LandSpace 蓝箭航天 One of sixty Chinese private space Carrier Rocket Companies in China-People’s Republic of China…   On the occasion of the centenary of the founding of the party, the first phase of the Jiaxing LandSpace Blue Arrow Aerospace Center,   located in VIC International Plaza, No. 13 Ronghua South Road, Yizhuang Economic and Technological Development Zone, Beijing China – People’s Republic of China…. The company located in a gathering place for the aerospace industry chain laid out in Zhejiang, was completed and will soon be put into use. Established mass production capacity for medium and large rockets, and completed the first phase of Jiaxing Blue Arrow Space Center…. Blue Arrow Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd. (Blue Arrow Aerospace) is a leading domestic commercial company for the creation and operation of aerospace transportation systems, established in June 2015, a national high-tech enterprise, Member of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF). Guided by the national strategy and guided by market demand, Blue Arrow Aerospace is committed to developing a series of medium and large launch vehicles with liquid oxygen methane as propellant, providing cost-effective and highly reliable launch services for the global market.

Suzaku-2 Yao-1 carrier rocket flight failure passed the zero-reset review On March 18, 2023, Blue Arrow Aerospace Science and Technology Co., Ltd. organized a zero-reset review meeting for the abnormal shutdown failure of the second-stage aircraft of the Suzaku-2 Yao-1 carrier rocket. After deliberation, the evaluation expert group unanimously believed that the abnormal shutdown fault problem of the second-stage engine of the Suzaku-2 remote-1 launch vehicle was accurately located and the mechanism was clear. The fault recurred in the ground test of the engine.

The Suzaku-2 Yao-1 carrier rocket ignited and took off at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in China at 16:30 on December 14, 2022. The first-stage flight, first- and second-stage separation, second-stage ignition, and fairing separation were all normal. After the second-stage host was shut down The tour plane shut down abnormally, and the launch mission failed. After the failure of the mission, Blue Arrow Aerospace established a zero-return working group to organize failure analysis, locate the cause of the failure, and analyze the failure mode and mechanism. Through the detailed analysis of the flight telemetry data, a comprehensive simulation analysis calculation and a series of test verification and hot test work were planned to find out the cause and mechanism of the failure. The abnormal shutdown fault of the second-level swimming machine is located in the rigidity mismatch between the oxygen delivery pipe of the swimming machine and the low-pressure casing of the oxygen pump, and the low-pressure casing has insufficient strength margin. The game machine shuts down abnormally. In view of the cause and mechanism of the failure, Blue Arrow Aerospace has adopted a number of improvement measures to improve the structural safety factor and reduce the impact of water hammer. The improvement measures have been verified by simulation analysis and calculation and ground test vehicle assessment, and can meet the flight requirements.

We would like to thank the review expert group for their guidance and assistance to Blue Arrow Aerospace during the zeroing process, the customers for their trust and understanding, and all shareholders for their long-term companionship and support. In the follow-up, the company will fully launch the final assembly and general inspection of the Suzaku No. 2 launch vehicle, quickly implement fault improvement measures, continuously enhance the team’s quality awareness, awareness of urgency, and responsibility awareness, and strictly organize the go-around work of Suzaku No. 2. Ensuring the continued success of subsequent launch missions……
