星河动力空间科技有限公司 Galactic Energy-  Galaxy Power (Beijing) Space Technology Co., Ltd. Located in Block D, Aviation Technology Plaza, E-Town, and Beijing – Beijing – China – People’s Republic of China ….Galaxy Aerospace is the first private aerospace company in China to achieve successful continuous launches, the first to send commercial networked satellites into a 500km sun-synchronous orbit, and the first to master the ability to launch multiple satellites with one carrier rocket.

Chinese private commercial rocket company’s first sea launch! 谷神星一号海远一 carrier rocket plans to implement a sea launch at the Eastern Aerospace Port at around 17:30 on September 5th 2023!

The Galaxy Power Ceres-1 rocket is scheduled to carry the 21st to 24th satellites  of the Apokolips constellation (including the 21st to 24th satellite with one Carrier rocket) in Haiyang, Shandong (Yantai) at around 17:30 on September 5 (evening). Four satellites, including the 21st satellite named “Hefei Gaoxin No. 1” and the 22nd satellite named “China Minquan Shuangyong”, will carry out sea launch missions.

It is expected that at about 17:40 on September 5, 2023, the “Ceres-1” sea-launched Yao 1 carrier rocket carrying “Hefei High-tech-1” and other satellites will be launched from the offshore Shandong Oriental Space Port to execute the “Ceres-1” mission. No. 1 rocket’s first sea launch.

launch of Ceres-1 (Haiyaoyi) launched 16 more technological innovations based on the previous 8 rockets successfully launched from land, and achieved 4 Six major breakthroughs: “World’s first” and two “domestic firsts”:
🔷The first domestic private rocket launch at sea
🔷The first domestic commercial aerospace launch into an 800km inclined orbit
🔷The world’s first launch from a land-sea universal mobile platform without
support 🔷The world’s first solid rocket unguided at sea Thermal launch
🔷The world’s first rocket adopts a maritime vertical self-alignment and online misalignment angle correction high-precision navigation solution
🔷The world’s first solid rocket adopts a non-pyrotechnic locking release mechanism.

This time Ceres 1 (Haiyao 1) entered an 800km inclined orbit, which is the farthest record set by a domestic private rocket. The 21st to 24th stars of the Apokolips constellation successfully carried it into orbit. Apocalypse Constellation 21 to 24 satellites are low-orbit data acquisition satellites developed by Beijing Guodian Hi-Tech Co., Ltd. and are part of the Apocalypse Constellation. The Apocalypse constellation is designed to be networked with 38 satellites, which can provide global data collection services and effectively solve the problem of IoT network access at sea, in the air and in remote areas that are not covered by ground networks. The ground segment of the system includes satellite management center, service operation center, earth station, gateway station, ground network,

 “Hefei High-tech No. 1” is the first special launch satellite in the second phase of construction among the 38 satellites planned by the Apocalypse Constellation. It is also the first satellite launched by Beijing Guodian High-tech Co., Ltd. after the industrial landing in Hefei High-tech Zone.

This mission is codenamed “The Little Mermaid”. “Ceres No. 1” will become China’s first sea-launched private commercial carrier rocket, and it will also become China’s third sea-launched carrier rocket. Prior to this, “Long March 11” and “Jielong 3” had achieved consecutive successes, verifying the feasibility, stability, and reliability of sea launches.

After “Ceres 1”, various types of rockets will be launched from the sea at the Oriental Spaceport. In December 2023, Eastern Space Company’s “Gravity 1” all-solid rocket will make its first flight here; in the first half of 2024, Rocket Company’s “Darwin 2” liquid rocket will also be launched here. In addition, sea-launched rockets such as China Aerospace Corporation’s “Lijian-1” will also be launched at the Oriental Space Port.

Compared with land-based launches, sea-based launches have two major advantages: the launch platform can be maneuvered and deployed and the launch range is wide. Specifically, on the one hand, sea launch can maneuver the launch platform to low latitudes close to the equator, which can maximize the use of the earth’s rotation speed and enhance rocket capacity; on the other hand, sea launch has a wider area Since the wreckage landing area is planned on the sea, it can avoid densely populated areas such as cities, which is convenient and safe.

The sea launch will be an important step for “Ceres-1” and its development company Xinghe Power Aerospace. It will expand the launch site resources for its rapid response and high-density launch delivery, and also provide convenience for various types of launches. At the same time, the sea launch of “Ceres No. 1” will also be an important step for China’s civil and commercial aerospace. The mission was a complete success!
