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

However, we do not hurry to find to WIFI password, our country’s space-based is also under construction.

Reporters learned from China Aerospace Technology Corporation, the group plans to fully launch year, the global mobile broadband satellite construction. The is a constellation of communications satellites deployed in orbit. The phase of the will launch 54 satellites the second phase of the will be implemented in the phase to achieve a smooth transition of capacity with than satellites.

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

reporter has learned that the global mobile broadband satellite Internet system will achieve six applications: , intelligent terminal communications, support for direct access to satellite mobile satellite constellation, providing -definition voice , WeChat and other instant messaging , e-mail ; Second, the Internet access, providing -latency data capabilities, enabling users to enjoy the Internet and the ground network similar to the experience for the operations and offshore operations and other , to achieve distance , remote protection; is the Internet of Things And serve the terminal of -energy miniaturization IOT, focusing the needs of new industries such as environmental monitoring, ocean logistics, hazardous chemicals monitoring, traffic , smart ocean and so . Fourthly, hot information and full use 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 , meet no Vehicle driving, UAV control, precision agriculture, construction machinery market demand for development; Sixth, aviation surveillance, to achieve the global aircraft, ships full-cycle tracking, provide statistical value-added services to meet the growing needs of the development of aviation and maritime , To achieve and reliable global transport capacity.

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

“Hongyun project construction follows the three-step strategy.” Zhang Zhongyang said that after the completion of the year, the second step is to launch four trial star trials and run the business trial system by 2020. In 2022, China will deploy and the entire constellation and construct a space-based broadband Internet network 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 or the plane, we enjoy the same internet speed and experience as our own home,” he said.

This reporter has learned that Rainbow Cloud Engineering is highly and will become the world’s first low-band Ka broadband system and will be the first in the world to adopt technologies such as broadband inter-satellite communications, broadband onboard broadband, and multi- phase shifting chips. Broadband satellites The smallest communication terminal, the smallest power consumption, the lightest weight. The system uses a flexible and controllable satellite communication beam physical fitness, flexibility 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 economy, it 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 . In terms of social benefits, it can provide services to any area in the country 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 data return for environmental monitoring sensors and contributing transmission channels and information for the construction of China.

Speaking of foreign technology development, Zhang Zhongyang believes that SpaceX’s , the spirit of the challenge is worth , the star chain plan handwriting . Although 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.
