China successfully launched the 02 Galaxy Satellites (six) and one commercial remote sensing satellite aboard a Long March-2C carrier rocket from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center this afternoon.
The satellites are mainly used to verify the networking technology and service capabilities of the Low-orbit Internet constellation, as well as remote sensing technology, according to the introduction.
According to a source from Aviation News,This is not only the first batch of six low-orbit broadband communication satellites successfully launched in China, but the performance indicators of these satellites also exceeded Musk's Starlink satellites.
The single satellite design capacity of the 02 batch of galaxy Space is more than 40Gbps, and the average weight of the satellite is about 190Kg. The single starlink satellite weighs more than 200kg, and the communication capacity is about 20Gbps.
In addition to higher communication capacity, the six satellites will form China's first low-orbit broadband communication test constellation in orbit, together with the Galaxy's first satellite, and build a satellite-ground integration 5G test network. Little Spider web ” , with a single 30 minutes of uninterrupted, low delay broadband communication service capability, can be used for China's low orbit satellite Internet, the integration of heaven and earth network and other technical verification.
