深蓝航天  Deep Blue Limited – Deep Blue Aerospace One of sixty Chinese private space Carrier Rocket Companies in China-People’s Republic of China…  As many of sixty plus Private Rocket Deep Blue Aerospace Co., Ltd. was established in 2017. The company is mainly a high-tech aerospace enterprise that focuses on the direction of liquid recovery and reusable launch vehicles and provides users with commercial launch services. Deep Blue Aerospace Co., Ltd. is headquartered in Nantong City, Jiangsu Province. At the same time, the company has rocket general and liquid engine R&D centers in Yizhuang, Beijing and Xi’an, Shaanxi, respectively, and a rocket power system test base in Tongchuan, Shaanxi…..

Recently this month of June July 2023 , the separation test of the fairing of the “Xingyun-1” liquid recyclable and reusable launch vehicle of Shenlan Aerospace was a complete success. This is the first test in China to use a non-pyrotechnic connection unlocking mechanism to separate the fairing. In order to fully verify the separation state of the fairing under different deviations, Deep Blue Aerospace has conducted many experiments on this round, all of which use the self-developed non-pyrotechnic connection unlocking mechanism. The separation timing of the test is correct, which is basically consistent with the simulation results. No damage occurred in

This round of separation tests was completed in the Deep Blue Aerospace Nantong rocket assembly base, and the fairing was completely recovered after multiple tests. ​The main technical indicators of this round of fairing separation test have been completed:

This round of tests used the same set of connection and unlocking mechanisms to complete multiple separation tests within three days, verifying the reusability and rapid response capabilities of the self-developed non-pyrotechnic connection and unlocking mechanism, which is the first time in domestic fairing separation tests. ​

This round of fairing separation test is one of the phase tests before the first flight of the “Xingyun-1” liquid reusable launch vehicle. The success of this round of tests will pave the way for the first flight of the “Xingyun-1” rocket in 2024 established a solid foundation.

Why did the rocket separate the fairing? ​ ​The launch vehicle will encounter harsh environments during flight. The fairing protects the satellite load from aerodynamic force and aerodynamic heat, and also reduces the aerodynamic resistance of the launch vehicle during flight. After leaving the atmosphere, the launch vehicle is no longer affected by aerodynamics, and throwing away the fairing helps to increase the rocket’s carrying capacity.
