newspaper Xichang August 3 electric Zhang Xiaoxia, Zhang Xiaoqi correspondent reports: at 5:30 on August 1, Xichang Satellite Launch Center will be our fifth Beidou navigation satellite into space transfer orbit. At this point, the center established 40 years ago, it has already, launch complex capable of achieving a six jump. Experts said that at present among the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in the ranks of world-class space launch.
Xichang Satellite Launch Center is China’s second Jiuquan, Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center, the 1970 formation of the third satellite launch center, are responsible for satellites in geosynchronous orbit, lunar exploration satellite and other space launch. Formed 40 years ago, the center of several generations of astronauts, as the motherland’s interests above all else, to create the first experimental communications satellite launch, the first launch of practical satellites, the first international commercial satellite launch, the first launch of lunar exploration satellite of China’s aerospace history number of “first”.
– from model rockets to launch a single rocket launch several models. In 1984, the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, a model can only use Long March III rocket, carrying more than 1400 kg of payload. Today, the Long March III A, III B Long March, Long March II C class 6 models rocket, the payload can be from tens of kilograms to tens of kilograms, ranging from satellites into space, carrying capacity rising.
– from single-to multi-fired fired fired fired. For a long time, only the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in the implementation of single-fired at launch. April 18, 2004, the Center for the first time the successful use of the North fired two small satellites into sun-synchronous orbit, marking the center and gradually have the ability to launch satellites of different shooting.
– from launch to launch geosynchronous satellites orbiting spacecraft and more. With the escalation of the launch facility, currently the Xichang Satellite Launch Center has achieved a single-orbit satellites from launch to launch high, medium and low orbit satellites, a variety of jump.
– domestic satellite from the launch to the international commercial satellite launching. Xichang Satellite Launch Center is the first opening, the number of contract up to international commercial satellite launch cosmodrome. From 1990 to now, has the “One Asia”, “Australia Star”, “Venezuela One” and nearly 20 successful international commercial satellite into space, to express to the world China’s peaceful use of space for the benefit of mankind’s goal show the world China’s aerospace firm pace.
– up to run three times a year from launching to launch 10 more satellites. Currently, the Xichang Satellite Launch Center has launched the test, measurement, control, communications, meteorology, technical service support of five major systems and two modern launch station, launching conversion cycle shortened, with the launching of the implementation of high-density capabilities, from the rocket approach to the implementation of the minimum firing time of only 21 days.
– from launch to close to controlling remote control mode test mode test launch. In recent years, with the rocket test launch command and control network to establish the center to achieve the rockets, satellites, remote testing and launch control, with a commanding display, information exchange, data processing, real-time monitoring, computer-aided decision-making and many other functions, test launching security and digital and information technology greatly enhanced the level of control.
