Joining hands with the space agency, CUHK remote sensing satellite will be launched as early as next year

The first optical remote sensing satellite project funded by the Hong Kong government, "The Chinese University of Hong Kong Science Satellite 1", is expected to be launched with the assistance of the National Space Administration next year or in 2025. In the future, it will serve Hong Kong's smart city construction, carbon neutrality, and the United Nations' 2030 sustainable development. target research areas. Yesterday, CUHK signed a memorandum of cooperation with representatives from the Earth Observation and Data Center of the National Space Administration.

Help build smart cities and prevent and mitigate disasters

CUHK started developing CUHK Science Satellite 1 in August this year. Maple Kwan, Director of the Institute of Space and Earth Information Science at CUHK, said that landslide disasters occur frequently in Hong Kong due to storms. Satellite remote sensing technology can be used to quickly identify the location and scope of landslides. After the satellite is launched, it will continue to assist civil engineering projects. The TDD's emergency response and disaster prevention and mitigation will also assist the Lands Department in implementing smart land management, including identifying changes in land features such as the affected areas of wildfires and hidden buildings.

Former U.S. President Trump signed an executive order requesting the U.S. Geological Survey under the Department of the Interior to suspend cooperation with the Institute of Space and Earth Information Sciences of CUHK. When asked whether there would be opportunities for academic cooperation with American universities in the future, Michelle Kwan said, Its hard to say what the future holds, emphasizing that CUHK has always maintained an open attitude.

The Institute of Space and Earth Information Science of CUHK was established in 2005. It is the Hong Kong research, development and training base of the National Remote Sensing Center of the Ministry of Science and Technology. It is also the only national satellite remote sensing innovation and technology platform in Hong Kong. The institute has three major goals, including becoming China's The Tropical and Subtropical Remote Sensing Center conducts research on remote sensing applications in cloudy and rainy areas; becomes an academic exchange center for urban geographical information across the Taiwan Straits, building an urban planning and management information system with Chinese cultural characteristics; and makes good use of Hong Kong's international environment to build space and earth information Center for International Scientific Exchange and Cooperation.

The institute owns a "Satellite Remote Sensing Ground Receiving Station", which is a research facility used to record and process data received from satellites and monitor natural disasters such as landslides, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods and typhoons. It provides important services for Hong Kong, South China and surrounding areas. Government and private agencies provide information.
The Xianggang Zhongwen Daxue Kexue-1 (香港中文大学科学卫星一号) will be launched in 2025.

香港中文大学 has an english name,The Chinese University of Hong Kong or CUHK
You obviously have some problems with the understanding of the use of Pinyin on many occasions. In this case, it is unnecessary to use Pinyin, which may seem awkward, but considering that your native language is probably not Chinese, it is not surprising

Here has a loose rules that is use PinYin ASAP, so that reader here can know what Chinese pronounce it.
By the way, I am a native Chinese!

You need to understand that the pronunciation rules of Pinyin often differ from those of English. For English speakers, Pinyin cannot be directly read out very often, and from a comprehension perspective, free translation may be a more appropriate option.

mikezang is correct. The preferred naming of Chinese satellites in English is to use their PinYin transliteration. English translations are rarely used.
