Sep 18, 2020

The Long March 11 launch vehicle developed by the First Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, adopted the "one arrow and nine stars" method in the Yellow Sea, successfully sending the Jilin No. 1 high-resolution group 03 satellites into a sun-synchronous orbit of 535 kilometers.

"The construction of the sea sky road will provide China aerospace with more launch areas, higher high launch efficiency, stronger safety and flexibility." Li Zongli, director of the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center, said that the maritime launch is the use of China's sufficient large ships. , Offshore platforms, port resources and mature technologies of solid rockets, and effective attempts to construct maritime launch systems are an important supplement to China’s entry into space after land launch sites. It has achieved flexible selection of launch points and landing areas, and has significantly improved the carrying capacity. Ability to effectively solve the problem of low-inclination launch capabilities is extremely important for building efficient, flexible and economic launch capabilities and promoting the large-scale development of small satellites.
