Shian Quxian-1S (Hyperbola-1S) is a small solid fuel rocket designed by the Chinese company i-Space as a demonstrator for their planned Hyperbola-1 rocket.
On 4 April 2018, the 8.4 m long and 4.6 ton single stage Shian Quxian-1S (Hyperbola-1S) test vehicle was launched from Hainan to an altitude of 108 km. On 5 September 2018 a similar Shian Quxian-1Z (Hyperbola-1Z) was launched, which featured grid fins instad of the normal fins.
