On the 10th December 2020 Thursday early mid-morning CNSA _China National Space Administration -China – People’s Republic of China successfully launched the All-Sky Monitor Satellite for Gravitational Wave Storm High-Energy Electromagnetic Correspondence At 4:14 Hong Kong – Beijing time on December 10, 2020, China used the International Icon Long March 11 –Chang Zheng carrier rocket at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center- Sichuan Province to using on carrier rocket launching and two satellites”. The all-sky monitor satellite of the gravitational wave storm high-energy electromagnetic counterpart was sent into a predetermined orbit, and the launch was a complete success….. Thursday’s launch was the 355th mission of the Long March rocket series.
The gravitational wave storm high-energy electromagnetic counterpart all-sky monitor satellite is deployed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Strategic Leading Science and Technology Special Space Science (Phase II). The two small satellites adopt a conjugate orbit constellation layout, which will be used for gravitational wave gamma bursts and fast radio bursts. High-energy radiation, special gamma bursts, and magnetar explosions and other high-energy celestial explosion phenomena are monitored throughout the sky, and dense celestial bodies such as neutron stars and black holes and their merger processes are studied. In addition, the satellite will also detect space high-energy radiation phenomena such as solar flares, earth gamma flashes and earth electron beams, and provide scientific observation data for further study of their physical mechanisms.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences is responsible for the organization and implementation of the gravitational wave storm high-energy electromagnetic counterpart all-sky monitor satellite project. The National Space Science Center is responsible for the development and construction of the general engineering and ground support system. The Institute of Microsatellite Innovation is responsible for the development of satellite systems and high-energy physics research. The unit that proposes scientific goals for the mission and is responsible for the development and construction of satellite payloads and scientific application systems. The Aerospace Information Innovation Institute is responsible for the ground reception of scientific data. The Long March 11 carrier rocket used for this launch was developed and produced by China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.
This mission is the 355th flight of the Long March series of carrier rockets…..
During the duration of the launching Xiamen Observation and Control Station successfully completed the all-sky monitor satellite measurement and control mission of the gravitational wave storm high-energy electromagnetic counterpart] “Sanya found the target, the tracking is normal!” “Xiamen double capture is completed, the telemetry signal is normal”…Beijing time December 10, 2020 At 4:14, my country used the Long March 11 carrier rocket at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center to successfully send the gravitational wave burst high-energy electromagnetic counterpart all-sky monitor satellite into a predetermined orbit with one arrow and two stars. After the rocket lifted off, the Sanya Observation and Control Station and the Xiamen Observation and Control Station discovered and captured the target in time, completed the telemetry data reception, and accurately sent it to the Xi’an Center, successfully completing the launch, measurement and control task. The following two monitoring and control sites will also take over the monitoring and control tasks of the satellite’s early orbital segment and long-term management segment
