Developing Satellite Carry Business, Build up Service infrastructure;
Focusing On Own Technology development and make Satellites to Life
At 1551 hours on February 2, 2018, the world's first panoramic satellite and China's first private satellite, Fengmaniu 1, launched successfully from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center aboard the Long March II D rocket. "Fengmaniu 1" satellite is jointly developed by Beijing Zero-Weight Space Technology Co., Ltd. and Lingke Space Technology Co., Ltd. Zero-Weight Space is responsible for the overall design of the whole satellite, the development of components and the total assembly and measurement. ZG3U-1 satellite platform with independent intellectual property rights in zero-weight space was first applied to Fengmaniu-1 satellite. This satellite is equipped with 4K high-definition panoramic camera, which can display space high-definition photos 360 degrees. At the same time, it has digital space that can carry user's original content and interact with the public.
On September 5, 2018, a 3U cubic satellite load EREBUS-1 (hereinafter referred to as EREBUS-1) developed by Zero Gravity Laboratory successfully completed the sub-orbital separation, return and recovery landing tests on the hyperbolic 1Z verification rocket of Beijing Interplanetary Glory Space Technology Co., Ltd. in a satellite launch center in Northwest China. The five institutes of Twelve Academies of Aerospace Science and Technology and Shenzhou Laboratory of Aerospace Science and Technology provide technical support for recovery, which is designed and implemented by Zero Gravity Laboratory (Hangzhou Branch) and Beijing Institute of Space Mechatronics. The technical team's advantages in cubic satellite design, trajectory calculation, recovery and landing technology ensure the complete success of the test. The experiment is a substantive cooperation in the field of commercial aerospace both inside and outside the system under the background of civil-military integration. The success of the recovery test not only expands the new field of commercial aerospace technology, but also opens up a broader field of commercial aerospace application.
The first technology validation satellite of Magpie constellation was successfully launched in Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center of China on January 21, 2019, aboard Long March 11 launch vehicle.
The second technology validation satellite of the Magpie constellation was launched on March 27, 2019. The satellite was not orbited due to a rocket launch error.
On July 25, 2019, Beijing Zero Weight Space Technology Co., Ltd. (Zero Gravity Laboratory) test load "HECATE-1" was launched from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center on board the hyperbola-1 Yaoyao-1 launch vehicle of Beijing Star Glory Space Technology Co., Ltd. (SQX-1 Y1 for short). "HECATE-1" is a self-developed test load for technical verification in zero gravity laboratory.
