Wave environment is a common fact happened when objects enter water under real conditions, which changes the morphology of the free interface when entering water. However, the influence of wave environment on the flow when entering water and on the evolution of object motion parameters after entering water is not clear. In this research, a rocking plate wave maker is used to generate a wave environment in the test pool, and a truncated cone rotating body equipped with an internal test system is used as the test model. The compressed air cannon is used to provide launch power, and the launch control system uniformly controls the start timing process of the wave maker and the launcher. The wave maker and the launcher will control the relative position of the object's entry point and the wave surface in collaboration. Various condition tests were carried out, including enter in static water, different wave surface positions and different wave heights. Quantitative trajectory parameters including the acceleration, and attitude angle of the model in the water-entry process were obtained, and the evolution of the flow field was photographed. The experimental results show that under high-speed conditions, the influence of waves on the water-entry process is mainly reflected in the change of the water entry angle relative to the water surface at the water-entry moment. The wave surface encountering negative inclination can effectively reduce the impact load of water entry, but it is more likely to induce the extreme situation such as "jumping".
