It is understood that the Macao Science-1 satellite is the first scientific satellite jointly developed by the mainland and Macao, and it is also the first international scientific exploration satellite for low-latitude geomagnetic field and space environment.
The satellite adopts the joint observation mode of & ldquo; A + B satellite & rdquo;, which will provide valuable data for the long-term study of geomagnetic field evolution.To further promote China's research in the fields of space weather forecasting and space operation safety of spacecraft.
The Chang 2C rocket and the Macao Science I satellite A satellite used in the launch were developed by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Group, and this is the 474th launch of the long March series of carrier rockets.
Luojia No.1 satellite, developed by Wuhan University, is mainly used to verify SAR remote sensing radar technology and navigation enhancement technology. The satellite can complete Ka band imaging, multi-angle three-dimensional information acquisition, video SAR and other new modes and new system on-orbit verification.
