36 Krypton learned that Rocket (Huzhou) Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd. has completed an angel round of financing of tens of millions of yuan in June 2021, and the old shareholder Hongqiao Capital made additional investment. This round of financing funds will be mainly used for the first flight of the first space biological load device “Tinder One”, the related research and development work of the space microgravity bioreactor “Torch One”, the overall plan optimization and sub-system plan of the Darwin rocket Detailed argumentation, and the launch of rocket production and manufacturing.
“Rocket Group (Huzhou) Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd.” (hereinafter referred to as “Rocket Group”), established in December 2020, has completed the review of the overall rocket plan and has initially completed the recruitment of core R&D personnel. The Rocket Group plans to provide flight-oriented and highly reliable rapid response launch services as a way to integrate industry chain resources to quickly achieve commercial closed loops. It will build a “space biology laboratory” in the near future, and a “space pharmaceutical factory” and a “space medicine factory” in the long run. hospital”.
“Darwin” rocket and “Prometheus” spacecraft
Completed the mechanical environment test of the stand-alone aircraft and plans to fly for the first time in September
The first space biological payload device “Tinder One” is scheduled to carry the Long March series of carrier rockets for its maiden flight in September 2021, and the first liquid carrier rocket “Darwin” is scheduled to fly in early 2023. The design concept of “integration of ship and rocket measurement and launch” is used to double the load capacity, and the launch efficiency of existing rockets is improved through the repeated use of carrier rockets and load platforms, systematic structural optimization and new material applications.
At present, the Rockets have completed the single mechanical environment test of the first space biological load device “Tinder One”. The test simulates the low-frequency transient environment that the biological load device is subjected to through the sinusoidal vibration test, and then uses the random vibration test to test the biological load device to take off and exhaust, the rocket transonic flight and the random acoustic vibration that the biological load device needs to withstand during high-speed flight. The structural design strength, circuit reinforcement reliability, and communication system control stability of the “Tinder No. 1” single-unit biological load device have been improved, marking the successful completion of the model stage verification test, and it can be transferred to the positive model stage.

The formation of a complete and excellent team is an important factor in the development of commercial aerospace enterprises. Rocket Group is positioned in the two industries of commercial aerospace and life sciences, forming a cross-disciplinary team to form differentiated competition with other commercial aerospace companies.
Rocket School is co-founder and chief scientist by Academician Zhuang Fengyuan, a leading Chinese space life sciences scholar. The launch vehicle research and development team all come from the Academy of Aerospace Science. The head of the general department is from the First Academy of Aerospace, with more than 10 rounds of bomb/arrow development, testing and successful flight experience. The head of the structure department comes from the First Academy of Aerospace, with nearly 20 years. The head of the electrical department comes from the Control Institute of the Fourth Academy of Aerospace Science and Industry with more than 10 years of experience in rocket model engineering. The team members have performed dozens of launch missions, won a number of national/defense science and technology awards, and hundreds of related patents. The spacecraft team and payload team are led by academician Zhuang Fengyuan of the International Academy of Astronautics. Members come from universities, life science companies, and aerospace research institutes, including the Fifth Academy of Aerospace, Beihang School of Biological and Medical Engineering, Beijing Institute of Technology, and Sinopharm Group. The team members are in cooperation with Europe and the United States. The life science and load design teams have many years of communication experience.
36 krypton has reported in the past on the “rocket school”, which is different from traditional aerospace, which first manufactures rockets and then considers the development idea of load. Starting from the establishment of the company, Rocket Group started from the needs of the life science industry, and integrated the resources of the upstream and downstream industry chains with the concept of “demand defines loads and loads defines rockets”, and plans to quickly realize commercial closed loops. Rocket faction hopes to unite different groups in various industries to form a new collaborative network for common development, to take traditional aerospace over the upstream and downstream heavy asset industries, dismantle them into different small industries, and reduce the total cost through solutions from various industries.
In addition, Cheng Wei, the founder of Rocket School, said that since last year, Rocket’s team is also exploring projects related to the integration of the energy industry and aerospace. It will launch solar sails into space and use it to reflect sunlight to the ground and western China. Large-scale ground power stations generate a steady stream of energy by them.
