About us
Jiangsu Shenlan Space Co., LTD. (Shenlan Space) focuses on the direction of liquid recovery and reuse carrier rockets. It is a high-tech commercial aerospace enterprise that develops and produces recoverable reusable rockets by itself and provides launch services to the market.
The headquarters of Deep Blue Space is located in Nantong, Jiangsu Province, with a research and development center of integrated rocket and liquid engine in Yizhuang, Beijing. Tongchuan has built a rocket power system test base in Shaanxi province. The company has obtained the national high-tech enterprise certification and weapons equipment quality management system certification.
The main products "Nebulae" series of Deep Blue Space include "Nebula-1" medium and small liquid launch vehicle and "Nebula-1H" medium and large liquid launch vehicle; The supporting "Thunder" series of liquid rocket engines are respectively "Thunder -R1" liquid oxygen kerosene engine and "Thunder -R2" liquid oxygen kerosene engine. Through the vertical recovery and reuse of a sub-stage of "Nebulae" series carrier rockets, Deep Blue Space greatly reduces the cost of rocket launch service and improves the launch service capability.
In July 2021, Deep Blue Space completed China's first vertical takeoff and vertical landing (VTVL) free flight of liquid oxygen and kerosene rocket, known as the "Grasshopper jump" vertical recovery flight test of carrier rocket. On October 13, 2021, Deep Blue Aerospace successfully completed the 100-meter VTVL vertical recovery flight test again. On May 7, 2022, Deep Blue Aerospace successfully completed the kilometer-level VTVL vertical recovery flight test, becoming the second company in the world to complete the vertical recovery of liquid oxygen and kerosene rocket and reuse all low-altitude engineering tests (the first one is SpaceX of the United States). On June 29, 2022, Deep Blue Aerospace's 20-ton liquid oxygen and kerosene engine "Thunder-R1" made a successful test run. On September 29, 2022, Deep Blue Aerospace completed the second start test of China's first reusable liquid oxygen and kerosene engine in commercial space.
In the next step, the company will carry out the final assembly of the sample arrows of the Nebula-1 carrier rocket as planned, and will complete the first orbit-launch and recovery mission of the Nebula-1 carrier rocket by the end of 2024. Commercial space has unlimited prospects and space, as a member of this sunrise industry, Deep Blue Space will adhere to the pragmatic, innovative, rigorous and efficient style, determined to become a promoter of space transportation industry.
