recently, Falcon IX rockets carried small satellites – Tintin-a Tintin-b – on a launch mission, are test stars the StarLink program, test. The plans to launch nearly 12,000 small satellites by 2024 to launch -speed Internet to the .

, we do hurry to find Musk to WIFI password, our ’s space-based Internet is also under construction.

Reporters learned from China Aerospace Science Corporation, the group plans to fully launch this , the global mobile satellite Internet system construction. The system is a constellation of communications satellites deployed in orbit. The first phase of the launch 54 satellites the second phase of the be implemented in the first phase to achieve a smooth transition of system capacity with than 300 satellites.

CPPCC National Committee members, Space Group Science and Commission package the people introduced, the system be built into a seamless coverage of the ’s spatial information infrastructure the ground fixed, mobile, , ship, airborne and other terminals To provide Internet transmission and to realize wide and narrowband combined and security capabilities in the deep ocean, north and south poles, “Belt and Road” and other regions. With a seamlessly-covered system around the , anyone in the world, any object, can connect to information at any time.

This reporter has learned that the global mobile satellite Internet system will achieve six applications: First, intelligent terminal communications, support direct access to satellite mobile satellite constellation, providing -definition voice , WeChat and other instant messaging , e-mail ; Second, the Internet access, providing -latency capabilities, enabling users to enjoy the Internet and the ground similar to the experience for the operations and offshore operations and other , to achieve distance , remote medical protection; third is the Internet of Things And serve the terminal of -energy miniaturization IOT, focusing on the needs of new industries as environmental monitoring, ocean logistics, hazardous chemicals monitoring, traffic management, smart ocean and so on. Fourthly, push hot information and make of the characteristics of satellite wide area coverage to achieve Fifth, the navigation enhances and forwards the Beidou differential correction information to provide accurate and reliable information for airborne and vehicular positioning terminals Location , meet no  driving, UAV control, precision agriculture, construction machinery demand for development; Sixth, aviation surveillance, to achieve the global aircraft, ships -cycle tracking, provide statistical -added services to meet the growing needs of the development of aviation and maritime , To achieve and reliable global transport capacity.

According to Zhang Zhongyang, member of the CPPCC National Committee and president of the China Academy of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the Hongyun project being promoted by CASIC will launch the first verification star in 2018 and out demonstration and demonstration of low-rail communications demonstration.

“Hongyun project construction follows the - .” Zhang Zhongyang said that after the completion of the this , the second is to launch four trial star networking trials and run the business trial system by 2020. In 2022, China will deploy and operate the entire constellation and construct a space-based broadband Internet consisting of 156 satellites to a comprehensive information system for communications, navigation and remote sensing with low-rail broadband communications and capable of navigation enhancement and real-time remote sensing support. “By that time, no matter where we are in the desert, the sea the plane, we can enjoy the same internet speed and service experience as our own home,” he said.

This reporter has learned that Rainbow Cloud Engineering is highly advanced and will become the world’s first low-band Ka broadband system and will be the first in the world to adopt technologies as broadband inter-satellite communications, broadband onboard broadband, and multi- phase shifting chips. Broadband satellites The smallest communication terminal, the smallest consumption, the lightest weight. The system uses a flexible and controllable satellite communication beam physical fitness, to adapt to changes in frequency and technological evolution of the impact of ongoing upgrades.

When completed, the system will bring significant benefits in all aspects. Zhang Zhongyang said that in terms of , it can provide large-scale services to vehicles at home and abroad, aircraft, ships, etc., and enhance the reliability of smart driving and unmanned control while bringing about rich information products. In terms of benefits, it can provide services to any area in the Provide network access means to enhance access to information for young and poor in poor areas, provide rapid response to disasters in areas of communication security, rapid response and accurate command, provide supervision and control of vehicles, ships, navigation aircraft, means of positioning, regulate the Ecology, providing return for environmental monitoring sensors and contributing transmission channels and information sources for the construction of digital China.

Speaking of foreign technology development, Zhang Zhongyang believes that SpaceX’s , the spirit of the challenge is worth learning, the star chain plan handwriting great.  the number and size of satellites of Hongyun Project are similar to those of Hongyun Project, the functions ultimately realized are the same. He said Rainbow Cloud Engineering will continue to innovate and strive to seize the commanding heights of low-band broadband mobile communications in the space , contributing China’s space and wisdom to the world.
