Lijian-1 (Y1) [CAS]

Lijian-1 or Kinetica-1, also known as Zhongke-1 (ZK-1), is a solid-fueled launch vehicle.

Lijian-1 was developed by CAS Space (a.k.a. Beijing Zhongke Aerospace Exploration Technology Co.), a spin-off of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Lijian-1 uses the same rocket motors as the Jielong-3 rocket.

The maiden flight of a Lijian-1 took place in July 2022 from Jiuquan.
