NUDT contributes to the 56th BeiDou Navigation Satellite


On May 17, the 56th satellite for China's BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) was launched successfully. This Geosynchronous Earth Orbit satellite is the first backup satellite of the BDS-3. College of Electronic Science and Technology undertakes the development of the satellite payload.

The college is responsible for the payloads of inter-satellite link transceiver, up-link data injection receiver, and integrity monitoring receiver, which can ensure the inter-satellite and ground station-satellite communication, and can monitor satellite status. Compared with former satellite payloads, the new payloads carried by this backup satellite promote the capability of resisting space radiation, ensuring their stable operation.

As the main force of BDS development, College of Electronic Science and Technology is committed to achieving sci-tech self-reliance and self-strengthening, making remarkable contributions to the independent development of BDS.
