    Japan's H3 Launch Vehicle

    Japan is in the process of developing a new rocket - H3 Launch Vehicle. It is a liquid propellant launch vehicle.

    Our aim of the H3 is to have a launch vehicle that launches a payload “quicker” and “easier” with “high reliability” while securing flexibility to answer the voices of customers. We have set a target for launch capability and price while focusing on the flexibility of launch services to cope with worldwide payload launch needs.
    Flexible launch service

    The Upgraded H-IIA Launch Vehicle was designed to launch up to a 4.9-ton payload in orbit (geostationary transfer orbit). The launch capacity of the H3 will increase to 6.5 tons or more to steadily respond to launch demand for a geostationary satellites, which are getting bigger and heavier. In addition, we can flexibly deal with payload weight and orbit by offering choices for the number of solid rocket boosters of zero, two, or four.

    The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency is moving ahead with testing of its new H3 rocket as it seeks to replace its aging flagship H-IIA launch vehicle.

    The first stage of the 5.2-meter-diameter H3 launcher was unveiled to press at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ Tobishima plant in Aichi Prefecture Jan. 24.

    The core stage is being transported to Tanegashima Space center for a series of tests beginning in February as part of preparations for eventual launch.
