Xinhua News Agency, Xichang, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) - At 2357 hours on Nov. 1, China successfully launched the 17th Beidou-3 global networking satellite with the Long March No. 3 B carrier rocket at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center.

This satellite belongs to geostationary orbit satellite. It is the 41st Beidou navigation satellite and the first geostationary orbit satellite of Beidou 3 system.

In addition to providing basic navigation services (RNSS), the satellite will also provide short message services (RDSS) and satellite-based enhancement services (SBAS). Yang Changfeng, chief designer of Beidou satellite navigation system, said.

Yang Changfeng said that on the basis of full compatibility with Beidou No. 2 short message service, the capacity of short message service has been increased by 10 times, the transmission power of subscribers has been reduced by 10 times, and the capability has been greatly improved. In addition, the satellite will provide satellite-based enhancement services, in accordance with international civil aviation standards to provide more accurate, more intact navigation services.

At 16:29 on October 31, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake occurred in Xichang City, Liangshan Prefecture, Sichuan Province. The epicenter of the earthquake was only 50 kilometers away from the launch site. At that time, the conventional oxidant was being injected at the launch site. Li Benqi, Vice Minister of Planning Department of Xichang Satellite Launch Center, said: After the earthquake, the scientific and technological personnel of the center immediately organized the inspection of the status of the equipment of each system, and after confirmation, continued to complete the routine oxidant injection of rockets.

According to reports, the satellite has successfully entered the predetermined orbit, and will be tested and evaluated in the follow-up. The satellite will be networked with 16 Beidou-3 navigation satellites launched before, providing timely services.

Beidou Satellite Navigation System is a global satellite navigation system which is developing independently and running independently in China. It can provide users with high accuracy, high reliability of positioning, speed measurement and time service, and has unique short message communication capability. According to the plan, two middle earth orbit satellites will be launched by the end of this year. Yang Changfeng said that by then, Chinas Beidou will be built into a basic system and begin to serve the users of all countries and regions along the belt. The Beidou navigation satellite and the supporting launch vehicle were developed by the China Academy of Space Technology and the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology, affiliated to China Aerospace Science and Technology Group Co., Ltd. This is the 290th flight of the long march series launch vehicle. Source: Beijing News Editor: Qiao Jun Jing _NBJ11279
