从“长十一”火箭总指挥,到商业航天创业者 中科宇航董事长杨毅强:行业的春天还未到来
Quote
From the commander-in-chief of the "CZ-11" rocket to the commercial aerospace entrepreneur Yang Yiqiang, Chairman of Zhongke Aerospace: The spring of the industry has not yet arrived

The most prominent increase in commercial aerospace is reflected in cost. According to reports, Zhongke Aerospace is participating in the low-cost cargo program for the space station. The first rocket "Lijian 1" will be launched in early 2022. This is the solid carrier rocket with the largest carrying capacity in China. It adopts the overall optimized design of the largest carrier rocket in China and the first large-tonnage rocket body in China. A number of technological innovations such as horizontal modal testing and the largest solid-charged solid engine in the country have greatly reduced launch costs, saving tens of millions of dollars in costs, and comprehensive performance has reached the international leading level.
In Chinese, 《2022年初》 means January, how about "in early 2022" in English?

I remember seeing that the first flight wasn't expected until March on Twitter, I'd have to find that again.

It would surprise me a bit if they start the launch campaign for a brand new rocket before the New Year, there are only 25 days left for that.

I also found that news, though this one is the newest, I am afraid of the content is old....

It is said the next Gushenxing won't be tomorrow, so it might be this one as Lijian-1(ZK-1A) is similar as CZ-11.

There is only one fallout area... Could it be the first ZQ-2?

Possible!
Then there are two time spans, maybe two launching...

The NOTAMed area is aligned with TSLC and this NOTAM looks like it is intended for missile test, not orbital launch

250 km is too short for missile, do you think so?

NOTAMs for destination points are rarely issued.

This might be in May 20, and maybe by CZ-11A or KZ-11:)

历经74小时,3000km,SY-01星踏上新征程!
Quote
After 74 hours and 3000km, SY-01 star embarked on a new journey!

Under the special background of Shanghai's epidemic prevention and control, the launch test team of the Space New Technology Test Satellite of the Microsatellite Innovation Institute must complete a 14-day quarantine before entering the base. In order to ensure the smooth launch of the new space technology test satellite (SY-01), and to ensure that the satellite is transported to the launch site, it is decided to take the measures of separation of human and satellite and three-line guarantee, and the personnel are divided into "satellite receiving" and "satellite delivery". And the three batches of "satellite transportation", the first batch is the advance test team to set off in advance for isolation, and is responsible for coordinating the satellite and the preliminary work of the launch site; the second batch is the security test team, responsible for completing the satellite testing in the park and the installation of windsurfing boards. , filling and equipment packing and packing; the third batch, as a transportation test team, is responsible for the safe transportation of satellites. With the full support of the Innovation Institute and the joint efforts of the model personnel, the space new technology test satellite took 74 hours from 7:00 on May 7 to 9:00 on May 10, and was finally successfully transported from Shanghai to the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. The unloading work is carried out and transferred to the workshop.

During the period of coordinating and communicating with the relevant person in charge of the launch site to determine the work plan of the launch site, the test team successively completed the preparatory work such as cleaning the environment of the satellite workshop and deploying the ground test equipment. Subsequently, the test team has completed the cleaning of the satellite propulsion system pipeline, the whole-system leak detection, the self-inspection of the filling equipment, the power-on debugging of the ground equipment and the network joint debugging work in strict accordance with the reported work plan and under the management requirements of the workshop. On May 18, the last batch of quarantine personnel of the test team arrived at the site, and the model team was assembled. The satellite has completed unpacking, electrical testing and payload installation and testing after the entire satellite has been transported. At present, all work is progressing smoothly. On May 20, under the arrangement of the launch site, the test team completed the technical disclosure and quality review of the satellite. In the follow-up work, the SY-01 satellite test team will continue to work in an orderly manner under the premise of abiding by the site management regulations, complete the technical area test and double thinking work, and ensure the smooth launch of the satellite!

Well, I believe only two images in this posting are related to CAS Space Lijian-1 (ZK-1A) vehicle; others are from the Jiuqyan Zhuque 2 site.

The 3rd and 4th last images in the post I quoted above are of this pad, which we managed to find the location of.

It can be really hard to interpret satellite imagery! Local knowledge & an understanding of an area’s history are crucial pieces of the puzzle.

At the most arduous moment of epidemic prevention and control, the Innovation No. 15 satellite developed by Micronano Institute entered the "sprint stage" before launch. In order to ensure the progress of scientific research and production, Chang Liang took the lead in returning to work as soon as possible. According to the members of the test team According to the risk level of the region, a list of return to work was drawn up, and relevant departments were coordinated to arrange pick-up and drop-off, which ensured the smooth assembly of the expedition test team. After traveling 3,000km by bus and 74 hours of day and night to reach the Jiuquan launch base, Chang Liang and all the test team members completed the 14-day isolation on May 18, and are currently carrying out the work related to the launch site in an orderly manner.
these two payloads might be launched in June.
