We have completed 6 launches this year, and there will be two more by the end of the year. In the future, we hope to increase the frequency of Ceres-1 rockets to 40 launches per year, which is equivalent to rockets every week. At that time, we will be able to provide our satellite customers with better A more valuable launch.
There will be two launches in 2023, Y9, and Y10?

The two stars on the mission badge hint at two satellites on this launch. They could be ELLIPSPACE's Starpool-02A/B which are shipped to Jiuquan on November 09.
Previously, Starpool-01B was launched on CERES-1 Y7.

“玑衡一号卫星”从北京启运顺利运抵酒泉卫星发射中心

"Jiheng-1 Satellite" was successfully shipped from Beijing to Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center

After more than a year of arduous development by Gengyu Muxing (Beijing) Space Technology Co., Ltd., the world's first commercial microwave passive detection low-orbit meteorological small satellite constellation test satellite - Jiheng-1 satellite has successfully passed the factory review recently. On November 14, it set out from Beijing, passed through several provinces and cities, traveled 1,695 kilometers, and arrived safely at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center on November 15. The test team personnel and the satellite successfully reunited, and subsequent launches will be selected according to the launch mission plan.

The transport vehicle fleet consists of three vehicles traveling 50-80 meters apart. The transport vehicles along the way travel at a constant speed according to the transportation requirements. At the same time, they stop in the service area for inspection every 200km or so to check the pre-tightening force of the satellite packaging box and the vehicle body cable. A cross-inspection method is adopted. After the inspection is correct, the vehicle will set off again.

"Jiheng-1 Satellite" is the world's first commercial microwave passive detection low-orbit meteorological satellite independently developed by Gengyu Muxing (Beijing) Space Technology Co., Ltd., and the user is Zhiyi Hangyu (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd. The "Jiheng-1 Satellite" constellation is China's first microwave passive detection meteorological small satellite constellation. It consists of 45 low-orbit meteorological small satellites. When fully completed, it will achieve global meteorological detection time resolution of 10min level and spatial resolution of 10km level. , the meteorological data obtained can not only independently develop the market, but also be a powerful supplement to the national meteorological satellite data.
This Jiheng-1 (玑衡一号)might be launched on December.

The first batch of networking satellites in the elliptical space-time "Star Pool Project" constellation were successfully launched

At 12:10 on December 4, 2023, the second set of A/B satellites of Xingchi-1 was launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center by the Long March 2 C-Y75 carrier rocket. The satellite successfully entered the predetermined orbit, and the satellite and the ground established a The measurement and control connection was stable, the sailboards deployed normally, and the launch mission was a complete success.

Folks, we need a new payload for GSX-1 tonight.

Luanched Tianyan-16 (天雁16星) and Xingchi-1A (星池一号A星) successfully!

Online Galactic Penguin SST

Based on the satellites' names, Xingchi-1A is probably = Starpool-01A and would probably be from ELLISPACE, less than a day after launching on CZ-2C just a few km away.
Tianyan-16, which apparently is = Jiheng 1 for Cultivate Space (see several posts above), has a microwave radiometer meteorology payload and a laser communication link terminal, and is (per the satellite name) probably built by MinoSpace.

祝贺玑衡一号卫星成功入轨,天雁星座再添新成员
Quote
Congratulations on the successful placement of the Jiheng-1 satellite into orbit and the addition of a new member to the Tianyan constellation.

At 7:33 on December 5, 2023, the Jiheng-1 satellite lifted off from the launch channel of the Ceres-1 Yaojiu launch vehicle and successfully entered the predetermined orbit. The mission was a complete success. The Jiheng-1 satellite is the 16th satellite of the Tianyan constellation (Tianyan-16). At present, the Tianyan constellation has completed the launch of 15 satellites; Tianyan-15, Tianyan-17, and Tianyan-18 will be launched in the near future.

The Jiheng-1 satellite weighs about 165 kilograms and operates in a sun-synchronous orbit with an orbital altitude of about 500 kilometers. It is mainly used to achieve high-precision meteorological, oceanic and space environment detection in specific areas and obtain high-precision data on instantaneous meteorological and oceanic environment characteristics. In addition, the satellite also carries an inter-satellite laser payload.

The Jiheng-1 satellite is operated by Zhiyi Aerospace (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd., developed by Gengyu Muxing (Beijing) Space Technology Co., Ltd., and operated and maintained in orbit by Beijing Tianlian Measurement and Control Technology Co., Ltd.
The Tianyan-16 (天雁-16) is also Jiheng-1 (玑衡一号).
