GalaxySpace, recognized for its contributions to satellite technologies and broadband internet services, is charting a new course in the space industry with this project. The company's founder and CEO, Xu Ming, detailed the satellite's design and capabilities at the Aerospace Information Industry International Ecosystem Event 2023, held in Southwest China's Chongqing.
Xu described the satellite as having a "carpet-shaped design," a term that likely refers to a novel structural approach for optimizing space utilization and signal coverage. This design choice is indicative of the company's commitment to leveraging innovative techniques in satellite construction. He further elaborated that both communication antennae and solar panels will be integrated into the satellite, denoting a convergence of phased array antenna technology and solar wing integration. This integration represents a significant step forward in ensuring efficient power use and robust signal transmission capabilities, essential for maintaining consistent and reliable communication links.
Emphasizing the satellite's power system, Xu noted its strength, a critical feature for facilitating effective signal transmission. This focus on a strong power system is crucial in the context of space-based communication, where the reliability and quality of signal transmission can be affected by a variety of space and atmospheric conditions.
GalaxySpace's initiative aligns with the current trends in space infrastructure development, characterized by a shift towards low-orbit, large-scale, and cost-effective solutions. These trends are reflective of the broader industry's movement towards leveraging advancements in satellite technology, including miniaturization and reduced launch costs, to expand the scope and accessibility of space-based services.
The Aerospace Information Industry International Ecosystem Event in Chongqing, which took place on November 20 and 21, witnessed participation from 434 enterprises and 67 institutions from around the globe. This congregation served as a platform for discussions and collaborations centered on the future of the aerospace information industry, highlighting the growing interest and potential in this sector.
