In the launch listing for 2012 it is implied that the Shijian 9 launch will comprise two satellites aboard a CZ-2D2 from Jiuquan.

Gunter Krebs is showing Shijian 9 as being a single satellite mission (http://space.skyrocket.de/doc_sdat/sj-9.htm).

Is it possible to clarify whether the Shijian 9 launch is expected to be one or two satellites, please?   Of course, the launch could be *two* satellites of the type shown by Gunter!

I wonder whether this will be a follow-on to the oddity Shijian 7 which used the same launch vehicle and launch site in 2005 - that satellite has not been satisfactorally explained to my knowledge.

The SJ-9 mission will apparently include a small subsatellite, perhaps as a target for precission positon keeping.

I need to update the entry on page on this matter.

If we assume - and I believe that it is a reasonable assumption - that the Shijian programme is primarily developing technology for Chinese military space missions, I would have thought that Shijian 12 had already demonstrated some precision station-keeping.

So, what could Shijian 9A/B demonstrate that Shijian 12 did not, I wonder?

Well the contract, signed in September 2009, refers to "an undisclosed customer of the Indian Ocean region". There aren't many customer around the Indian Ocean would require not to disclose its identity and still bought a launch service (and probably the satellite too, as I can't remember any geostationary communication satellite contract that the customer was not announced for the past few years).

I believe the only customer that fits all the evidence shown is Iran. Which makes sense, since last time the Iranians had failed to impress the Russians to build comsats for them  ::), and I would incline to believe they would need a medium sized comsats for their own use. In today's market, only the Chinese would even dare to try to sell satellites for them.

Well these links are the only ones that I could find for now, so nope, other than that it doesn't seems to be included in the launch schedule of 2012. (Keep in mind that I'm just a poor college student in Hong Kong!  :P)

Very well, thank you for you insight! In fact, not expecting this launch to be made this year I'll put the launch on the 2013 schedule.

Can I suggest that we should currently still be showing the planned date for SZ-9 as June 2012?

Although last week's announcement mentioned a June to August launch timeframe, it seems certain that, at this point in time, the Chinese plan is to launch in June? Otherwise, why would they have referred to that date at all?

Presumably, referring to the June to August period, simply avoids having to make further announcements, if the date moves to the right, between now and June.

Also, www.zarya.info indicates that TG-1 is currently on track to be in the right orbit for SZ operations by early June. If this changes, or if the Chinese say something else, then the date can be amended, at that time?

Interestingly, this forum member (who is obviously an aerospace "insider" source) indicates that Compass M3 and M4 will be launched first, and these two satellites will be leaving CASC's factory for the launch site soon (I will go one step further and predict that the launch will be in 2Q 2012, perhaps in May). Compass M2 and M5 will follow later (2H 2012).

And there's a blogger who announced that he/she will travel to Jiuquan soon for "launching a satellite". Possibly an indicator for watching JSLC for launches in the March/April timeframe (and keep in mind that the next launch from Taiyuan is in April too).

Before updating the schedule, I want to share with you some considerations.

China said that in 2012 we would see 21 launches with 30 satellites being sent into orbit. Also, it as been said that Xichang will have 8 launches. I think these are:

1 - Fengyun-2F
2 - Compass-G5
3 - Apstar-7
4 - Compass-M3/M4
5 - Compass-M2/M5
6 - Zhongxing-12 (Apstar-7B)
7 - Tianlian-1C
8 - Compass-G6

So, 8 launches with 10 satellites. For Jiuquan I think we might have:

1 - Shenzhou-9
2 - Francisco Miranda
3 - Tianhui-2
4 - Yaogan Weixing-14
5 - Shijian-9A/B
6 - Shijian 11-05 (11-04R)
7 - Gokturk-2
8 - China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite (CSES)

So, 8 launches with 9 satellites. Finally, for Taiyuan:

1 - Ziyuan-3 / Vesselsat-2
2 - CBERS-3
3 - Huanjing-1C
4 - Shijian-6 Group 5
5 - Yaogan Weixing-15

That is, 5 launches with 7 satellites.

That is 21 launches but with only 26 satellites (we can expect a few more double launches).

Any ideas, any help?!

That's quite close to my estimation! Comments:

1. I think the CSES is still in the prototyping stage, and I don't think it's possible for it to be launched in 2012. The 21st launch is more likely to be a YG-16 from Taiyuan.

2. Keep in mind that YG-14 has been suspected to be a three satellite constellation...

3. I've seen sources that indicate that the FN-1 mission (itself a pair of satellites with masses of 160 and 30 kg respectively) will be launched with SJ-9A/B.

4. If HJ-1C will not be launched this year, then I suspect that there will be a SJ-11-06.

That's 29 satellites accounted for. Given that several universities and institutions in China are building microsats, it wouldn't be a stretch to predict that one of them will be launched this year. That's your 30 satellites.  :)
