China First Mining Specialized Satellite Kuangda Nanhu to be Launched Next Month
Revolutionizing the Mining Industry: China's First Specialized Satellite 'Kuangda Nanhu'
On June 24th, it was learned from the Secretariat of the Xuzhou Intelligent Mining Innovation Cluster that China's first mining specialized satellite, "Kuangda Nanhu," has entered the final stage of comprehensive testing. It is scheduled to be launched from Taiyuan in mid-July this year. This marks the official initiation of China's "Intelligent Mine Satellite Chain Plan," which will provide reliable data support and diversified professional services for the development of China's mining industry and even the world.
According to the relevant person in charge of the Secretariat of the Xuzhou Intelligent Mining Innovation Cluster, "Kuangda Nanhu" is led by the China University of Mining and Technology's State Key Laboratory of Coal Resources and Safe Mining, which is also the chairman unit of the Intelligent Mining Innovation Cluster. The design and investment of the satellite were carried out by the member unit Beijing Four-Imaging Aishu Technology Co., Ltd., with support and promotion from Xugong Group.
"Kuangda Nanhu" remote sensing satellite is an X-band sun-synchronous SAR satellite fully researched, independently designed, and rigorously verified by member units of the cluster. It has outstanding performance and service life, and is a high-resolution (sub-meter level), lightweight, commercial synthetic aperture radar satellite. It adopts phased array antennas, providing advantages of all-weather and all-time operation, as well as excellent performance and service life.
According to Zhou Wei, Vice Chairman and Secretary-General of the Intelligent Mining Innovation Cluster, and Deputy Director of the State Key Laboratory of Coal Resources and Safe Mining at China University of Mining and Technology, based on advanced technologies in the domestic commercial space industry, "Kuangda Nanhu" remote sensing satellite can empower the entire intelligent mine industry chain and provide more accurate, higher-frequency, and real-time data. Through this data, member units of the Intelligent Mining Innovation Cluster can gain a better understanding of the current technological status and progress of intelligent construction in mines, as well as the sources of intelligent technologies. Simultaneously, they can also understand the sales situation of technology companies and their technology export directions. The data from the "Kuangda Nanhu" remote sensing satellite can also monitor the operational status of mines in real-time, such as vehicle operations and mine safety. Furthermore, through dynamic satellite data, the safety production of mines can be better monitored.
