More of China’s Long March rockets will be put into commercial use to meet the country’s increasing space launch demand.

The rockets will be used to shoot up small satellites to Sun-synchronous, Earth-synchronous, near-Earth orbits and other distances in space. According to China Aerospace Science and Technology Cooperation (CASC), the service will become available in 2018.

China’s colleges and universities, scientific research institutions as well as private enterprises are sending more small satellites to space, giving rise to the demand for carrier rockets.

CASC offers fast, stable and reliable shooting services for customers via constellation networks, exclusive, carrier and regular orbit launches.
