THE WORLD IS ALWAYS CHANGING
Launched in Oct. 2018 CZ-2CXiaoxiang-1-02 is a new-technology verification satellite for laser communications, jointly developed by SPACETY and LaserFleet. The latter is a commercial aerospace startup company based in the southern city of Shenzhen, which plans to build a low Earth orbit constellation consisting of hundreds of satellites to create a laser communication network in space, to provide high-speed internet access for civil aircraft. As the first test mission for this project, the satellite will carry out a series of basic technical verification tests and lay the foundation for future work.
Launched in Oct. 2018 CZ-2CTongchuan-1 (TY4-02) is the first experimental verification satellite for the Tiange astrophysics project, jointly developed by SPACETY, Tsinghua University and the government of Tongchuan city, Shaanxi province. This satellite is equipped with a newly developed high-sensitivity X-ray polarization detector for astronomical observation testing. In addition, it will verify inter-satellite communication technology and attempt to link up with a new satellite ground station constructed by the space technology company Xingyi.
Launched in Oct. 2018 CZ-2CXinghe (TY1-03) is a remote-sensing technology verification satellite jointly developed by SPACETY and ADASPACE, a private Chinese commercial satellite company. They are going to establish a global, minute-level updated Earth image data network consisting of 192 satellites. And this satellite is the first of its constellation, exploring a new range of commercial services.
Launched in Oct. 2018 CZ-2CChangshagaoxin (TY4-01) is an amateur radio satellite developed by SPACETY, designed to conduct a world-wide communication experiment for amateur radio enthusiasts. This satellite will also verify SPACETY’s independently developed next-generation satellite platform.
Launched in JAN. 2018 CZ-11
TY-6 is an Emergency Rescue Technology Test Satellite developed by Spacety which is based on 6U cubic star platform of the TY series as same as TY-2. It was launched by “Long March 11 Solid Launch Vehicle” in Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre on January 19, 2018.
The main mission: by using AIS payload and the visible light tracking cameras, the target ship can be identified and tracked. At the same time, the satellite has the function of emergency information broadcast, and can complete the collection of the broadcast in emergency information signals.
Loads: five technical verification tests, such as the integrated navigation, micro commercial camera, AIS, IOT and UV-TTC load.
Result: it took about 6 months on this satellite from the signing of the contract to the satellite was launched, which verified the service mode of the short-cycle, low-return, one-stop satellite of Spacety; the satellite now is in orbit, the platform and load function are running well, and parts of the experiment of loads has been successfully completed.
Launched in Nov. 2018 CZ-11
TY-2 is the first standardized satellite based on 6U Cube Platform of the TY series, being independently developed by Spacety. It was launched by “Long March 11 Solid Launch Vehicle” in Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre on January 19, 2018.
The main mission: to make a technical verification of four kinds of loads.
Loads: space software radio; optical fiber sensing; optical image stabilization and radio tracking.
Results: it achieved the requirements of one-satellite verification of multiple loads. And now, this satellite is operating in orbit, satellite platforms and payloads are functioning well, and partial load experiments have been successfully completed.
Launched in Nov. 2016 CZ-11
"XX-1" is the first satellite from Spacety. It is a 6U cubsat and weights 8kg. It has been fully developed by Spacety within one year. It carries four payload for scientific research: software-defined radio experiment, navigation signal enhancement experiment, verification of optical image stabilization and verification of a novel on-board computer.
Launched in Feb. 2017 PSLV-C37
DIDO 2 has been developed by SpacePharma (an Israeli satellite company), Spacety, Institute of process engineering and Institute of mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, based on their respective research and technical advantages. DIDO 2 is 3U cubesat and serves for research in microgravity environment. On DIDO2, the experiments in multiphase fluid mechanics and chemical transfer applications has been performed. It was the first time for China to perform chemical engineering experiments in space.
Gamma Ray Integrated Detectors
Plan to launch in 2018
GRID is a collaboration between the Tsinghua Center for Astrophysics (THCA) and SPACETY. Its main scientific objective is to identify and locate the electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational wave bursts detected by LIGO.
Navigation communication integration
Plan to launch in 2017
QTT-1 is the first technical verification satellite for the "future constellation programme" which is customized and developed by Tianyi Research Institute for Full-chart Location Network Co., Ltd. Based on the mature 6U satellite platform of the company, the satellite was developed in a standardized way, which mainly carried out the integration technology of communication navigation remote sensing, emergency information receiving and wide-field broadcasting technology and other flight verification.
Time-share satellite carrying an optical telescope
Plan to launch in 2018
UCloud Yunhan is an astronomical satellite, developed by the Tianyi research institute, and the cloud computing service UCloud is responsible for the data processing of its star. The satellite customizes satellite functions by soliciting creative demands from the public, the satellite will also be open for the function of periodic lease after the launch of the satellite , the public can reserve a certain time period to observe astronomy in person through a third-party platform.
X-Ray Integrated Detectors
Plan to launch in Dec. 2017The aurora program is a scientific satellite program, developed jointly by Tainyi research institute and the astrophysics center of Tsinghua university for X-ray polarization detection of the crab nebula. It detects with polarization the crab nebula and the internal pulsar by the 2 -10 kev energy continuum X-ray mainly based on the photoelectric effect.
