China plans to launch Kuaizhou-1 solid-fuelled carrier rocket in December, a breakthrough in its commercial rocket launches.

The news was announced at the 11th China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province, by Lyu Xiaoge, a spokesperson for China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp.

Kuaizhou (speedy vessel) is a low-cost solid-fuelled carrier rocket with high reliability and short preparation period. It was designed to launch low-orbit satellites weighing under 300 kg.

The rocket is launched via a mobile launch vehicle and will primarily launch satellites to monitor natural disasters and provide disaster-relief information.
