China’s first private 5G low-orbit broadband satellite with a communication capacity of 10 Gbps has been officially released recently. It is expected to be launched at the end of December with a fast boat No. 1A rocket.
It is understood that this satellite is the first Q / V-band satellite independently developed by China Aerospace Corporation Yinhe Aerospace, and also the first 200 kilogram-class satellite developed by China Commercial Aerospace Corporation, with an orbital altitude of 1200 kilometers. It covers an area of 300,000 square kilometers, which is equivalent to about 50 Shanghai.
The factory state of the satellite is an important stage of satellite development, which indicates that the satellite hardware and software have all entered a solid-state. The successful launch of Galaxy Aerospace’s starting star means that the ground test of China’s first low-orbit broadband satellite with a communication capacity of 10Gbps has entered a stable and reliable state of technology.
Xu Ming, founder, chairman, and CEO of Galaxy Aerospace said that starting from the starting star, Galaxy Aerospace will take the first step of the “Space Internet”. In the future, Galaxy Aerospace will develop and produce low-cost, high-performance 5G satellites on a large scale. Build a space Internet, bridge the digital divide, and connect 5G satellite networks to every corner of the planet.
In recent years, American commercial space companies One web and SpaceX have taken the lead in laying out low-orbit communication constellations. In the design of communication bandwidth, Galaxy Aerospace benchmarks internationally advanced technology, and for the first time, it achieves technical benchmarking of international 10Gbps communication capabilities on domestic private low-orbit broadband satellites.
In fact, although the 5G era has begun, the current global network coverage still faces major challenges. It is difficult for ground base stations to cover areas such as deserts and oceans. Low-orbit broadband communication satellites can solve the problem of global network coverage and access. It is expected that 4 billion people in the world with information poverty can enjoy the online world.
In the not-too-distant future, scenes such as short videos on the plane and video calls are expected to become popular. In addition, because the speed of light in fiber is slower than the speed of radio in space, future low-orbit broadband communication satellites will bring more convenient experience to live broadcast reporters, financial practitioners and other people who require strict time synchronization.
Zhang Shijie, a partner and a satellite technology expert at Galaxy Aerospace, said: “Today, with the rapid development of global commercial communications satellites, it is important to arrange satellite frequency orbits in advance. It can be predicted that the demand for low-band resources will continue to increase and resources will become increasingly tight. .China Commercial Aerospace Company has the possibility to ‘change lanes and overtake cars’ in the international arena only if it deploys high-frequency communication as soon as possible. Galaxy Aerospace’s starting star is the first Q / V band low-orbit broadband satellite independently developed by a Chinese private company. important meaning.
