China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) has announced its rocket rideshare program schedule in 2023 and 2024.

The program will include nine launch opportunities, with the launch windows running from August 2023 to the fourth quarter of 2024.

The CASC's subsidiaries -- the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology and the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology -- will develop the carrier rockets. The China Great Wall Industry Corporation (CGWIC) will provide launch services.

CGWIC has completed three rideshare launches since 2021, using the Long March-6, Long March-8, and Long March-2D carrier rockets.

Since Long March launch vehicles entered the international market in 1990, CGWIC has completed 79 commercial launches for 72 international and 74 domestic satellites.
