocket remains during a launch on July 26, which laid the foundation for developing reusable carrier rockets.

"We have stepped up the development of reusable launching vehicle, which is expected to be realized in the coming two to three years," said Tang.

China has accelerated the development of the commercial space industry. Social capital and private companies are encouraged to help promote China's space technology through innovation.

China’s Jielong 1 smallsat launcher successful on first flight
August 17, 2019 Stephen Clark

(...) The Jielong 1 carried three satellites on Saturday’s launch.

One of the microsatellites, owned by a Beijing-based company named Qiansheng Exploration Technology Co. Ltd., weighed around 140 pounds (65 kilograms) at the time of launch. The spacecraft hosts an Earth-imaging instrument with a resolution of less than 6.6 feet (2 meters), could pave the way for a fleet of Earth-observing satellites from Qiansheng.

A small Earth observation satellite named Xingshidai 5, owned by Chengdu Guoxing Aerospace Technology Co. Ltd., was also aboard the Jielong 1 rocket Saturday. An experimental data relay satellite named Tianqi 2, developed by Guodian Gaoke in Beijing, was the third payload on Saturday’s launch.

The Jielong 1 rocket was developed by China Rocket Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of CALT, a government-owned enterprise. CALT builds most of China’s workhorse Long March rocket family, which includes the country’s oldest and most-flown launchers.

In a statement after Saturday’s launch, which Chinese officials did not publicize in advance, CALT said the Jielong 1 rocket measures 64 feet (19.5 meters) tall and nearly 4 feet (1.2 meters) in diameter. At takeoff, the rocket weighs around 51,000 pounds, or 23.1 metric tons.

The new rocket can lift up to 440 pounds (200 kilograms) of payload into a 310-mile-high (500-kilometer) sun-synchronous orbit, according to CALT.

The Jielong 1 rocket is the fourth new Chinese solid-fueled smallsat launcher to debut in the last 10 months. All have roughly the same carrying capacity to low Earth orbit.

A Chinese startup named i-Space became the first private firm in China to launch a rocket into orbit July 25, when it launched the Hyperbola 1 booster and several small satellites from Jiuquan. (...)

Rakieta OK, nie ma jeszcze oficjalnego potwierdzenia rozłożenia paneli baterii słonecznych satelity.

EDIT: Ponoć rzeczywiście coś jest nie tak, ale nie wiadomo co i jak bardzo nie tak...
