Wuxi company named "Gravity-1" - the world's largest solid launch vehicle made its first sea flight this year

On April 23, the 2023 China Aerospace Conference (CSC2023) opened in Hefei, Anhui. At the conference, a private aerospace company named Dongfang Space released the first rocket "Gravity-1". When the rocket was unveiled, it wore the blue and white logo paint of the Jiangyin company Heilan Home (6.530, 0.16, 2.51%). Pack. At the same time, Orient Space signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Heilan Home, and announced that the world's largest solid launch vehicle "Gravity-1" named by Heilan Home will make its maiden flight at sea in the fourth quarter of this year.

"Gravity-1" is the world's first all-solid bundled medium-sized launch vehicle. It is also one of the few commercial rockets in the domestic commercial aerospace field that is about to be put into use and can meet the needs of large-scale networking of low-orbit constellations and rapid launch of medium and large satellites. The biggest feature of "Gravity-1" is its large transport capacity. Its low-earth orbit carrying capacity reaches 6.5 tons, which can increase the capacity of the largest solid rocket in China by three times and reach the international leading level. It is expected to make a contribution to the increase of "space express" capacity. important contribution.

The domestic commercial aerospace "new force" Dongfang Space was established in 2020. It has innovatively developed the "Gravity" series of large and medium-sized commercial launch vehicles, including the world's largest solid launch vehicle "Gravity-1" and the core-level recyclable liquid medium and large launch vehicle. "Gravity-2" and "Gravity-3", a large launch vehicle with a recoverable rocket. Facing future large-scale and normalized rocket launch needs, "Gravity-1" also supports sea launches, and the first flight of "hand in hand" with Heilan Home will be carried out at sea in the second half of this year.

The reporter learned that in order to adapt to sea launches, "Gravity-1" has adopted a unique configuration design. It looks "Q cute" in appearance, but in fact it is very particular. It can use the height of a small rocket to achieve the carrying capacity of a medium and large rocket. The rocket adopts a bundled configuration of 4 boosters instead of a serial "single-rod" configuration, which enables the rocket to achieve a lower center of gravity and a larger support span, and the "chassis" is more stable and can better adapt to the sea. Challenges such as ship shaking and high sea conditions during launch reduce the difficulty of service support.

"The rapid progress of China's aerospace industry depends on the efforts of engineers, and it is inseparable from the help of private enterprises. We are deeply encouraged by the support and investment of Heilan Home." Peng Haomin, co-founder of Orient Space, said. Regarding the first flight of "Gravity-1" in Oriental Space and Heilan Home, Zhou Lichen, chairman of Heilan Group, said that Heilan Home is willing to be the "accompany" of Orient Space, and will continue to participate in this milestone event. Firmly support China's aerospace industry and China's commercial aerospace industry.
This might be launch in 4Q this year from Yellow Sea.

长光卫星与东方空间正式签约“高分05”批产卫星发射服务项目
Quote
Changguang Satellite officially signed a contract with Dongfang Space for the "High Score 05" mass-produced satellite launch service project

On April 17, Chang Guang Satellite Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Chang Guang Satellite") and Orient Space held a signing ceremony for the "Jilin-1" high-resolution 05 satellite launch service project in Beijing.

Dongfang Space will use the "Gravity-1" carrier rocket to launch the "Jilin-1" high-resolution 05 satellite, and provide mass-scale rapid network launch services for the new generation of high-resolution remote sensing constellations of Chang Guang Satellite.

At the signing ceremony, Xu Kai, deputy general manager of Changguang Satellite, expressed his expectation that the launch vehicle, satellite, data application and other industries will form a joint force to jointly promote the development of China's commercial spaceflight. At the same time, we highly affirm the efforts made by Dongfang Space in the joint development of the star and rocket, and wish the first flight of "Gravity One" a complete success this year. Yao Song of Dongfang Space said that Changguang Satellite is the pioneer and leader of China's commercial aerospace, and will continue to learn from Changguang Satellite, and the two sides will make progress and develop together. Dongfang Space Bu Xiangwei said that the "Jilin-1" satellite launch mission has posed new challenges to the company, and has also created a large application of large rockets. The company is confident in successfully completing the mission.

The "Jilin-1" constellation is the core project under construction of Changguang Satellite. It has built the world's largest sub-meter commercial remote sensing satellite constellation, occupies a dominant position in remote sensing information services, and has gradually become an important source of space remote sensing information in the world. "Jilin No. 1" high-scoring 05-batch production star is the fourth-generation technology satellite of Chang Guang Satellite. It adopts a new generation of high-integration electronic control system, advanced technologies such as ultra-high-speed data transmission and electric propulsion, and adopts mass production and mass launch. , batch networking and the business model of rapidly providing remote sensing information services. It will provide higher-quality remote sensing information and product services in various fields such as homeland security, geographic surveying and mapping, land planning, agricultural and forestry production, ecological environmental protection, and smart cities, and provide customers with more abundant remote sensing data products.

"Gravity-1" is the first medium-sized solid launch vehicle for my country's commercial spaceflight. The LEO carrying capacity reaches 6.5 tons, which triples the existing domestic solid capacity and meets the needs of low-orbit constellations and rapid launch services for medium and large satellites. The "Jilin-1" high-scoring 05-batch satellite launch mission is the first time that the "Gravity-1" rocket has been fully customized to support the construction of large-scale constellations. Through the joint design of the two parties for nearly half a year, the advantages of the large capacity and large space of the "Gravity-1" rocket will be "full and fully utilized", which will help the construction of the "Jilin-1" constellation to greatly improve efficiency and reduce launch costs.
The them of paylods might be Jilin-1 Gaofen 05s.

Besides of the obvious KSP jokes, should we assume that Yinli-1 is a reincarnation of the infamous Conestoga-1620 rocket?  ;D

Perhaps the answer is not that complicated. They bought the largest solid rocket booster they could buy, and then chose to maximize its carrying capacity in a simple way.
