GalaxySpace said its Internet satellites are designed to be stacked dozens on top of each other and launched at the same time on a single rocket. This will significantly improve the efficiency of using rockets and reduce the time to build a satellite network.
Satellite Internet will provide broadband connectivity, using satellites in space to act as base stations on the ground to connect to the terrestrial network, or in other words, each satellite is a base station mobile to move in space. It can provide users around the world with high-speed, flexible and convenient Internet access services.
In addition, each stacked satellite can carry a flexible, small, lightweight and modular array of solar batteries, helping to reduce launch mass and costs, the satellite manufacturer said. China on December 23.
Commissioned in April 2018, GalaxySpace aims to build a broadband satellite network, deployed in low Earth orbit and create a global 5G communications network. On March 5, 2022, the company launched six broadband communications satellites from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, which verified the network technology and service capabilities of “Internet Constellation”.
Chang Ming, satellite project commander, said that if the development process goes smoothly, GalaxySpace’s stackable Internet satellites will be launched early next year.
