More than 30,000 scenes of disasters, water and fire disasters, etc., high-quality completion of remote sensing emergency support tasks such as extremely heavy rainfall disasters in Henan, "firework" typhoon disasters, and autumn floods in the Yellow River, have been highly praised by relevant departments.In the field of satellite navigation, Shandong Industry and Research Institute, Jinan City, and Beijing Future Navigation Company jointly built a high-precision low-orbit satellite Beidou navigation enhancement system, including 162 low-orbit navigation satellites, 10 satellite ground stations and 1 satellite operation and control center. It will become the low-cost commercial satellite navigation system with the highest global positioning accuracy and the widest coverage area. In the second half of last year, it successfully completed the launch of four test satellites S3, S4, S5, and S6, and is currently carrying out satellite on-orbit verification tasks in an orderly manner. The Jinan ground station and the operation and control center were completed and put into use. The mass production of constellation network satellites and the demonstration of the multi-satellite launch plan have been launched. The network construction has entered the stage of full implementation. In 2023, the first batch of 18 network satellites will also be launched. , open the test application and provide commercial services. After the system is completed, it will drive the rapid development of Shandong's local commercial satellite design, manufacturing, and high-precision navigation chips and positioning application markets, cultivate a group of professionals in the satellite industry, form a high-precision satellite navigation industry cluster, and radiate other regions in the province.
