Kinetic 1A launch vehicle is a four-stage bundled vehicle based on solid-propellent Common Booster Cores (CBC). The vehicle is configured with three solid-propellent stages and a non-cryogenic bipropellant liquid upper stage. Three parallel universal solid-propellent boosters provide a stronger lift-off thrust. Modular design and combinations ensure the flexibility of the design while significantly improving the launch capability and cost-effectiveness.Kinetic 1A provides excellent space in its fairing capsulation for efficient constellation construction and cargo transport missions.

Kinetica 2 launch vehicle is a small, low-cost intelligent liquid-propellent launch vehicle in a two-stage-to-orbit configuration. The first and second stages adopt CAS Space’s 80-tonne (Xuanyuan 2) and 15-tonne (Xuanyuan 1) low-cost open-cycle LOX/kerosene rocket engines, respectively. Through highly integrated electrical system hardware, integrated spacecraft information management system, autonomous fault identification and remediation, Kinetica 2 achives intelligent launch and flight managment. It is an upcoming solution ideal for rapid satellite replacement for LEO constellation or emergency launches.
Product parameters:
Height : 37m
Lift-off Mass : 204 t
Payload Capacity : 2.2 t (500km/SSO)
Diameter : 3.35 m
Fairing Diameter : 3.35 m
Kinetica 3 series will be configured with universal liquid-propellent core stages. . The first and second stages will both adopt 80-tonne low-cost open-cycle LOX/kerosene engines, and the universal core stage is equipped with a foldable grid rudder and deployable landing buffer mechanism for recovery or reusability. An optional third stage will utilize 15-tonne low-cost open-cycle LOX/kerosene engine.

Kinetica 3 will be in three-stage tandem configuration primarily purposed for launching LEO constellations.
Product parameters:
Height : 53 m
Lift-off Mass : 476 t
Payload Capacity : 7.8 t (500 km/SSO)
Reusable : 6.1 t (500 km/SSO)
Diameter : 3.8 m
Fairing Diameter : 4.2 m
Kinetica 3 heavy-lift version will be in a two-and-a-half-stage configuration that can meet the demand for large-scale LEO though parallel configuration of Common Boosters Core. In addition, for higher orbit such as geosynchronous orbit and lunar transfer orbit, the launch vehicle can be optionally equipped with a high-performance upper stage to further improve mission capabilities.
Product parameters:
Height : 50m
Lift-off Mass : 1269 t
Payload Capacity : 13.8 t (500 km/SSO)
Reusable : 10.5 t (500 km/SSO)
Boosters Diameter : 3.8 m (CBC)
Fairing Diameter : 4.2 m
Near Space Science
Experiment Platform
The Near-space Experimental Reusable Platform (NEXT-REP) is a reusable sub-orbital experimental platform providing a long microgravity duration for micro-g research such as complex fluid rheological behavior, atmospheric isotope measurements, interfacial phenomena and space micro-nano fabrication and more.
Product parameters:
Height : 10m
Lift-off Mass : 10.5t
Apogee above sea-level : 120-300km
Time in space (> 100 km above sea-level) : 150-450s
Payload Capacity : 0.1 - 0.8 t
Reusability : > 5 times
Space Tourism Vehicle
The space tourism vehicle combines a single-stage booster stage and a tourist capsule with a diameter of 3.35m. It isequipped with five 15 tonne-force LOX/kerosene engines. The tourist capsule is designed to carry 7 passengers with 4 panoramic portholes.

A launch/landing site is under planning with a theme-park, an experience center and educational facilities where space travelers will receive short-term training before departing Earth, During the 10-minute travel off-Earth, the passengers will experience 3 minutes of free fall above the Kármán line. Afterwards, the tourist capsule comfortably returns to the landing site using parachutes.

The space tourism projects will allow a launch per every 5 days by rotation of 10 vehicles maintained at the theme park.
Product parameters:
Height : 15 m
Lift-off Mass : 70 t
Apogee above sea-level : 100-120 km
Time in space (> 100 km above sea-level) 300 -550 s

Payload Capacity : 1.5 t - 2 t
Reusability : > 30 times
