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.

[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.
