A Chinese company on Wednesday launched a satellite service platform to make satellite resources more accessible for users.
China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC), the platform's designer, announced the news at the 5th China (International) Commercial Aerospace Forum in Wuhan.

As part of the commercial space development plan of the group, the platform is aimed at meeting the demands of various industries for satellite resources, said Xu Tao from the CASIC.
