I have not heared anything on the israeli built HK-Sat comsats for a while. I've got the impression, that they have been cancelled. Has anyone any infos?

The HK-Sat contracts were cancelled in January 2003. Old story now.

BTW, weren't SM(M)S and HJ-1B the same satellite?

Your Rascom launch date might be quite optimistic.

AFAIK there's no real technical challenge here but money doesn't seem to be there. All the more that I'm not sure - despite what Xinhua said once - that the formal launch contract was actually signed (but I may be wrong).

July - CZ-3B - Xichang - Chinasat-8

Has the SS/Loral-built Chinasat-8 finally cleared the export hurdles or is this an other satellite without ITAR restrictions?

Trying once again to have an idea about the chinese launch schedule for 2007 (this information is based on several Internet sources ( http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/calendar/calendar.html and http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Launchpad/1921/schedule.htm , and comments in NSF):

January - KT-1 - Taiyuan - PS-2

July - CZ-3A - Xichang - Beidou-2A

2007(??) - CZ-3B - Xichang - RascomStarQAF-1

??? - ??? - ??? - Hai Yang-2A

Making a search on the net about Chinasat-8. It looks like the problems of granting a export license for this satellite were never resolved. I've found this http://www.spaceandtech.com/digest/sd2000-26/sd2000-26-003.shtml .

Satori, I appreciate your effort in trying to catalogue the future Chinese launches. So keep up the good work. Im ecspecially interested in the KT-1, hopefully it will achieve a mission succes this time around.

Well, some of this launches will be delayed to 2008 for sure...

According to Xinhua ( http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2006-11/13/content_5322002.htm ), China will launch two Beidou sats on the begining of 2007.

The chinese launch schedule for 2007 (this information is based on several Internet sources ( http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/calendar/calendar.html and http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Launchpad/1921/schedule.htm ,comments in NSF):

2007(??) - CZ-3B - Xichang - RascomStarQAF-1

Looking again at the schedule on the Space Calendar, we can see that the launch of Chinasat-8 is schedule for October 2007. So, this must be other satellite but I will wait and try to check it before adding to this schedule.
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: Skyrocket on 11/16/2006 03:57 pm
I have found finally, what happened to the original Chinasat 8: It has been sold and will be launched as "ProtoStar 1" in 2008

http://www.protostarsat.com/protostar_11.htm

If there is really a Chinasat 8 in the chinese schedule, it must be another satellite.

Little bit of additional info from this  artilce (http://www.space.com/news/061129_china_moonplans.html) on Chang'e. Tests of the probe to be completed by February next year, launch somewhat later, probably April. Probe based on Dongfanghong III telecommunication satellite platform.

The Space Calendar (http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/calendar/calendar.html) says that the next Beidou navigation sat will be launched next August.

The possible Chinese launch schedule:

June/July - CZ-3B - Xichang - Zhonxing-6B (Chinasat-6B)

Also, the Space Calendar (http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/calendar/calendar.html)  is now showing the launch of Zhongxing-6B (Chinasat-6B) in July 2008. This scheduling contradicts the most recent info about the launch of this communications satellite. This launch was probably delayed to July 2007.

The Shi Jian-9 launch is schedule in various Internet sources like The Space Calendar and The Space Launcher. Other sources present this as the Seeds Sat-2, but this sat will be launched in 2008. I didn't find any 'official' source' about this launch.
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule

Shi Jian-9 is not a Seeds sat.

This is a technology test satellite developed for the Commission of Science.Technology and industry for National Defence (COSTIND).It is primarily designed to carry out in-orbit demonstration of such technologies and new products as electric propulsion,high-precision and high-stability control system,high-efficiency power supply and advanced thermal control techniques.It will also be used for Earth observation and for tests of indigenously developed key components and devices.

This is a 'official' source'  about Shi Jian-9 from China Air Show 2006.I have a photo about it.
And another imformation said in next block dfh-4 will use electric propulsion.

COMS will not be launched by a CZ-3B rocket. The launch  has been contracted with Arianespace
(see http://www.arianespace.com/site/news/news_sub_release_index.html )

AsiaSat 5 has bee contracted with SeaLauch for Zenit-3SLB Land Launch. As it is a Loral built satellite, it would not get a ITAR permission for a chinese launch (the same problem  stalled the Chinasat-8 contract)

The possible Chinese launch schedule for the remaining of 2007 and 2008:

August (?) - CZ-2D2 - Jiuquan - Shi Jian 9
September/October - CZ-4B - Taiyuan - CBERS-2B
October 1 - CZ-3A - Xichang - Chang'e-1 (ChangEr-1)
October - CZ-3B - Xichang - ZhongXing-9 (Chinasat-9)
September or November - CZ-4B - Taiyuan - Feng Yun-3A; SMMS
End 2007 - CZ-3C - Xichang (?) - ???
??? 2007 - CZ-3A - Xichang - BeiDou

2008

February - CZ-2C - Xichang - HJ-1A Huan Jing-1A; HJ-1B Huan Jing-1B
March - KT-2 - Taiyuan - PS-2
June - CZ-3B - Xichang - XinNuo-3B (SinoSat-3B)
July - CZ-4B - Taiyuan - CBERS-3
July - CZ-3B - Xichang - Simon Bolivar (VENESAT-1)
September - CZ-2F (7) - Jiuquan - ShenZhou-7
2008 - CZ-2C - Xichang - HJ-1C Huan Jing-1C

2008 - CZ-3B - Xichang - Apstar-6B
end of 2008 - ????? - ????? - TianHui-1

There will also be the launch of some BeiDou navigation sat's.

Any help in refining this schedule will be very helpfull

CTDRS-1 possibly will be launched late 2007 or 2008.
And it's name should be Tianlian-1.

No, but currently there are no payloads for CZ-2E versions. The CZ-2E with kick motor was used for GTO launches, while the CZ-3B was under development. Now the CZ-2E would ounly be used for LEO, as it has no third stage.

If the TL-1 is based on the DFH-3 bus, as quoted by Sinodefence.com (http://sinodefence.com/strategic/spacecraft/tianlian1.asp ), then TL-1 could possibly be the payload for the mysterious CZ-3C.

Yes, you are right Gunter. I hade already raised that question to Jin Zhen. According to him "...the CZ-3A is enough to launch the DFH-3 based sats but if there is the possibility of the Tian Lian-1 to have a set of complex antennas, then the CZ-3C may well carry this sat on it's first flight!" We will have to wait and see...

No, no news about SJ-9 and to be honest I don't think this launch will take place today (hope I'am wrong!).

Can you say why you think Cheng'e-1 launch will take place on October 26? Is that related to the end of the 17th CPC National Congress? This would be a good date to launch Chang'e-1.

Somebody added the date to Wikipedia, and seeing as 1 October isn't going to happen, it seems the most likley choice. Not a very reliable way of doing it, but logical.

Some new information points that the next CZ-4B launch could carry a YaoGan-3 sat.

Also, China had planned to launch the new NewTec-1 small sat until the end of the year, but probabliy this launch will slip to 2008. This is a technology test satellite, being the first vehicle of the NewTec satellite series, primarily designed to carry out in-orbit demonstration of new technologies and new products. The NewTwc-1 is a small sat, so it will be launched toghether with other satellite.

China seems to be systematically planning bigger things. Going by its performance till date it seems that they are very serious in their plans

Quoting from an Indian Newspaper

---------------------------


Beijing: China is well on track to launch its own space station by 2020. It is the first time that a timetable has been made public for building the space station, the China daily said here on Wednesday.
The planned space station is a “small scale 20-ton space workshop,” ‘The Daily’ quoted Long Lehao, a leading designer of long march 3a rocket which recently shot China’s first lunar probe, Chang’e 1, into space, as saying.
But, a spokesman of the China National Space Administration (CNSA) said the country had not set any specific timetable for developing a space station.
China would focus on manned spaceflight and lunar exploration in the near future, CNSA spokesman Li Guoping said.
“No plans issued by the government so far has said we are going to develop a space station,” Li said.
China, the third country after the United States and Russia to put its astronauts into space using its own rocket, has made technology breakthroughs in developing new family of rocket launchers, Long said.
The planned space station is expected to be the second operational one after the 400-ton international space station, a joint project of 16 nations, including the United States, Russia, and Japan, that orbits 300 km above the earth.
Meanwhile, China’s first lunar probe on Wednesday entered its working orbit, marking the success of its journey to begin studying the moon surface.
Following commands, Chang’e 1 entered a 127-minute round polar circular orbit after a nearly two million km journey to reach its final destination for carrying out planned scientific exploration.
“It marks the success of the probe’s long flight to the moon,” Luan Enjie, chief commander of China’s lunar probe project, said.
“The satellite entered the designed working orbit just in time and very accurately,” Sun Jiandong, chief designer of China’s ambitious project, said.

What happened to SST?

According to my source, the SST was canceled with China selecting the Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (HXMT) in the competition between SST and HXMT. The HXMT is schedule for launch in 2010.

Some new informations about the China launch schedule:

- My source said that we could expect 15 launches in 2008!
- The launch of XinNuo-4 will take place in 2009.
- Just for the record I'm adding the launch of YinHuo-1 by a Russian rocket in 2009.
- Chang'e-1 backup vehicle will possibly be launched in 2009.
- The new observation satellite ZY-3 Zi Yuan-3 will possibly be launched in 2009 or 2010.

It's very hard to get informations from the inside of the Chinese space programme. The only information I've got at this time is that the launch will take place in April / May. Let me remind that the FY-3A Feng Yun-3A launch was initially schedule for 2006 / 2007. In January Xinhua published some info saying that the launch would take place in the autumn of this year. So the launch has been successively delayed.

As soon as I have any other news about this I will post it :)

I have only seen mentions of first half of 2008 for FY-3A. Yet both FY-1C and FY-1D were launched in May.

A small update to the Chinese launch schedule (thanks to my source):

- The SMMS mission won't be launched with FY-3A Feng Yun-3A because the mission of this spacecraft will be made by the HJ-1A Huan Jing-1A or HJ-1B Huan Jing-1B satellite;

- Before the Olympic Games we will see the launch of the Olympic Youth Satellie, an amateur radio and youth education sat. This is a small satellite that probably will be launched with a bigger sat.

Just a little nitpcking: A hand deployed satellite would also be orbited by the CZ-2F - it has only a manual deployment.

Actually Chinese scientists haven't revealed how the satellite will be deployment. I guess both could be choice.

Post by: Satori on 02/19/2008 09:56 am

The launch of Huan Jing-1C was delayed to 2009 :( (thanks to my source for the info!!)...

The most recent informations say that China will make 10 orbital launches this year (contrary to the 15 launches previously announced). So, looking at our Chinese launch schedule there are a few launches that can be deleted.

I've decided to delete one of the Bei Dou-2 launches because some info point that China will probably only launch one of this satellites in 2008.

There are no evidence that China will launch the FSW-23 satellite in this year, so this launch will be included in the 2009 schedule.

I have no informations regarding the Tian Hui-1 and Jian Bing-7 satellites and it's probably that this launches will only take place in 2009.

The two launches shown in italics mean that these two satellites will be launched toghether with pther satellites.

Rui, the information of Phobos-Grunt + YinHuo-1 launching on a Zenit is solid? I thought the launcher was going to be a Soyuz, although mine info is probably outdated.

Hi! The info I have is based on the Russian launch schedule in here (http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=1133&posts=593&mid=246298#M246298). So I think it's a solid information!

Just want to rectify the information about the number of Chinese launches this year. The China Daily website reports in Boom year for space launches (http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2008-02/19/content_6464333.htm), that "the more than 10 on the launch list include the Shenzhou VII spaceship, two environmental satellites, the Fengyun-2 meteorological satellite and a communications satellite for Venezuela."

So it's possible that we see more than 10 orbital launches by China this year.

I used the 2010 date but other sources predict that this flight could take place in 2009. After the successful EVA mission this year we can expect a docking on the next one: a) with the Shenzhou-7 orbital module? b) with Shenzhou-9?

At certain time it was announced that Shenzhou-8 would be a unmanned vehicle that would dock with the also unmanned Shenzhou-9. Later the manned Shenzhou-10 would be launched to dock with the Shenzhou-8 / Shenzhou-9 in orbit.

The post you quoted, published in March,  basically says that Chinasat-9 "should be" launched in late May, early June in order to be operational for the Olympic Games.

Another post on the same site published on April 16, confirms that Chinasat-9 has to be launched in June to be operational by the opening date of the Olympic Games

Concerning APSTAR-6B: APT  indicated in their 2006 annual report, published on April 24, 2007, that they did not exercise their option for the manufacturing of this satellite before the deadline and had no intention to order a new satellite in the near future;  they took into account a loss of 59.9 M yuan of prepayment already made to the contractor.  So I would suggest to suppress APSTAR-6B from the list of satellites to be launched...

China launches in 2008

June - CZ-3B - Xi Chang - XinNuo-3B (SinoSat-3B)

I have some doubts about the existence of Sinosat-3B; the name seems to bounce back and forth between various forums..

The "exclusive domestic satellite operator in China" since 2007, China DBSat , does not mention it. Beyond Chinasat-9,  they mention only as "subsequent resources", Sinosat-4 "ready to launch by the end of 2008" and they also say that they have initiated the programs for Sinosat-5, the replacement for Sinosat-1, and Chinastar-2, the replacement for Chinastar-1.

Sinosat-3 was launched only one year ago and may not necessitate the famous Sinosat-3B as back-up..If anyone has details on Sinosat-3B, please bring it up!
 

Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: hesidu on 05/10/2008 12:57 pm
According the Exhibition CCBN2006, there will be eight communication satellites launched in the 11th five years plan period. Those eight satellites will be operated by 4 major satellite operators -- Sinosat, Chinasat, Apstar, Asiastar.
Those eight satellites are:

Sinosat-2 launched in 2006, failed
Sinosat-3 launched in 2007
Sinosat-3B
Sinosat-4

Chinasat-6B launched in 2007
Chinasat-9

Apstar-6B

Asiasat-5 will be launch by Zenit

And Sinosat-5 was also planned.

Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: input~2 on 05/10/2008 05:11 pm

Thanks Hesidu for this reference.

However the article you mention, "Satellite Highlights#26"  from the imaschina.com web site, is two years old, it is dated May 29, 2006.  Since then, APT has published its 2006 annual report, where they indicated that they cancelled the APSTAR-6B program (see details on page marked 85 of this report- in English  or in Chinese )- actually the incurred loss was 59.9 M HK$ not Yuan as I indicated earlier.
 

Also in this 2006 article Sinosat-3B is indicated as only "planned" to back-up Sinosat-3 with a launch in 2008.

In a more recent article on the same site, "Satellite Highlights#36" , dated February 26, 2008, they do not mention Sinosat-3B any more; they do mention as due for launch in 2008, Chinasat-9, Sinosat-4 and Apstar-6B (they were apparently still not aware of the APT decision to drop that one!)

They also mention for later launch Sinosat-6, Sinosat-5 and Chinastar-2

A press article  at the time of China DBSat last December 25 presentation, mentionned that they had three satellites under construction: Chinasat-9, Sinosat-4 and Sinosat-6 (in that order).

This Sinosat-6 could indeed be a back-up for Sinosat-3, although it is strange that the China DBSat website  does not mention it..

To sum it up, this is my understanding of the Chinese domestic commercial comm. satellites launch plan

  • Apstar-6B has been cancelled
  • There is no Sinosat-3B in 2008
  • Chinasat-9 is in XiChang ready for launch with LM-3B (first window June 22)
  • Sinosat-4 is under construction and could be launched in early 2009 with LM-3B
  • Sinosat-6 (Sinosat-3 back-up?) is under construction (tbc) and could be launched in 2009/2010
  • Sinosat-5 (Sinosat-1 replacement) is planned
  • Chinastar-2 (Chinastar-1 replacement) is planned
  • Asiasat-5 should be launched in 2009 with Zenit-3SLB from Baikonur

According to the Space Calendar (http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/calendar/calendar.html) the launch of SJ-9 Shi Jian-9 will take place on November.

Based on the previous posts I have deleted the Apstar-6B launch and also the Sinosat-3B (Xinnuo-3B) launch.

Any comments are welcome!

(PS - On May 12th there was a strong earthquake on Sichuan province. I wonder if this can affect the scheduled launches from Xi Chang. Until this moment I have no news about any damages to the satellite launch center).

???? - CZ-3B - Xi Chang - ZX-5A ZhongXing-5A (ChinaSat-5A)

It seems to me that Chinasat-5A was first mentionned  during the Zhuhai Air Show in October 2006. On that occasion, Chinasat signed an IOD contract with CAST for a launch on LM-3B "expected in 2009". The satellite was described as a follow-up to Chinasat-6B, to use a DFH-4 platform with 8-10 kW power and 15 years lifetime.

On that same occasion, Sinosat was reported to have signed two IOD contracts for the replacements of Sinosat-1 and Sinosat-3  with CAST.

Since China DBSat, the succesor of Chinasat and Sinosat for civilian domestic comm. satellite operations, does not mention  Chinasat-5A in their "subsequent resources", it could well be slightly delayed...

How about using the short names (JSLC, XSLC, TSLC). That takes up less space (might be useful if you have a launch with a lot of payloads).



Are either of the FY-3A or ZX-9 launches likely to be broadcast on one of the internet TV channels?
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: hesidu on 05/22/2008 01:20 pm
I also suggest using "JSLC,XSLC,TSLC". I think they are the official short names for those launch sites.
This is the launch record on the website of CALT. They use "JSLC,XSLC,TSLC".

Very well, it will be used that way. But how is the correct writing in Chinese of those names?
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: input~2 on 05/22/2008 02:39 pm

I had a preference for XiChang, JiuQuan and TaiYuan.... :(

The article quoted by Hesidu on Chinasat-9 launch also indicates that China DBSat plans to launch only 3 satellites until 2010:

Chinasat-9, Sinosat-4 and Sinosat-6.

So I think you can forget about a Chinasat-5A launch in 2009 as mentionned in your last listing above. (I would move it, at this time, to 2011!)

No, I have no new informations about it.

Just a question to all, do you think that using the JSLC, XSLC and TSLC we would be using a some sort of western designations for the launch sites? I mean, do China really use this designations? Or are they only used for comercial purposes?

Laos' comsat is mentioned as L-Star 1 according to the different websites.

Gunter's Space Page shows that the two L-Star satellites were planned to be launched on Ariane-5 and both sats were cancelled. They were planned to be launched on 1998 and 1999. DirecTV 8 was constructed on the partial built cancelled L-Star 1 satellite.

The source of my information (a Chinese person to which I don't have contact for a few weeks now) didn't provide a desinagtion to the satellite saying only 'a comsat for Laos'.

I have also find this article (http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0BMD/is_133_8/ai_88831705).

In Chinese "XiChang Satellite Launch Center" is composed of 8 characters, if you try to abbreviate that, it would mean something else!!
So in Chinese you would not use acronyms here..

It's not a satellite made by students. The satellited will be found and made by CAST. The satellite will carry out scientific experiments designed by high school students, establish amateur radio and take photos from space. The satellite was named "hope", and will be launched in 2009.

How do you transliterate the word 'hope' from Chinese to English?
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: hesidu on 06/03/2008 05:15 pm
The Chinese name of this satellite is "希望号".
For example,  Mars Lander "Phoenix" will be translated into "凤凰号" in Chinese.
"凤凰" means "Phoenix", "号" is a word usually used in the name of something, but don't have actually meaning.
"希望" means "hope" in English. So I think the name of the satellite -- "希望号", should be translated into "hope".

Is there a holddown period after main engine ignition? That could explain it.
No, The LM series don't have a holddown period. It is just put on the launch pad, and isn't attached to anything. So the rocket will liftoff as soon as the engines generate enough thrust to counter the weight.

And how long do they take to build up thrust?

About 3 seconds.

About 3 seconds.

The discrepancy between the two times appears to be at most 4.070 seconds, but could be as low as 3.071 seconds. That seems fairly consistent with the time between ignition and liftoff, according to your figures.

Well, I wonder what exactly is said in http://www.china-spacenews.com/n435777/n435778/n435783/45302.html about the second CZ-3C launch and the modifications of the launch pad needed for it.

长征三号乙 == CZ-3B, 长征三号丙 == CZ-3C
The article says the pad 2 was modified to launch CZ-3C. And CZ-3B is the second launch on pad 2 after the launch of CZ-3C.

I just noticed this article:
http://www.jta.org/cgi-bin/iowa/breaking/110257.html

Is this HJ-1 with an incorrect date, or has something else been launched today? My guess would be the former (the description of the spacecraft's mission does fit HJ-1), but I don't know.

Nope no new launch, only journalism with a bad knowledge about the subject...

So what would happen after Shenzhou 8 and 9? They could have renderzvous/docking ability then. What's the next step? Manned Moon landing? Space Station? Or both? There could be a 4-year gap before the CZ-5 into service.

Adding some new information about the next launches (from SinoDefence.com (http://www.sinodefence.com/default.asp)).

According to Sinodefence.com the first launch of the new CZ-6 Chang Zheng-6, based on the core stage of the new CZ-5 Chang Zheng-5, will take place on 2010.

China will launch PakSat-1R for Pakistan in 2011.

According to this (http://www.china-spacenews.com/n435777/n435778/n435783/51227.html) (in Chinese) the launch of Shenzhou-8, Shenzhou-9 and Shenzhou-10 will take place in 2011.

According to this forum (http://forums.qrz.com/showthread.php?p=1360576) the launch of XW-1 Xi Wang-1 will take place in June 2009 from Taiyuan by a CZ-2C. Former designation of this satellite was CAS-1

According to this (http://www.ngrguardiannews.com/compulife/article01/indexn2_html?pdate=101208&ptitle=NigComSat,%20Chinese%20firm%20propose%20interim%20satellite) China will built and launch the NigComSat-2 and NigComSat-3 satellites that will replace and backup the lost NigComSat-1. Launch will take place within two years.

China will launch a new remote sensing satellite on December 15.

My understanding is that Sinosat-4 could be launched in 2009-H2.

Otherwise, according to this article (http://www.asiatvro.com/html/200901/Msg18509.htm) (in Chinese) China DBSAT has contracted in November for the launches of Sinosat-5 and Sinosat-6 with CZ-3B in 2011. They had already been ordered from CAST (see my earlier post from 5/12/2008 reply#196 (http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=5060.msg276858#msg276858)).They will use the DFH-4 platform.

BTW, weren't SM(M)S and HJ-1B the same satellite?

As far as I found there were two different projects known as SMMS, both launched by now.

One SMMS (= Stereo Mapping Microsatellite) became Shiyan Weixing 1 made by the Harbin Technology University and launched on 18 Apr 2004.

Another SMMS (= Small Multi-Mission Satellite) is the same thing as Huanjing 1A launched on 6 Sep 2008; it features "a Ka-band communications experimental subsystem which was invested by Thailand and developed by China" [Asia-Pacific Space Outlook, September 2008, p.2].

China plans to launch 3rd ocean survey satellite in 2010 
 
 
www.chinaview.cn  2009-02-18 11:27:14     
 
    BEIJING, Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- China plans to launch a third ocean survey satellite in 2010 to upgrade its capacity for maritime weather forecasting and disaster relief, according to a report in the Science and Technology Daily on Wednesday.

    The newspaper is an official publication of the Ministry of Science and Technology.

    The satellite, Haiyang-2A, an ocean dynamic environmental satellite, will be used to monitor ocean wind fields, sea levels and temperatures, Jiang Xingwei, an official with the National Marine Environment Forecast Center, was quoted as saying.

    China plans to have a system consisting of ocean color remote sensing satellites, ocean dynamic environment satellites and ocean surveillance satellites.

    The color remote sensing satellites (Haiyang-1 series) use infrared remote sensing technology to monitor ocean pollution and topography in shallow waters.

    The dynamic environment satellites (Haiyang-2 series) use microwave remote sensing technology to monitor ocean wind fields and ocean surface temperatures.

    The ocean surveillance satellites (Haiyang-3 series) will have the combined features of the previous two series.

    China started to develop ocean dynamic environment satellite in2007, the newspaper said.

    China launched its first ocean survey satellite, Haiyang-1A, in May 2002. In April 2007, the second ocean survey satellite, Haiyang-1B, was launched. Both were ocean color remote sensing satellites.

It was my error to point the launcher as a CZ-3B and yes according to previous information the VeneSat-2 will be a remote sensing bird made in Venezuela. The information I have is that the launch is schedule for 2013 and I think we can assume it will be orbited by China.

    BEIJING, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) -- China plans to launch an unmanned space module into orbit as early as the end of 2010.

    It is expected to meet with another unmanned spacecraft, Shenzhou-8, which is scheduled to be launched in early 2011. It would be the country's first space docking.

    A spokesman with China's space program said Saturday that scientists on the ground would control the space docking between the orbiter and the unmanned spaceship.

2011-2012 陆续发射 神舟八号、神舟九号、神舟十号 系列飞船
(From 2011 to 2012, Shenzhou-8, Shenzhou-9 and Shenzhou-10 will be launched. )
As far as I know, SZ-8 and SZ-9 are unmanned while SZ-10 will be manned. And all of the three Shenzhou spacecraft will be docked with the Tiangong-1.

Shenzhou 9 will be manned, and is currently scheduled for October 2011.

Accorting to Satellites will help predict disasters (http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-03/31/content_11103969.htm) the launch of the first Huan Jing radar satellite will only take place next year.

@Satori,
Since the next Beidou-2 launch in April will be for a geostationary satellite, the name, Compass-M2, in your list does not seem appropriate.
The final constellation in 2015 will include 5 GEO and 30 MEO satellites.

@Satori,
Thanks for taking into account my remark. Now the spokesman for the Xichang satellite launch center has indicated today that the launch on Wednesday will be the second for the Beidou-2 constellation after the launch [of Compass-M1] on April 14, 2007.
So a tentative name for the new satellite could be Compass-G1 or Beidou-2-G1
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: input~2 on 04/12/2009 08:03 pm
According to the Beijing Morning Post (http://news.163.com/09/0413/01/56OBA3PI0001124J.html) dated April 13, the Beidou-2 constellation which will eventually be composed of 35 satellites will be set up in two phases:
-a regional Asia-Pacific system consisting of 12 Beidou-2 satellites to be launched in 2009 and around 2010
- a worldwide system, five years later, with the launch of 18 additional spacecraft
The Beidou-2 handset will also have a short message (~100 Chinese characters) uplink capability.

For the Beidou launch, only 03 seconds are visible in videos, followed by something like .600 ...

Hi Liss!

As the online translators only provide a full translation of the page to english, can you please give us an accurate translation of the schedule on that page?

Thanks!

Xinhua said on February 18, 2009 that the first satellite of the new Haiyang-2 series would be launched in 2010 so I didn't mention it on the 2009 schedule.

Post by: Liss on 04/25/2009 07:29 pm
The April 13 version of the schedule on the Chinese forum lists a joint launch of HJ-1C and Xiwang from Taiyuan by CZ-2C, probably in August.
Also, Sinosat-4 (Xichang, CZ-3B) is listed.
Yaogan Weixing-7 is also listed from Taiyuan by CZ-4B, but the list gives the same vehicle for YG-6 to be launched in 10 days by CZ-2C, so I don't think this is entirely reliable.
Fengniao-1 (蜂鸟一号) is described as a possible piggyback intended for what I cannot understand (for fans: 蜂鸟一号,来头可不小,属于子母星,母星释放子星,然后组成近地轨道小卫星编队飞行,对地观测.军民用价值意义都比较大).
Also Tianxun-1 (天巡一号) is a piggyback.
The Chinese are extremely serious about the Earthquake electromagnetic monitor satellite which has been described in details in the APSCO magazine.
The schedule does not include SJ-9, the Lao satellite, a FSW, the Jishu Shiyan-1 and even the Tianhui-1.

I guess Fengniao-1 is Hummersat (see http://directory.eoportal.org/presentations/6146/15541.html).

You have right, input~2. It seams that the translation into "Hummersat" which was used by the source, is wrong and should be substituted by hummingbird.

According to this Chinese space forum (http://www.9ifly.cn/sub/thread-696-1-1.html) the launch of XW-1 Xi Wang-1 will only take place in 2010 as well as the launch of SJ-10 Shi Jian-10 and ZY-3 Zi Yuan-3.

Apparentely the launch of Fobus-Grunt will take place in October this year, so I'm also updating the information abou the launch of YH-1 YinHuo-1.

According to the above forum, the launch of the SJ-9 Shi Jian-9 satellite will probably take place in June.

The 9ifly space forum post on HaiYang launches (dated July 19) was apparently reproduced from this site (http://www.takungpao.com/news/09/07/19/nanhai01-1114184.htm) where the launch of HY-2 is said to be planned for this year.

Another poster in the same forum on the same date declares: "the launches of Beidou and HuanJing-1C are postponed to next year, the Indonesia satellite [Palapa-D1] will be the next launch."

I had already read about this delays. They look very strange after all the news about the BeiDou deployment and they could mean some kind of problem with the system. Once gain I think that we have to wait and see what China will make in the next few months.

Yes, I had seen that; the poster also said it could still be a CZ-3C which would imply a GEO sat (ie Compass-G3).

According to a Chinese forum, three Chinese domestic satellites have suffered major failures this year (Compass-G2 is seemingly one of them); consequently the upcoming  Beidou-2-follow-ups launches have been delayed.

Edit: another of the three failures involves Beidou-1D

Any idea which other satellites have failed, and whether the failures have resulted in a loss of mission?

Can you provide a link to the post please.

BeiDou-1D was not deorbited. I supose you mean taken out of service.
Right, AFAICS, its apogee has always been greater than 36200 km.
In February its orbit was raised and it started drifting fast.
In late June, its still low perigee was further raised 200 km.

As far as I can trace it, the "around August 20" date for Palapa-D1 launch seems to originate in a Chinese stamp collector forum after Indosat had said "end of August". It could well be just the poster's own interpretation of "end of August"....

Palapa D1: "Launch will be held on 30 August 2009 or 31, depending on weather conditions."

According to this Chinese space forum (http://www.9ifly.cn/sub/thread-696-1-1.html) the launch of TH-1 Tian Hui-1 will probably take place in December.

Palapa-D1 launch will take place on August 31.

So, at this time what do you think are the implications for the Chinese launch schedule for 2009? On the 9ifly forum someone said that this launch would mark the beggining of an intense launch period for China. What to expect?
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: Satori on 09/10/2009 08:25 am
According to this China Great Wall Industry press-release (http://www.cgwic.com/news/2009/0909_New_Contract.html), China will launch a telecommunications satellite using a Chang Zheng-3B from Xichang Satellite Launch Center (XSLC) in 2012. The customer is from the Indian Ocean region.

Probably some of the launches using the CZ-3A, CZ-3B and CZ-3C are already delayed to 2010 because of the problems with the upper stage on the Palapa-D launch. Without further notice or other news I will have the 'NET December' note in all those launches.

Paksat 1R.
PakSat 1R (http://www.cgwic.com/In-OrbitDelivery/CommunicationsSatellite/Program/PakSat-1R.html), will be delivered to SUPARCO in mid 2011.
 So,I don't think it is PakSat-1R.

Paksat 1R.

The last I hear about PakSat-1R was that it would be launched on August 2011. Also, the launch of PakSat-1R is already known so why hasn't CGWIC has announced its costumer on the press-release? There are rumors that this can be a iranian satellite.

The Board of Inquiry set up to investigate the root of the Palapa-D's CZ-3B underperformance plans to deliver its conclusions in mid-November.
Consequently launches of CZ-3B (and also CZ-3A, CZ-3C using the same YF-75 upper stage engine) may resume NET end November or December.

Suparco (http://www.suparco.gov.pk/pages/paksat1r.asp?satlinksid=1) itself mentions a launch at end 2011; also at the time of the contract signature in 2008, a 2011 launch date was mentionned..
So a 2012 launch date for Paksat-1R is the most probable.

Hi Liss!

Well, not a proven fact and as you said before the information is based on "rumors and wild guesses" from the 9ifly.cn Chinese Space Forum. The same people there was also expecting a launch this Sunday.

Based on the knowledge about the previous YaoGan Weixing launches, its obvious that the launch didn't take place today. But taking into account the strong rumours on the forum I think we should expect a launch in the next days... If that launch will be a YaoGan Weixing vehicle is another question.

A official commemorative card, which was issued by the Xian Satellite Launch Center, seams to reveal, that TianXun-1 was launched as part of the Nov 5th 2008 mission from JSLC. The inscription within the launch patch is "TianXun-1 Satellite Controll Commemoration" and the card was issued (date of postmark) on Nov 5th 2008.

The following satellites will possibly be launched as piggyback payloads

?? - ?? - ?? - Tian Xun Zhe-1 (Tian Xun-1)


A official commemorative card, which was issued by the Xian Satellite Launch Center, seams to reveal, that TianXun-1 was launched as part of the Nov 5th 2008 mission from JSLC. The inscription within the launch patch is "TianXun-1 Satellite Controll Commemoration" and the card was issued (date of postmark) on Nov 5th 2008. No indication if TianXun-1 was a separate payload or another designation for Shiyan-3 or CX-1(02).


Some time ago someone sent me this photo as being the TianXun satellite. Does this help?

Yes it helps. Your photo shows the TianXún-1 satellite which is developed by Nanjing University and planned indeed for a 2010 piggyback launch. The Chinese translation is "天巡一号" which means "Day Patrol-1". The chinese inscription at the Xian cover is "天讯一号" means "Rapid Day-1" and in Chinese TianXůn-1 (another pronunciation!).

According to the last rumor, there could be a launch during the first half of November.

Edit on Nov 4 Yaogan-7 launch now expected during the last third of November.

I supose that this rumor comes from the usual chinese source. But do they specifically say that it will be the YaoGan-7 launch?

From the usual source and also others, the launch of Tianhui-1 (aka Ziyuan-3, mass 2630 kg) on CZ-4B from Taiyuan is now expected for 2011.

Xiwang-1 has a mass of 35 kg and is intended for an SSO orbit at 499km, it should be launched as co-passenger of a main SSO mission (could it be Yaogan-7 ?)

Thanks for that. I was in doubt about the launch date of TH-1 but I had already read that this mission was merged with ZY-3.

Some months ago there were some rumors that the launch of XW-1 was scheduled to take place with HJ-1C (last informations said that HJ-1C will be launched  next year).

The next launch (within a week?) will be a military mission. Fuelling as already began.

The recent CAST information refers to an article on Xiwang-1 dated September 10. It could well be that the mentionned launch date of end 2009 was derived from the then expected Huanjing-1C launch date.
I tend to think that it is now delayed to 2010 together with HJ-1C.

According to our colleagues from the 9ifly forum we can expect a Beidou-2G launch in December. There are also rumors of a launch from Jiuquan and another launch from Taiyuan. Some of these rumors refer to a YaoGan Weixing launch. We know that on the NK forum a person said that the next YG launch would only take place next year, so we should wait to see.

My understanding is that a colleague from the usual source notes that the minimum turnaround time at Jiuquan between a CZ-2C and a CZ-2D launch is 27 days (which happened in 2005, with CZ-2C on Aug 2 and CZ-2D on Aug 29 that year), and since the last CZ-2C in Jiuquan occurred on Nov 12, 2009, this leads him to predict a new potential launch with CZ-2D not earlier than December 9...

The name should rather be "Compass-G3" since "Compass-M1" and Compass-G2" have already been launched..

My guess is, that the numbering of the Compass-designation is related to the intended orbital-slot and not to the launch row. G1 would mean the first slot of the geostationary system, M1 the first slot of the 12-hours system.

Hi Rui,
thanks for the update. One little remark - ST-1B (ShenTong 1B) and ZX-20(2) (ZhongXing-20(2)) are the same. If ST-1B is based on the DFH-3 plattform then CZ-3A is the most likely launcher.

Perhaps I am being a little too pedantic here, but I think that it is incorrect to refer to "recoverable Moon rovers".

I believe that the Chinese are planning to use small rovers to collect samples which will then be transferred to an Earth return vehicle, while the rovers themselves remain on the Moon.   The rovers could possibly continue to operate after the ascent stage has headed back to Earth.

Maybe like the Apollo LRVs, the Chinese rovers could return images of the ascent stage lift-off?

Hi Phillip!

I have used the People's Daily news China's recoverable moon rover expected in 2017 (http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/90001/90776/90881/6371088.html) as a source for this entry on the schedule. I also find the idea a little strange and that mission would indeed be a great acomplishment for China. So I will instead say "'recoverable' Moon rovers".

No, they can't.

And it looks like weather is not cooperating at this time for launch from Jiuquan.

Well, the last launch for which such code has been known was 18 Nov 2004 with Shiyan Weixing-2. Bridging the gap for Xichang launches and excluding foreign-related ones, I presume:

There were some rumors about a launch from Jiuquan before the end of the Chinese year. I don't know if these rumors had anything to do with the missile defence test or if there are any preparations for launch at Jiuquan.

Yaogan-9 to be launched "in the coming days" with CZ-4C from Jiuquan.
(source (http://news.xinhuanet.com/english2010/sci/2010-03/04/c_13196762.htm))

From the usual source, launch could take place as soon as to-morrow, March 5.
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: input~2 on 03/04/2010 11:27 am
During 2010, China intends to carry out 15 CZ launches, including 8 from the CZ-3A/3B/3C series (source (http://news.163.com/10/0304/10/60U3N4OD000146BC.html)) (one was already launched on January 16).

So there would be 7 CZ-3A/3B/3C launches still to come in 2010.
Taking into account Chang'e-2 on CZ-3C, Sinosat-6 on CZ-3B and a FY on CZ-3A, this would leave a maximum of 4 Compass (GEO and/or MEO) launches for the rest of the year.

Chang'e-3 now planned "around 2013" (source (http://news.xinhuanet.com/politics/2010-03/10/content_13139349.htm)).
A lunar soft landing and a lunar rover are projected.

Thanks to the friends of 9ifly here are some recent launch schedule updates.

Spacecraft/Year/source

FY-4 / first launch 2014 / http://www.cma.gov.cn/qxxw/xw/201004/t20100402_63872.html
HY-2 / first launch after April  2011 / http://www.nsoas.gov.cn/new/channel/detail.asp?Content_id=214
FAST / not earlier than 2011 / http://events.eoportal.org/presentations/10001168/10002440.html , http://www.lr.tudelft.nl/live/pagina.jsp?id=da8b4974-e3ef-480d-ab04-76c7ae46bba0
Tsinghua-2 / 2010 / http://www.ruimtevaart-nvr.nl/info/docs/FAST%20Microsatellite%20Mission,%20Jian%20Guo,%20TU%20Delft.pdf

FAST is a Dutch-Chinese dual microsat project, which is to be launched piggyback (likely from TSLC.)
Probably Tsinghua-2 is another designation for the  Beijing-2 satellite project, which was first announced in 2009.

Apstar-7B is primarily a back-up for Apstar-7 in case of launch failure. In case of success, China Satcom will become the owner of 7B and will launch it later.

Apstar-7 is now planned for launch in 2012-H1 rather than 2012-Q1

Compass-M1 and Compass-G2 have already been launched before 2010

1) January, Xichang, CZ-3C, Beidou-2 GEO#1 (Compass-G1)
2) Before July, Xichang, CZ-3B, Beidou-2 MEOs, dual launch (Compass-M2/M3)

6) Before the end of the year, Xichang, CZ-3A, Beidou-2 Inclined Geo#1 (Compass-IGS1)

While, the number of launches before July now seems to be optimistic, the overall plan is worth considering.
Notice in particular the MEOs dual launches using CZ-3B.

According to this  source (http://www.spacechina.com/english/ex_details.shtml?recno=60670) the contract for Paksat 1R was signed October 15, 2008. Very likely the satellite contract of September 8, 2009 cited above refers to another satellite.

There seems to be some confusion in the naming of the China Satcom satellites (BTW, China Satcom has taken over from Chinastar, Sinosat and China DBSat operations).
According to China Satcom website and other sources here is a tentative list of their present and future satellites:

Present satellites
Chinasat-5C (http://www.chinasatcom.com/satellite.asp?theName=%D6%D0%D0%C75C&id=3) is the new name of Sinosat-3 at 125°E
Chinasat-5B (http://www.chinasatcom.com/satellite.asp?theName=%D6%D0%D0%C75B&id=2) is the new name of Sinosat-1 at 110.5°E
Chinasat-5A (http://www.chinasatcom.com/satellite.asp?theName=%D6%D0%D0%C75A&id=1) is the new name of Chinastar-1 at 87.5°E
Chinasat-6B (http://www.chinasatcom.com/satellite.asp?theName=%D6%D0%D0%C76B&id=4) is at 115.5°E
Chinasat-9 (http://www.chinasatcom.com/satellite.asp?theName=%D6%D0%D0%C79%BA%C5&id=5) is at 92.2°E

Future satellites
Chinasat-6A (http://www.chinasatcom.com/satellite.asp?theName=%BA%F3%D0%F8%CE%C0%D0%C7%D7%CA%D4%B4&id=10) (previously known as Sinosat-6), based on DFH-4 platform, is planned to be launched into 125°E in Q3-2010
Chinasat-10 (http://www.chinasatcom.com/satellite.asp?theName=%BA%F3%D0%F8%CE%C0%D0%C7%D7%CA%D4%B4&id=10) (previously known as Sinosat-5), based on DFH-4 platform, is planned to be launched into 110.5°E in Q2-2011
Chinasat-9A (http://www.chinasatcom.com/satellite.asp?theName=%BA%F3%D0%F8%CE%C0%D0%C7%D7%CA%D4%B4&id=10) (previously known as Sinosat-4), based on DFH-4 platform, is planned to be launched into 92.2°E in Q3-2012
Chinasat-12 (http://www.chinasatcom.com/satellite.asp?theName=%BA%F3%D0%F8%CE%C0%D0%C7%D7%CA%D4%B4&id=10) is planned to be launched into 87.5°E (tentatively in 2013). It could be Apstar-7B, a SB4000, if Apstar-7 launch is successful.

Rui, you may consider updating your list accordingly.

Igor, the poster you quote got a quick strong denial (see second reply) :
根本不是重新发射一颗卫星,而是鑫诺三号卫星名称改了,别误导大家
which I translate as:
"no way!, relaunch one satellite?, this corresponds to Sinosat-3 name change, do not mislead everyone!!"

Yes, the name has changed!
According to a recent China Satcom leaflet, they had, as of June 2010, 6 satellites under construction:
- Chinasat-6A (previously known as Sinosat-6)
- Chinasat-10 (previously known as Sinosat-5)
- Chinasat-9A (previously known as Sinosat-4)
- Apstar-7
- Apstar-7B
and ...
- Chinasat-11 which "will use a new location or serve as a back-up for other in-orbit satellites"
So we can assume that this Chinasat-11 is the previous Sinosat-7!

Rui, you may consider updating your list, changing Xinnuo-7 to Chinasat-11 in 2014

A report from Tianlin (http://news.ngzb.com.cn/staticpages/20100806/newgx4c5b44a2-2078845.shtml) (Guangxi province), located in Compass-I1 launcher debris drop zone, indicates that two other Beidou-2 launches will drop debris in the same area in December 2010 and April 2011.
Presumably this could mean a Compass-I2 launch next December and a Compass-I3 launch next April.

This year, after August, 3 more Beidou-2 satellites are planned to be launched.
Source#1 (http://news.sina.com.cn/o/2010-07-15/024417806591s.shtml) and Source#2 (http://news.xinhuanet.com/tech/2010-07/14/c_12334183.htm)
This would result in a total of 5 Beidou-2 spacecraft launched in 2010.
With a more precise translation, changing "after August" for "starting from August", we should still expect 2 Beidou-2 launches in 2010. This is in line with Rui's revised schedule as of August 6..
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: input~2 on 08/07/2010 08:18 am
The launch plan for Beidou-2 as presented by the China Satellite Navigation Office at a satellite navigation conference in March in Munich  was as follows:
Phase II (regional coverage), achieved "around 2012", with 5 GEOs, 5 IGSOs and 4 MEOs
Phase III (global coverage), achieved "before 2020", with 5 GEOs, 3 IGSOs and 27 MEOs.

According to the director of China National Weather Satellite Center, 14 weather satellites are planned to be launched during the next decade.
The launch of Fengyun-3B is confirmed "before the end of 2010".
Fengyun-4 launch would take place "after 2015".

 Having looked at the launch schedule again; I notice the BeiDou MEO are flying next year after the IGS. It did seem odd to have both MEO and IGS; but the IGS are just a stepping stone from GSO to inclined providing latitude than MEO? So the IGS will follow the same groundtrack? They are similiar to Indian IRNSS?

A Xinhua report (http://news.xinhuanet.com/mil/2010-08/26/content_14076724.htm), dated March 4, mentionned that, according to CALT, 15 launches would take place in 2010. As of August 30, 7 launches have been performed, so only 8 would remain.

According to CGWIC, there would be three CZ-3B launches in 2011 for  foreign customers, namely Eutelsat W3C, Paksat-1R (end 2011 according to Suparco website) and Nigcomsat-1R.

AFAIU,  the "Communications Satellite" launch in 2012 could be removed from the List and  Nigcomsat-3 as well as Venesat-2 launches would take place well beyond  2015...

No trace of it on CGWIC webpage for in-orbit delivery:

"In China, the scale of space activity right now is most impressive. The China Great Wall Industry Corporation  which has the sole rights to provide satellites for the government says it has 100 contracts for the next five years, meaning it will be launching something like 20 rockets a year. "

If true this would be a significant ramp up.

Some sources have pointed that the beginning of October is the possible launch date for Chang'e-2. We expect the launch of Shen Tong-1B at the end of September.

Is China capable of two launches from Xi Chang in such a short time?

ST-1B can go from either pad, Chang'e-2 will have to go from LA-2. So as long as ST-1B uses LA-3, it should not be an issue.

Based on previous launches, the shortest turnaround for two launches from Xichang was 18 days between Nigcomsat-1 (from LA-2) and SinoSat-3 (from LA-3) in 2007. Shortest turnaround for two launches from LA-2 was 30 days, back in 1995.

The Deputy Chief Designer Wang Ling said recently that there are 9 launches planned for Xi Chang this year and 11 for 2011.

We already have 5 lauches this year with 3 more planned until the year's end, so we are missing 1 launch? Any ideas? Are we sure TL-2 Tian Lian-2 was delayed to 2011?

From an official source from within Chang'e-2' CZ-3C boosters drop zone, the last dropping of (CZ-3C) boosters due to a Xichang launch for this year is expected on October 30.
This means that a CZ-3C launch (Compass-G4?) is expected on October 30.
He also indicated that next year there will be 5 or 6 boosters droppings  (i.e. 5 or 6 CZ-3C launches from Xichang in 2011).

Some interesting comments about this: I supose we are only talking about the CZ-3C boosters, but if this is not the case then it means that the scheduled was altered substantially. If this was the case, then the 9 launches scheduled for this year from Xi Chang will not be accomplished.

We are only talking about CZ-3C, since each type of rocket has its specific drop zones

The person reponsible for CZ-3A series (ie. CZ-3A/3B/3C) launches just said that he has still 3 launches [of CZ-3A series] to be performed before the end of the year.
(source (http://whb.news365.com.cn/jjl/201010/t20101025_2859866.htm))
If we add FY-3B on a CZ-4C, this confirms that 4 CZ launches are expected before the end of the year.

Rui, according to a recent article in English "China seeks bigger share of global satellite market", you may want to remove from your launch list:  Nigcomsat-2, "communications satellite" (2012), Tupac Katari, Nigcomsat-3 (2013) and Nigcomsat-3 (2015)

I think that what was signed with Nigeria and Bolivia were preliminary launch agreements and maybe China is still in talks for the launch of those satellites. I agree that that launch dates for Nigcomsat-2, Nigcomsat-3 and Tupac Katari have to be changed, But I don't think they should be tajen out of the schedule. Let's just wait for more information about these contracts.

So this earlier interpretation was close enough! ;)
From an official source from within Chang'e-2' CZ-3C boosters drop zone, the last dropping of (CZ-3C) boosters due to a Xichang launch for this year is expected on October 30.
This means that a CZ-3C launch (Compass-G4?) is expected on October 30.

In your China launch schedule satellite NigComSat-3 are mentioned twice: in 2013 and 2015 years. What is correctly?

Ah! Thanks for pointing that out! I think the 2015 date is more likely.

Now that Compass-G4 has been launched on October 31 (UTC), due to the   minimum turnaround time between two launches at XSLC recalled in my earlier post (Reply#539) (http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=5060.msg649285#msg649285), I'll predict  that Zhongxing-20A will be launched on November 30 (UTC)  and Compass-I2  on December 30 (UTC). ;)

One of my Beijing friends with good connections to Aerospace City told me that the next Beidou launch is planned for Nov 20. I don't know how reliable this information is.

Tiangong 1 is a small laboratory module, with roughly the same internal volume as a compact van. The spacecraft will launch in the first half of 2011, and will spend a few months flying solo.

In late 2011, the Shenzhou 8 spacecraft will be launched.

In 2012, Shenzhou 9 will be launched.

Later in 2012, or possibly 2013, Shenzhou 10 will be launched to Tiangong 1.

Tiangong 2 will probably launch in 2013 or 2014.

Tiangong 3 will probably fly around 2016.

The CALT vice-president, on November 14, said that there will be a CZ-3A launch by the end of this year which will make it the 8-th CZ-3A (series?) launch for this year.
This will imply that there will still be 2 CZ-3A launches before the end of the year (should be ZX-20A and Compass-I2)

 I've run this through online translators and I can't find that reference; they indicate 21 days for all preparatory work [Babelfish] or pre-launch preparations [Google]; 24 days overall.

AFAIU, the sentence  据了解,目前长三甲系列火箭可以24天左右、最短21天完成发射前的所有准备工作 reads:
"it is understood that  currently, for the CZ-3A series rockets, all preparatory tasks before  launch can be completed in about 24 days, the shortest period being 21  days"

Along the same line, the draft 2011 LM-3A series user's manual has this:
Quote from:  draft 2011 LM-3A series user's manual
The launch vehicle is subject to comprehensive tests and checkouts at the launch vehicle manufacturing facility before shipment to the launch site, which allows the launch vehicle processing at the launch site to be streamlined for completion in approximately 24 days.

An example to illustrate the potential problems with Google automatic translation from Chinese.
This sentence, extracted from the 9ifly forum,
远望3号回厂维修,远望6号12月25日才回港,看来春节前西昌不会发射了。
is translated by Google as:
"Yuan Wang 3, back to the shop for maintenance, Yuan Wang 6, December 25  before returning to Hong Kong, it appears that before the Spring  Festival will launch in Xichang."
So you would get the impression that there will be a launch from Xichang before the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year on Feb 3, 2011).
In reality, it means the opposite:
"Yuan Wang 3 [the TT&C ship] returning to its maintenance dock, Yuan Wang 6 [a second TTC ship] just back in Hong-Kong on December 25, it seems unlikely that there will be a launch from Xichang before the Spring Festival"

Edit: Something strange: if the period (。or .) is removed, the same sentence is translated by Google in a different way:
"Yuan Wang 3, back to the shop for maintenance, Yuan Wang 6, December 25 before returning to Hong Kong, it seems that  New Year  will not be  launched  before the  Xichang"

CBERS-2C, what is it?

Since it first mentioned on the philatelic forum, I thought that this designation was a strange one for this satellite. The next sino-brazilian mission is expected on April 2012, so where did this satellite come from?

I think that there is some confusion on the designations. As you know, the CBERS series has the ZY-1 Zi Yuan-1 designation:

CBERS-1 = ZY-1A
CBERS-2 = ZY-1B
CBERS-2B = ZY-1B2
CBERS-3 = ZY-1C
CBERS-4 = ZY-1D

The ZY-2 Zi Yuan-2 are military in nature using the ZY-1 platform (ZY-2A, ZY-2B and ZY-2C).

China has announced that it will launch the next ZY series in 2011 (ZY-3A) using the same technology developed for the YG YaoGan Weixing remote sensing (military) series.

So, I believe that China will also launch other satellite that was wrongly named CBERS-2C. Other explanatian is that this satellite is the one that will be launch at year's end, that is ZY-3.

On the brazilian INPE (Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais - National Institute of Space Research) there is no mention of CBERS-2C.

This news http://istock.jrj.com.cn/article,600118,3977808.html is reporting a chinese launch on March 20 to put a maritime satellite in to orbit. News is probably innacurate as recent news point that the first chinese launch in 2011 will be the launch of BeiDou IGSO-3 in April.

According to China Satcom website, Chinasat-11 launch is now planned for 2012-Q4 and a new Chinasat-13 is planned for 2013-Q3
Title: Re: Chinese launch schedule
Post by: input~2 on 04/14/2011 05:11 am
A few facts to try to forecast the remaining Compass-2 launches in 2011:

- A total of 3 CZ-3A launches in 2011 for inclined orbit satellites, MEO or IGSO, was announced by an official in Dec 2010
- One of them (I3) has already been launched on April 9
- A total of 4 satellites to be launched in 2011 was announced during the Munich satnav conference in March 2011
-   The constellation was described as to be composed of 5 GEO, 5 IGSO and  4  MEO in 2012 at the Munich satnav conference in March 2010

So the remaining launches for 2011 could be:
- 2 MEOs: M2 and M3 on 2 CZ-3A
- 1 GEO: G5 on CZ-3C

Edit (April 18): the regional constellation in 2012 was described as 5 GEO, 5 IGSO and 4 MEO.

More on the subject of the expected number of Compass launches in 2011 and 2012:

A recent article (http://www.spacechina.com/xwzx_zyxw_Details.shtml?recno=74847) published on the CASC website sheds some light on this matter.

The manager of the China satellite navigation system office indicates that, with the launch of IGSO3, a "3+3" constellation has been achieved.
(AFAIU, "3+3" refers to the current operational satellites, i.e. GEO1, GEO3, GEO4 + IGSO1,IGSO2, IGSO3, since GEO2 and M1 are not considered operational)
Quote from the article: "This year and next year, 8 Compass satellites will gradually be launched to achieve a "5+5+4" constellation, from the "3+3" basis."
This confirms the intention to have 5 GEOs +5 IGSOs + 4 MEOs, i.e. 14 operational satellites, at end 2012.

The remaining 8 satellites to be launched until end 2012 would then be:
GEO5, GEO6, IGSO4, IGSO5, M2, M3, M4 and M5

If  GEO5, M2 and M3 are to be launched until end 2011, there would then be 5 launches in 2012:
GEO6, IGSO4, IGSO5, M4 and M5

According to http://www.zarya.info/Calendar.php (http://www.zarya.info/Calendar.php), launch date is June 19.
Bob Christy, the webmaster of the zarya.info website, could have taken that date from us, since June 19 1600GMT corresponds to June 20 00:00 local time in XSLC and his list does not indicate time spans for launches.

The original Chinese rumor mentionned a launch "during the last third of June".

If this launch takes place and if they launch a Compass-M with the expected launch of ZhongXing-10 on the last days of June, then we can expect a delay on the Tian Lian-1B launch. This can explain the delay on Tiangong-1 / Shenzhou-8, or be a result of the delay of Tiangong-1 / Shenzhou-8.

Or they simply mistaken the use of a CZ-3A and this can be the Tian Lian-1B launch...

According to this source (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:DDX2p9IXd34J:www2.le.ac) the launch of the joint French-Chinese SVOM satellite is now planned for 2016.

I han't found any information regarding the launcher for this mission? Any idea?

I have also no information regarding the launcher. According to this   presentation  (http://www.star.le.ac.uk/conf50/talks/S07_1720_Olivier_Godet.pdf) a LEO orbit (625-650 km) with an inclination of ~30° is intended. Further on SVOM is designed as a microsat with a weight of about 100kg. CZ-6 from the new Hainan launch complex would be possible.

If the first launch takes place on June 20 LT, the second could occur around July 14 LT.
If this second launch takes place after July 20 LT, it  would be more difficult to keep the August 14 target date for Paksat-1R launch..

December (or early 2012) - CZ-2C (?) - TSLC (?) - Gokturk-2
Launcher could also be CZ-2D from JSLC as for VRSS-1 (with a similar launch price).

I think that Gokturk-2 will operate in polar orbit. It it possible to get there with a CZ-2D from Jiuquan?

It is possible - see TH-1.

CZ-2D from Jiuquan was my first choice but, yes I didnt remember TH-1. Yeap, thats an option.

Maybe Gokturk 2 will be lanched as a secondary payload by launch:

2011 12.   Huan Jing 1C   Chang Zheng CZ-2C   500   RCH   Gokturk 2                                  210         TUR   
from TYI, because the mass of Gokturk 2 is only about 200 kg

The mass could be higher: see this post (http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=25474.msg755878#msg755878) in the dedicated Gokturk-2 launch thread

According to this source (http://www.vanguardngr.com/2011/06/builders-scramble-for-nigerias-second-satellite-contract/), Nigcomsat-1R launch is planned in 2011-Q4 (some Chinese unofficial sources put it in December).
It is also said that Nigcomsat-2 and Nigcomsat-3 have not yet been contracted and could potentially be contracted from a non-Chinese manufacturer.

Rumors of a possible launch from Xi Chang on the last ten days of July, probably BeiDou-2 'Compass-M2'.
If the minimum turnaround time between 2 launches at XSLC is 21 days as  previously stated (and possibly demonstrated with ZX-10/TL-1B), it seems difficult to have a launch at end of July with TL-1B launch later  to-day and Paksat-1R planned for August 14..

Shorter turnaround times might be possible when both pads (LC-2 and LC-3) are used.

TL-1B and Paksat-1R require the use of LC-2 due to the LM-3B or 3C launch vehicles, but BeiDou-2 'Compass-M2' will use a LM-3A and can launch from LC-3.

The launches of Nigcomsat-1 (from LC-2) and Xinnuo-3 (from LC-3) in 2007 were only 18 days appart.

If the same turnaround time is achieved at JSLC for SJ-11-4 / SJ-11-2 as for SJ-11-2/ SJ-11-3, ie 23 days, SJ-11-4 could be launched around August 21.

That would be the fastest constellation deployment in Chinese space history: unless there are 5, 6, 7, 8 ............... still to come to expland the constellation beyond four orbital planes, of course.

Apparently it is the same region for the SJ-11-02/03 launches.

So... SJ-11-04 might be launching tomorrow at ~0930 UTC! No official announcements yet though...

Don't worry Chris. According to a press release by CALT posted on August 15 (http://www.9ifly.cn/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=2187&pid=144468), the "battle of launches for the remaining parts of the year" has begun, at the frequency of one every ten days. Since the Chinese are aiming for 20 launches this year, with 12 still to go, they will have to do better than that to reach the intended target.
So yeah, the Chinese are crazy. But they have enough missions and payloads to act crazy, unlike the Americans...  ;D

At its peak in the 1980s, the Soviet Union was having 90-100 launches per year.   Much more than the rest of the world put together.

The CZ-2C failure may have completely busted the launch schedule for the remaining months of 2011: A certain member on the 9ifly aerospace forum said he has a friend working at the tracking station at Weinan (in Shannxi province), who told him that the launch of Tiangong-1 has been put off until NET October. Another member reported that China's return to flight would used the CZ-2D (perhaps with Shiyan Weixing-4?). Note that these are merely rumors and should be taken with a pinch of salt...

According to a travel agency website (http://liangshan.travel.mapbar.com/Ticket-7845.html) promoting visits to XSLC
Quote
9月中旬景区将会有一次卫星发射,欢迎游客届时参观
which translates as
 "in mid-September there will be a satellite launch, visitors are welcomed"

In fact, launch should take place between September 13 and September 18 (local time) according to the dates available for ticket booking.

Contract signed for the in-orbit delivery of the Belarus satellite, to be launched by CZ-3B in 2014-Q1
(source (http://news.xinhuanet.com/2011-09/19/c_122051248.htm) in Chinese)

It will use a DFH-4 platform to carry 40 transponders.

Post by: Phillip Clark on 09/18/2011 05:13 pm
With the successful launch of ZX-1A today, I assume and hope that this will open to doors for launching the satellites delayed by the SJ-11-4 failure.

Of course, priority will be given to Tiangong 1, but it will be interesting to see what else goes up in the next few weeks.   SJ-11-5 perhaps if they have a spare one hanging about? :-)

According to interfax.by, the official name of the future Belarus communications satellite is "BELARUS SAT 1"
http://www.interfax.by/news/belarus/98683 (http://www.interfax.by/news/belarus/98683)
and it will indeed be launched by CZ-3B/E

The launch of Tiangong-1 has slipped to September 29 due to bad weather. Launch window is 13:20 -13:30 UTC.

Go Taikonauts! is reporting the launch date of Shenzhou 10 with one female taikonaut as specifically 1 November 2012.

I can't see that Go Taikonauts says that at all. There is no mention of the date you quote, just the usual 'by the end of next year', which has been the situation for some time as far as SZ-10 is concerned.

http://go-taikonauts.com/en/

Whilst they may have nominally assigned crews to SZ-9 and SZ-10 there are surely several demanding hurdles to be cleared before they begin to announce launch dates.

It was in a Twitter message. Perhaps they are confusing the Shenzhou 8 launch which seems to be official now for 1 November 2011.

I can see that 'Tweet' now......but it still seems unlikely to me. Yes, I agree that they are probably mixing up the SZ-8 date for 2011 and the approximate timeframe for SZ-10. Maybe Chen Lan could clarify at some point.

Philatelic enveloppes for next launch from Xichang at early October are in preparation (http://htjyw.uueasy.com/read-htm-tid-26284.html). Usualy it takes about 2 weeks from this announcement to the real launch date.

This should be the W3C launch or a new Compass sat.

That would be Apstar 7 and Apstar 7B / Chinasat 12 (http://space.skyrocket.de/doc_sdat/apstar-7.htm).

Looks like the Chinese are still clinging to the initial plan of 21 orbital launches this year.... (http://www.9ifly.cn/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=2187&pid=155580&fromuid=19646)
(My interpretation to the riddle in the post: for the remaining months of 2011, there will be 3 launches from JSLC, 3 launches from XSLC, and 2 to 3 launches from TSLC, depending on the schedule of SAST.)

Next 3 launches from XSLC until end 2011 are rumored to be:
   
  • Compass I5 end October
  • Compass G5 possibly November
  • Nigcomsat-1R December

    As it turned out, it seems that launch was a suborbital missile test.
    However, new sources indicated that an orbital launch will indeed happen from Taiyuan within the next several days, with a possible launch date of October 29. (http://www.9ifly.cn/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=2187&pid=158314&fromuid=19646) A NOTAM will probably clear up any uncertainties, now that the Chinese aren't announcing orbital launches before hand...  ;)

    Interestingly, another source reported that there will be an orbital launch before the launch of SZ-8 (http://www.9ifly.cn/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=2187&pid=157895&fromuid=19646) (or is the launch of SZ-8 being delayed?).

    As it turned out, it seems that launch was a suborbital missile test.

     (http://www.9ifly.cn/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=2187&pid=158314&fromuid=19646)

    Any info about this test?

    As it turned out, it seems that launch was a suborbital missile test.
    However, new sources indicated that an orbital launch will indeed happen from Taiyuan within the next several days, with a possible launch date of October 29. (http://www.9ifly.cn/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=2187&pid=158314&fromuid=19646) A NOTAM will probably clear up any uncertainties, now that the Chinese aren't announcing orbital launches before hand...  ;)

    Now the blogger said that he got the wrong weekend for the trip: it should be November 6. (http://weibo.com/1685973727) Does that mean that the Chinese will try 5 orbital launches in November (assuming local time)?  8)

    This article says "China launched 15 rockets to send 20 satellites to space in 2010", that's another indirect  confirmation that YG-9 launch consisted of 3 S/C: YG-9A, YG-9B and YG-9C

    Hm, it means that some of the intended launches will have multiple payloads. And maybe during one (or more) former launches this year more then one satellite was sent to orbit. A potential candidate could be the launch at Aug 15th from TSLC with HY-2A. At this webpage

    http://spaceship781.blog.163.com/blog/static/29293097201172265118135/

    two philatelic covers (issued by TSLC) are shown which tells that a second satellite called Tianhang-1 was launched simultaniously.

    There is another launch being prepared at Jiuquan at the same time they are countingdown for the SZ-8 launch. Maybe this is the Shiyan Weixing-4 and Chuang Xin-3, or the YaoGan Weixing-13 launch.

    Good catch, limen4!
    This second satellite is called "a mini satellite" on the first cover, its name “天行一号” could also be read as Tianxing-1 (sky traveller-1)
    No much additional reference to it though.

    I am in email contact with one of the German team members at JSLC, who prepare the SIMBOX for SZ-8. I asked if anything is visible of launch preparations at pad 603. He answered that the pad is still empty.

    ZY-3 is now aiming for a launch in January 2012. (http://news.163.com/11/1102/21/7HSSA22H00014AEE.html)

    I spied a LM-3A rocket complete with fairings printed with the Compass system program logo in Xichang... (http://www.9ifly.cn/thread-7559-1-1.html)  ::)

    Hmm this is becoming more and more interesting: (http://news.3snews.net/gundong/20111108/16897.shtml) in this article the project manager of the Compass navigation system says that there will only be one more launch for the program this year in December (from the hints from the post above, that would most probably be the Compass-IGSO-5 launch by a LM-3A), with 6 more satellites going up in 2012. Now where do I find 12 more satellites and 7 more rockets that will go up this year?  ::)
