Changguang Aerospace contributed to the development of the all-carbon fibre composite carrier rocket Kuaizhou-11

Using Kuaizhou-11 Y4 carrier rocket, China launched Wuhan-1 satellite and ultra-low orbit technology experimental satellite at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, in Inner Mongolia. The satellites entered the planned orbit smoothly and the launch mission was a success. The mission also carried and launched Tianyan-22 and Lingque-3-01, which was the 32nd flight of the Kuaizhou carrier rockets series.

Kuaizhou-11 is a solid-fuel carrier rocket made entirely of carbon fibre composite materials, with a take-off weight of 78 tons and a body diameter of 2.2 metres. It enables vehicle-mounted mobile launch and has the capability to deploy multiple satellites, which can accommodate a variety of commercial launch missions. Notably, the seven main structures and a rocket engine nozzle were developed and produced by Changchun Changguang Aerospace Composite Materials Co., Ltd (Changguang Aersopace).

According to Changguang Aerospace, the Kuaizhou-11 carrier rocket achieved a breakthrough in the development of the Kuaizhou carrier rocket series. It can better meet the needs of large-scale, high-density and rapid satellite launches, and will strongly promote the development of China’s solid carrier rockets and their propulsion technology.
