"The 6G era will be an integration of satellite and ground communications networks, thus truly realizing global communications. The 6G band will be expanded from 5G mean maximum weight to terahertz. The test satellite is the first technical demonstration of terahertz communications scenarios in space."

Storyline


China successfully sent the world's first 6G communications test satellite into orbit from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province on Friday.

The satellite was sent among 13 satellites by a Long March-6 carrier rocket at 11:19 (Beijing Time). It was the 351st by the Long March rocket series.

Named after the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, the satellite will carry out terahertz communications tests in space to validate satellite high-speed communications technology, which will be one of the core technologies for future sixth-generation communications.

"The 6G era will be an integration of satellite and ground communications networks, thus truly realizing global communications. The 6G band will be expanded from 5G mean maximum weight to terahertz. The test satellite is the first technical demonstration of terahertz communications scenarios in space," said Xu Yangsheng, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Terahertz is a kind of electromagnetic wave with frequency between microwave and infrared. The 6G test satellite carries a terahertz communications payload independently developed by China. Compared with laser communications, terahertz communications can operate all weather and 24 hours a day and is easy to align and easy to miniaturize. So it is suitable for high-speed communications and data transmission between the stars.

"Terahertz communications has a capacity of terabytes per second. It is expected to increase the communications speed of 5G by more than 100 times. Terahertz can be used for nondestructive transmission in space and can be used for long-distance communications with low transmitting power, which makes terahertz widely available for satellite Internet use," said Lu Chuan, dean of the satellite industry technology research institute of the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China.

The satellite also carries optical remote sensing payload, which will be used for crop disaster monitoring, forest fire prevention, forest resource investigation, water conservancy and mountain flood disaster monitoring, providing a wealth of satellite images and data for users.

Among the 13 satellites, Bayi-03 is China's third satellite dedicated to popularizing science for middle school students. The satellite carries a payload of audio recordings of students that they can then pick up from space via a ground-based receiver.

The students from Jinshan Senior High School in Taiyuan City participated in the development and design of the satellite, and the close contact with astronautics experts also deepened students' understanding of aerospace.

"What impressed me most is that the experts are meticulous in their work. They ensure 0.01 or even 0.001 accuracy. I've been very interested in space and now I became more enthusiastic about it after taking part in this event. So, I became more determined in my life goal to make contributions to the space industry of my country," said Xue Ruide, a student of the school.

The Bayi-03 satellite was initiated by the Taiyuan Bureau of Education and the China Center for Aerospace Science and Technology International Communications. It has been developed since August 2018.

The satellite has functions including remote sensing observation of celestial bodies, earth observation, and coordinated programming education of universe, providing students with a platform of space science popularization and educational practice.
