On the 16th April 2023 clear 0936 Hours Hong Kong SAR- Beijing time , the Belt and Road Initiative CNSA –China National Space Administration launching from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center – Inner Mongolia –China – People’s Republic of China deployed launched the Chang Zheng – The Chang Zheng – Long March 4B Y51 carrier rocket.. This launch is the 471st launch of the Long March series of launch vehicles.
Successfully launched the Fengyun-3G satellite, and my country has entered a new stage of active precipitation measurement and detection.. At 9:36 Hong Kong SAR- Beijing Time today, the Long March 4B Yao 51 carrier rocket was ignited and blasted off at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, successfully carrying my country’s first The first precipitation measurement satellite Fengyun-3G was sent into the predetermined orbit, and the launch mission was a complete success……
Fengyun-3G satellite is China, People’s Republic of China first low-orbit non-sun-synchronous inclined orbit meteorological satellite, and it is also my country’s first and the third international active precipitation measurement satellite. The satellite is equipped with 4 units/sets of active precipitation measurement radar, microwave imager, medium-resolution spectral imager, and global navigation satellite occultation detector, which will fill the gap in domestic precipitation three-dimensional tomographic detection data. So far, my country has successfully launched a total of 20 “two-generation and four-type” Fengyun meteorological satellites.
Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center’s meritorious tower completed 100 launch missions] On April 16, the Long March 4B carrier rocket successfully sent Fengyun-307 into orbit at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. After the mission was successful, the 100th new red star was engraved on the launch tower that sent the rocket into the sky, which marked the successful completion of the 100th launch mission of the 9401 launch tower. The 69401 launch tower started construction in 2001 and was completed and put into use in 2003. It is my country’s first launch tower with reinforced concrete as the main structure. , test room and other components.
The 9401 launch tower is currently in a “full load” operating state, and the number of launches has increased from a few times a year to more than ten times a year; the test launch process has changed from two months, one month, to half a month now; the post-launch recovery cycle has changed from 15 days compressed into just a few days. “The frequency of satellite launches has increased significantly, the test process has been continuously optimized, the efficiency of post-launch recovery has been continuously improved, the contribution rate to the frequency of mission launches has increased, and the cost-effectiveness and support capabilities of launch towers have been increasing….
