China Aerospace Science and Industry Group on the “National Defense Science and Technology Industry” revealed that: the group’s future five launch rocket series, “Yu Zhou” and “Qing Zhou” are electric rockets and liquid rocket, respectively. Both will be launched by “Large-scale electromagnetic launch system on the ground”. It is scheduled to be completed by 2020 for electromagnetic emission demonstration system construction and validation of the principle test.

In addition to “Kuai Zhou” series, there are “Kai Tuo” series. At the end of this year, we are ready to launch 200 kilograms of low-orbit satellite. There are also “Yu Zhou” series. By using large-scale electromagnetic launch system to launch electric rocket. “Qiao Zhou” series are used to launch stratospheric airship. Launch service will be ready in 2018. “Qing Zhou” series will be used to launch liquid carrier rockets by using large-scale electromagnetic launching system on the ground.

【我国计划使用电磁弹射发射卫星】中国航天科工集团在《国防科技工业》中透露:该集团未来五大运载火箭系列中,“羽舟”、“轻舟”分别为电火箭和液体火箭,皆由“地面大型电磁弹射系统”发射,计划于2020年完成电磁发射演示系统建设及原理验证试验

刘石泉在大会上作了“军民融合创新驱动协同开创商业航天新业态”的主题发言,详细解读航天科工在商业航天领域的发展布局。他指出,航天科工以创新思路积极布局商业航天,重点实施飞云、快云、行云、虹云、腾云五大商业航天工程,持续构建快舟、开拓、羽舟、巧舟、轻舟五大系列的运载系统,开发天信系列空间信息应用产品,在“空、临、天”多层次着力构建全域信息网络。
运载系统除了“快舟”系列以外,还有“开拓”系列,今年年底准备发射200千克量级低轨道卫星。还有“羽舟”系列,利用地面大型电磁弹射系统发射电推火箭,计划2020年完成电磁发射演示系统建设及原理验证试验。“巧舟”系列,用以发射平流层飞艇,计划2018年提供发射运载服务。“轻舟”系列,利用地面大型电磁弹射系统发射液体运载火箭,计划2020年前,完成电磁发射演示系统建设及原理验证试验。
