(Delivery of the Two Sessions) Committee Member Jiang Jie: The Jielong 3 rocket is expected to fly for the first time in September. This year, 2 to 3 rounds have been initially arranged

  China News Service, Beijing, March 5th (Ma Shuisha) Jiang Jie, member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and chief engineer of the First Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, said in an exclusive interview with a reporter from China News Agency recently that the Jielong-3 carrier rocket In 2022, 2 to 3 launch missions have been initially arranged, and the first flight is expected to be completed in September. The Long March 11 carrier rocket will have 4 to 5 launch missions, of which 1 to 2 commercial launch missions are expected.

  Jiang Jie said that in recent years, China's domestic commercial launch market demand has developed particularly rapidly.

With the gradual release of satellite manufacturing and application authority by national policies, private enterprises have actively entered the aerospace field outside the traditional space launch market, and commercial satellites have become the main means and the best entry point.

With the characteristics of low technical threshold, medium and low orbit satellites are becoming the main development direction of commercial satellites, and the market will continue to grow in the future.

  The First Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation has also built solid launch vehicles for the commercial aerospace market, including the Jielong 3 launch vehicle and the Long March 11 launch vehicle.

  Jiang Jie said that the Jielong-3 carrier rocket is expected to complete its maiden flight in September this year, and 2 to 3 launch missions have been initially arranged in 2022. After 2023, it will meet no less than 5 missions per year, and it will increase year by year.

The Long March 11 carrier rocket has been undertaking commercial launch missions in recent years, and has sent dozens of small satellites into space. There are 4 to 5 launch missions this year, of which 1 to 2 commercial launch missions are expected.

  According to reports, the Long March 11 carrier rocket is the first solid carrier rocket in China's Long March series family, and it is also the first all-solid carrier rocket suitable for multi-state launch.

The Long March 11 carrier rocket has the characteristics of a short launch period and low requirements for the support of the launch site facilities. It can be launched on land or at sea. It is mainly used to support the rapid networking and supplementary launch of civil and commercial small satellites and constellations.

  The Jielong-3 carrier rocket is a four-stage solid carrier rocket, which can be adapted to three transportation modes of road, railway and sea. It can be quickly launched on the roadbed and sea, and can achieve zero-window, all-round launch, and complete the star-rocket technical preparation and launch within 72 hours. The launch mission has high cost performance and applicability.

  The "Jielong" series of solid launch vehicles pursues the goal of "high cost performance, high reliability, fast performance and fast launch", and provides reliable, convenient and economical exclusive launches for domestic and foreign commercial satellite users for constellation networking, network supplementation, and payload verification, etc. , timed orbital launch and launch services.
