There are two launchers for the Lunar program. One for an orbiter and one for a rover.

S. Korea test-fires ballistic missile capable of striking North

http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/national/2014/04/04/56/0301000000AEN20140404001251315F.html

Looks like the upper stage of the venerable Nike-Hercules surface to air missile mated to a new monolithic solid booster motor. Should have the same performance in surface to surface ballistic role. About 500 km range with the original warhead mass of about 1000 kg with gains in range with a lighter warhead. Really doubt they have terminal guidance with this chimera.

booster stage is derivative of one of the Nike Sounding rockets and upper is Nike Derivative. Several variants of Nike family and its sounding rockets were deployed in S. Korea, Japan and other countries in the region. I'm aware of at least two sessions of technology transfer with S. Korea. more may have occurred. known transfers occurred between 1970s and 2000s

I believe the correct name is Test Launch Vehicle (TLV).
The Ground TLV was recently fired. The one in October is the Proto Flight Qualification TLV.
Translated roughly by my cousin who is a translator of the Korean languages.

S. Korea delays test launch of space rocket engine
2018/10/17 18:08

SEOUL, Oct. 17 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will delay the first test flight of its locally developed booster engine due to mechanical problems, the government said Wednesday.

The 75-ton thrust, single-stage rocket developed by the Korea Aerospace Research Institute Province (KARI), was originally set to be launched on Oct. 25 from the Naro Space Center in Goheung, South Jeolla Province, the Ministry of Science and ICT said.

The ministry said it convened a meeting of experts earlier Wednesday to delay the launch as abnormal readings were detected in the rocket propellant pressurization system.

"It may be inevitable to delay the launch by one or two months to examine in detail the cause of the drop in pressure and come up with a fix," said a ministry official who asked not to be named.

The rocket was set to fly for about 10 minutes, during which the performance of the new engine, flight controls and other parts were to be monitored, the ministry said.

If successful, four of the indigenous thrust engines will be used on the first stage and one on the second stage of the three-stage Korea Space Launch Vehicle-2 (KSLV-2), KARI said. The whole rocket is scheduled to blast off in 2021.

The KSLV-2 rocket is to be South Korea's first space vehicle wholly designed and built in the country. It will be used to place unmanned satellites into Earth orbit and for other commercial applications.

South Korea’s space agency sets sight on missions that ‘won’t pay off until 2050’
https://spacenews.com/south-koreas-space-agency-sets-sight-on-missions-that-wont-pay-off-until-2050/

This was part of a broad reform plan unveiled by Lee Sang-ryool, president of the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI), during his May 6 online news conference, the first event of this kind since he took office March 23 for a three-year term.

“I will pursue change,” Lee said. “At least I will get it started to bring a paradigm shift from the conventional way of doing work.” The veteran aerospace scientist who has spent 35 years at KARI said in the NewSpace age, the agency’s role should be redefined as “exploring projects that the private sector can’t afford to, developing core technologies with far-reaching impact or truly futuristic technologies that can be realized 30 years later” — and everything else should be left in the hands of private players.

...

Meanwhile, the nation’s first fully homegrown space rocket, KSLV-2, is on track for its scheduled demonstration launch from the Naro Space Center in Goheung in October, according to Lee. The 200-ton three-stage rocket is currently being assembled without a glitch in the process, he said.

“Once the assembly of the flight model’s first, second and third stages are completed, we will assemble the entire model and transport it to the launch pad,” Lee said. “The launch pad is also nearly complete and the project is currently going ahead smoothly.”

If the demonstration launch is successful, the rocket will make a second launch with a real satellite on board in May 2022 from the same launch site.

Boasting four 75-ton liquid engines in its first-stage booster, the three-stage KSLV-2 is meant to carry a 1.5-ton satellite into low Earth orbit. The second stage has a single 75-ton engine and the third stage has a seven-ton engine.

South Korea's CAS500-4 satellite to be launched by SpaceX.

SpaceX to launch Korea’s midsize satellite in 2023

Quote from: The Korea Herald
SpaceX will send South Korea’s next-generation midsize satellite into orbit in 2023, Korea Aerospace Industries said Sunday.

KAI, the nation’s sole aircraft manufacturer, which developed KF-21 fighters, plans to launch four midsize satellites by 2025 -- No. 2 in 2022, No. 3 and No. 4 in 2023 and No. 5 in 2025. SpaceX rocket will carry the No. 4 into orbit, which will monitor Korean agriculture.

KAI selected SpaceX in an open bidding. Though the launch will take place in the US, many details remain unclear at the moment, including the size of the deal and the type of SpaceX rocket.

The launch of midsize satellite No. 1 in March was conducted by the state-run Korea Aerospace Research Institute. Starting from the launch of satellite No. 2, which will be the first one in Korea led by the private sector, KAI will be responsible for the development of the four satellites’ system design, body development, manufacture, assembly, test and actual launch.

CAS500-2 is also being prepared. Like CAS500-1, its mission is total management of the national land. The launch of this satellite with a lifespan of 4 years is scheduled for early next year. Then, in the second stage of the CAS500 development project, CAS500-3 for space science and technology verification (the Ministry of Science and ICT), CAS500-4 for wide-area agricultural and forestry observation (the Ministry of Science and ICT, the Rural Development Administration, and the Korea Forest Service), and CAS500-5 for the observation of water resources (the Ministry of Science and ICT and the Ministry of Environment) will be launched, one by one.

S. Korea to launch homegrown solid-fuel space rocket by 2024

Quote
SEOUL, Sept. 16 (Yonhap) -- South Korea plans to develop and launch an indigenous solid-propellant space rocket by 2024, officials said Thursday, following the successful combustion test of its engine in July.

According to the defense ministry, the state-run Agency for Defense Development successfully conducted the combustion test of a solid-propellant engine for space rockets at its test site in the western city of Taean on July 29.

The new engine is designed to put small satellites into a low Earth orbit, which are expected to improve the military's surveillance capabilities.

<snip>

South Korea plans to launch a homegrown solid-fuel space rocket carrying a small 500 kilogram satellite from the Naro Space Center in Goheung, 470 kilometers south of Seoul, in around 2024, it said.

SEOUL, Oct. 21 (Yonhap) -- South Korea failed to put a dummy satellite into orbit with its first homegrown space rocket Thursday, dealing a setback to the country's decade-long project to join the elite global space club.

The KSLV-II rocket, also known as Nuri, flew to a target altitude of 700 kilometers but failed to place the 1.5-ton dummy satellite into orbit, President Moon Jae-in said in a press briefing at the Naro Space Center in the country's southern coastal village of Goheung.

"The test-launch of Nuri-ho was completed. I am proud of it," Moon said. "Regrettably, we did not perfectly reach the goal, but we made a very creditable achievement in the first launch."

The failure underscores the challenges of sending a satellite into orbit, a space launch vehicle technology that South Korea has been seeking to acquire for more than a decade for its space program.

So far, only six countries -- Russia, the United States, France, China, Japan and India -- have developed a space launch vehicle that can carry a more than 1-ton satellite.

Moon said South Korea plans to conduct another launch of the Nuri space rocket next year.

SEOUL, October 22. / TASS /. The Republic of Korea will carry out at least five more launches of its own Nuri-designed carrier rocket (KSLV-II). This was announced on Friday by the Ministry of Science and Information and Communication Technology and the Korea Aerospace Research Institute.

According to them, the next launch should take place on May 19, 2022. Its goal will be to launch a 1.3 tonne mock payload and satellite to test the performance of a 200 kg rocket into low orbit 600 to 800 km above Earth.

This will be followed by launches next December, in 2024, 2026 and 2027. From the third launch, it is planned to launch miniature satellites of the next generation into orbit as part of participation in global space exploration projects.

[누리호 발사] 내년 5·10월 추가 발사…2026년 위성시대 본격 돌입
[Launching Nuri] Additional launches in May/October next year… The satellite era begins in earnest in 2026 [dated Oct. 25]

Google translate (edited for grammar and clarity):

Quote
The second launch of the Korean projectile is scheduled for May 19, 2022
October 2022, launch of preliminary feasibility projects in 2024, 2026, and 2027

[Sejong=Newspim] Reporter Lee Kyung-tae = The Nuri, scheduled for launch in May of next year, seems to have been additionally planned for launch around October of the same year. In addition, from 2026, it is expected to enter the era of K-satellite in earnest, by simultaneously loading and launching five satellites on the Nuri.

According to the Ministry of Science and ICT and the Korea Aerospace Research Institute on the 25th, the first launch was completed on the 21st through the Korean launch vehicle (Nuri-ho) project, and the second launch will be held on May 19th next year.

It was confirmed that the second launch date was tentatively listed as May 19, next year, in the launch approval plan submitted to the government by the Korean Air Association for the launch of the Nuri on the 21st. In addition, next year, after May, it will launch an additional Nuri in the second half of the year.

<snip>

If successful in putting satellites into the target orbit through the second Nuri, Korea will have the technology to stably transport satellites of 1 ton or more into orbit.

Following then, Nuri will be launched four more times. This is because the Nuri-ho repeated launch project passed a preliminary feasibility study this year, and a budget of 600 billion won can be invested. The first launch of the repeat launch project is expected as early as October next year.

An official from the Ministry of Science and Technology said, "We plan to launch the Nuri as part of the repeated launch project in the second half of next year. Like the launch on the 21st, we are aiming for launch in the fall, October or November," he said.

In the first repeated launch, the next-generation small satellite No. 2 will be carried on the Nuri. A second launch is expected in 2024. At this time, the next-generation verification satellite No. 3 and the microsatellite No. 1 will be loaded together.

From 2026 (3rd repeated launch), verification satellites will not be mounted. Only real-world deployment satellites that have been verified will be loaded. From this point on, experts in the aerospace industry evaluate that we will enter the era of K-satellite in earnest.

For the third repeated launch, five satellites, including microsatellites 2 to 6, are launched together. In the fourth round, the last of the repeated launches, five satellites, including microsatellites 7 to 11, are carried together.

For clarification, Oct. 2022 is the first "repeated launch", and 2027 is the fourth and last "repeated launch".

Edit: 차세대 소형위성 ("next-generation small satellite") is the same name used for NEXTSat-1, which was launched in 2018 on the SSO-A rideshare flight, so the Oct. 2022 launch will carry NEXTSat-2 and the 2024 launch will carry NEXTSat-3.

"마지막 문제 해결"… 누리호, 6월 15일 다시 우주로 ("Last Problem Solved"... Nuri, back to space on June 15th) [dated Feb. 25]

Google translate (edited for grammar and clarity):

Quote
Nuri, which failed to reach orbit in the final stage in October last year, will make its second launch on June 15 after desperate efforts.

The Ministry of Science and ICT announced on the 25th that it had deliberated and confirmed the schedule for the second launch of the Nuri on June 15. The preliminary launch date range, taking into account the weather conditions, etc., is from the 16th to the 23rd. An official from the Ministry of Science and ICT explained, "The launch management committee will decide on the final launch date in consideration of various factors such as the rainy season."

The second launch of the Nuri is a 'test flight' like the first launch. A satellite model, a performance verification satellite, and CubeSat (microsatellite) developed by four universities will be loaded together. Among them, the performance verification satellite, 0.9m in size and 180kg in weight, is a small satellite that verifies in advance whether the actual satellite can be put into orbit stably during the third launch, which is called 'the main game'. If successful, it will be possible to conduct various space environment experiments for about two years. The CubeSat will also be in charge of various scientific missions, such as fine dust pollution and red tide monitoring.

The third Nuri launch has been delayed to early next year:

Quote
The third launch, originally scheduled for the end of this year, is expected to be around January or February next year due to the delay of the second launch. The third launch of the Nuri will carry the next-generation small satellite No. 2. If successful, we will become the world's 7th independent rocket development country that can launch satellites into space with 100% of our technology.

And two cameras that make up the Lunar Terrain Imager will capture stereoscopic images of lunar features and scout for landing sites for a future South Korean lander.

KPLO comes on the heels of the first successful launch of South Korea’s own rocket, the three-stage KSLV-II, or Nuri, on 21 June. Also developed by KARI, Nuri put a dummy satellite and four smaller CubeSats into orbit. “We now have the capability of launching our own satellites using our own launch vehicle,” says Eunhyeuk Kim says. KARI is already planning a more powerful rocket that could carry a lander to the Moon by the early 2030s. And South Korea even has hopes for missions to Mars and near-Earth asteroids in the mid-2030s. But Eunhyeuk Kim doesn’t foresee a sudden burst of scientific missions using Nuri. Unfortunately, “It’s still more expensive than the Falcon 9,” the vehicle developed by SpaceX, he says.

KASI has its own ambitions. The institute is studying the possibility of putting its growing polarimetry expertise to work on an asteroid mission. And the NASA Langley Research Center turned to the South Korean team to jointly develop PolCube, an Earth-observing CubeSat with optics based on the PolCam design. Planned for launch in 2024, PolCube will analyze fine dust particles hovering over cities.

Cross-post:

South Korea seeks $32.9 million to launch satellites grounded by Russia sanctions [dated Sept. 30]

Quote from: SpaceNews
South Korea’s science ministry plans to set aside 47.2 billion won ($32.9 million) in next year’s budget to launch two satellites that have been left grounded because of Western sanctions on Russia over the war in Ukraine. Once the requested budget is endorsed by congress, the ministry will nix the existing launch contracts with Russia and make a “package deal” with a launch company in the United States or Europe for the two satellites: CAS500-2 remote sensing satellite and KOMPSAT-6 multipurpose satellite.

<snip>

While the ministry didn’t specify launch companies it wants to talk with, reports indicate that the ministry would choose one between SpaceX and Arianespace.

<snip>

The ministry plans to nix the contracts for CAS500-2 and KOMPSAT-6 regardless of the possibility of requesting any reimbursement, while keeping the contract for SNIPE in place, hoping it would enable another Korean satellite to launch on a Russian rocket in the future.

Seems like it's been delayed to the first half of 2023:

Nuri-ho technology transfer priority negotiation company is Hanwha Aerospace [dated Oct. 7]

Google translate:

Quote
Within the next 30 days, Hanwha Aerospace will proceed with negotiations with Korea Aerospace Industries on details of work and technology transfer items, and will be finalized as a system comprehensive company through a contract in November. After that, the Ministry of Science and ICT announced that it will participate in pre-preparation and launch operation for the third launch of Nuri, scheduled for the first half of next year.

I'm not sure if this belongs here since it's about a suborbital launch but INNOSPACE's HANBIT-TLV suborbital vehicle has been shipped to Alcantara, where it is scheduled to take off in December:

The third Nuri launch, carrying NEXTSat-2 and SNIPE, has been scheduled for early May:

3rd launch of space rocket Nuri slated for May: space institute [dated Jan. 10]

Quote from: Yonhap News Agency
The third launch of Nuri, the country's first homegrown space rocket, will be held in early May, following last year's successful second test-firing, the state space institute said Tuesday.

"A launch management team will be formed in late March, and Nuri will be fired in early May as planned," Choi Hwan-seok, who is in charge of the Nuri project at the Korea Aerospace Research Institute, said in a press conference. "We think we are ready to accomplish the mission if the government announces the third launch."

<snip>

He said the rocket will be loaded with the country's second next-generation small satellite and four satellites developed by the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute, codenamed SNIPE, for the third flight.

The SNIPE satellites were originally scheduled to be launched by a Russian rocket last year, but the plan was scrapped due to the ongoing Russian-Ukraine war.

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 5, 2022-- Momentus Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTS) ("Momentus" or the "Company"), a U.S. commercial space company that offers transportation and other in-space infrastructure services, has signed a contract with CONTEC Co. of the Republic of Korea to provide space transportation services for the JINJUSat-1 CubeSat.

Innospace, a South Korean startup specializing in developing hybrid space rockets, said it has launched the Hanbit-TLV -- an 8.4-ton single-stage thrust hybrid rocket standing at 16.3 meters tall -- from the Alcantara Space Center in Brazil at 2:52 p.m. on Sunday local time.

“We will announce the results of the engine’s flight performance and whether the payload’s mission ends up in a success after a comprehensive analysis of the flight data,” said Innospace in a text to reporters.

The company gave no exact timeline on when the final results will be released. The suborbital launch vehicle was loaded with the Brazilian military’s inertial navigation system -- called SISNAV -- which weighs 20 kilograms.

A video that was uploaded to the YouTube account of a user named John Cutrim on Sunday, showed the blastoff of the Hanbit-TLV from the Brazilian Air Force’s launchpad. The description of the video read, “The Alcantara launch center today launched a vehicle from the South Korean company Innospace. The South Korean Hanbit-TLV rocket was successfully launched.”

The Korean startup had initially aimed for a launch on March 8, but it did not happen due to a problem with a frozen battery just 10 seconds before launch. The company then fixed the issue and waited until good weather on Sunday for the launch.

“Developing a space launch vehicle is a process of constantly overcoming variables. The valuable experience and know-how earned during the test launch will become our core technology and a stepping stone for us to become a professional space company with independent technology and launch management capabilities,” said Kim Soo-jong, CEO of Innospace.

Sunday’s liftoff came about three months after the Korean startup's project had to be put on hold at the same site due to a weather issue, problems with a cooling valve and connection errors between systems.

Innospace’s launch was the first rocket blastoff by Korea’s private sector. According to the company, the Hanbit-TLV was also the world’s first launch of a hybrid rocket.

The launch is a test project to assess the performance of the hybrid rocket engine, which is planned to be used as the first stage engine of the Hanbit-Nano rocket later. Innospace is developing the Hanbit-Nano, which is expected to have a 50-kilogram payload, to enter the market for launching commercial small satellites in 2024.

According to Innospace, its hybrid rocket technology of using solid fuel and liquid oxidizer has major advantages in costing less and needing less time to build an engine while guaranteeing safety, as the technology prevents the rocket engine from exploding in urgent cases.

The company plans to develop two additional launch vehicles capable of having a 150-kilogram and 500-kilogram payload, respectively.

Innospace was established by the current CEO in 2017. Since then, the startup has raised 55.2 billion won ($42 million) in investment funding. The rocket developer plans to go public on Korea’s secondary tech-heavy Kosdaq in 2024 through the technology special listing track.

KARI Press Kit (in Korean).
Appears to be heading to a 550 km SSO; nominal T-0 seems to be 09:24:03 UTC.

SEOUL, Nov. 3 (Yonhap) -- Defense Minister Shin Won-sik said Friday that North Korea may have delayed its plan to make a third attempt to launch a spy satellite to fix technological glitches in the third-stage system with Russian assistance.
North Korea made two botched attempts to put a reconnaissance satellite into orbit in May and August and vowed to try again in October, but it failed to meet its self-imposed deadline.
 
The first attempt failed due to problems in the booster, while Pyongyang's state media blamed the second flight's failure on a flawed third-stage emergency blasting system.

Shin weighed the possibility of Pyongyang's making a third attempt in late November to reflect technological guidance from Russia following the rare summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin in September.
 "North Korea could try again on its own even if it fails, but the launch may have been delayed as Russia provided specific technical guidance (for the satellite). We place more emphasis on the latter," Shin said during his first meeting with reporters since taking office last month.

"There is a possibility of (North Korea's satellite launch) in around late November. We will continue to monitor the situation," he added.

In response to Pyongyang's efforts to put its first spy satellite into space, Shin vowed to boost the South Korean military's surveillance capability to fend off North Korea's advancing missile and nuclear threat.

He disclosed the South Korean military's plan to launch its first indigenous reconnaissance satellite on Falcon 9, U.S. aerospace company SpaceX's two-stage rocket, from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California on Nov. 30, as well as a plan to launch a homegrown solid propellant rocket later this year.

South Korea has condemned Pyongyang's satellite launch as a provocation and violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions banning its use of ballistic missile technology.

(LEAD) S. Korea successfully conducts third test flight of solid-fuel space rocket

(ATTN: UPDATES with details in first 5 paras; CHANGES headline)
By Kim Eun-jung

SEOUL, Dec. 4 (Yonhap) -- South Korea successfully conducted a third test flight of a solid-fuel space rocket Monday, the defense ministry said, as part of efforts to build its independent space-based surveillance system against North Korea.

The space launch vehicle was launched from a barge floating in waters about 4 kilometers south of Jeju Island at 2 p.m. and placed a small Earth observation satellite into orbit at an altitude of about 650 km, the ministry said.

The 100-kilogram synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite is made by Hanwha Systems.

....

Apparently the vehicle has its 2nd stage left out (this stage was fired in the March and December 2022 test flights) so it's not in the full configuration, per the South Korean Ministry of Defense press release.

Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) announced on Dec. 1 that it has signed a contract with SpaceX for the replacement launch of the Next Generation Medium Satellite-2.

Through this launch contract, the Next Generation Medium Satellite 2 will be launched into space orbit aboard SpaceX's Falcon 9 launch vehicle and utilized for national public missions such as land resource management and disaster response.

This is KAI's second contract with SpaceX, following a July 2021 contract to launch the next Generation Medium Satellite 4. Next Generation Medium Satellites 2 and 4 are scheduled to launch together aboard SpaceX in 2025.

I believe these are = CAS500-2 and CAS500-4. 500-2 was original scheduled to launch on Soyuz/Fregat from Baikonur last year.

Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) will launch its satellite into space aboard SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket in 2025.
KAI signed a launch service contract for its Compact Advanced Satellite 500-2 (CAS500-2) with SpaceX, the Korean aircraft and satellite developer said Friday.
The latest agreement follows a previous one for CAS500-4, which was signed in July 2021. Both CAS500-2 and CAS500-4 will be aboard SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket in 2025.
The CAS500 project aims to build a platform for a 500-kilogram-class standard satellite and is part of the government-led program to foster the private space sector through the satellite technology transfer from the state-run Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) to KAI.
In 2015, KARI and KAI began to develop the CAS500-1, which was launched in March 2021 at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and KAI took the helm from the second set of the CAS500 series. Three more CAS500 satellites are to come until 2025.   
“With the global launch vehicle market in turmoil, KAI has successfully cleared the way for a launch in collaboration with SpaceX,” Kim Ji-hong, who is leading R&D at KAI, said in a release.
“We will lead the new space sector by smoothly carrying out the whole process of the CAS500 project, from the development of the satellite to the final launch.”
KAI established Korea’s first private space center equipped with a satellite manufacturing facility in Sacheon, South Gyeongsang.
The company signed a 67 billion won ($51.3 million) agreement with Korea’s Agency for Defense Development in May to develop a nanosatellite system, extending its satellite portfolio, which has been mostly focused on mid to large-sized models such as a geostationary multi-purpose satellite system.

The ROK Launcher's public name is Goche Yeollyo Uju Balsache (고체연료 우주발사체) ("Solid Fuel Space Launcher"). The dual purpose missile family's internal name remains classified from the public realm. It is know that South Korea and other ASIAPAC countries have been jointly developing dual purpose FOBS capable ICBM's as part of a Western allied independent multirange ballistic missile and tactical missile family programme capable of carrying any kind of reentry vehicle type.

The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) said two synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites are scheduled to be launched on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida in April and November, respectively.

Beginning with an electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) satellite in December, South Korea plans to place four more SAR satellites into orbit by 2025 to enhance space-based intelligence capabilities amid North Korea's growing missile and nuclear threats.
