From 2022, Sino-French satellite will observe the early days of the universe

In June 2022, a Long March rocket will deliver the Sino-French Astronomical Satellite (Svom) to space 600 kilometers above the Xichang launch base in Sichuan. Project leader François Gonzalez detailed that the launch of the rocket, originally scheduled for 2021, was delayed by several months due to "technical issues" and that the coronavirus pandemic has also put the French research team at risk. Unable to travel to China.
This will be launched in June 2 or June 24 from Xichang.

Was scheduled for June 2023, are you sure it's now one year earlier ?

The source you mention is from 2020. The SVOM homepage https://www.svom.eu/ is still given 2023 as launch year.

📢 The SVOM satellite 🛰️ is now almost fully assembled!

It's time for environmental tests and in particular electromagnetic compatibility. For this, the satellite is placed in an anechoic chamber.

The Sino-French astronomical satellite will be launched in June this year and will carry out detection work such as gamma ray bursts.

The reporter learned from the Microsatellite Innovation Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences that the Sino-French astronomical satellite jointly developed by China and France will be launched in June this year. At present, the development and environmental testing of the satellite have been completed, and experts from China and France have conducted a factory review of the satellite. After the satellite is launched, it will carry out work such as detecting gamma ray bursts in the universe, studying the evolution of the universe and dark energy.
The launch might be on June 2024.

他们“众筹”一颗卫星
Quote
They "crowdfunded" a satellite

On the first anniversary of the satellite's launch, Zhang Yonghe and Yang Yiqiang, chief designer of the Lijian-1 launch vehicle, jointly released the "Innovation X" scientific flight plan. The plan will collect new payloads and products that require on-orbit verification from all over the world. It will use the "Lijian-1" launch vehicle to carry 4 50-kg scientific micro-nano satellites, 2 100-kg scientific micro-satellites, and 1 scientific micro-nano satellite every year. A 600-kilogram scientific experiment satellite was launched.

The second satellite of the scientific flight plan, the CATCH scientific microsatellite, will be launched in June this year. The satellite, which is less than 50 kilograms, carries four payloads and is about to launch a new round of space tests.

"While we continue to optimize the design of the satellite platform, we are also understanding the needs of scientists." Zhang Yonghe said, "Our practice shows that this model works. As the subsequent cost is further reduced, we will help more and more The more scientists carry out basic research.”
The Catch Kexue Weixiao(CATCH科学微小卫星)will be launched in June by Lijian-1, might be Y5?

“全变源追踪猎人星座”计划(CATCH)
Quote
"Total Variable Source Tracking Hunter Constellation" program (CATCH)

In response to the serious shortage of follow-up observation capabilities in the field of time-domain astronomy, the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences innovatively proposed an internationally innovative space exploration plan in 2019, the "Chasing All Transients Constellation Hunters" plan. Referred to as CATCH). CATCH is an X-ray observation constellation composed of 3 types of micro-satellites with a total of 126 micro-satellites. Its core scientific goal is to "describe the multi-parameter dynamic panorama of the extreme universe". Each satellite will be equipped with a compact and lightweight X-ray telescope with focused imaging capabilities independently developed by my country. Through intelligent control, a single satellite can perform its own duties and track and observe one or several variable source celestial bodies. Hundreds of satellites can work together to achieve blind spots and uninterrupted monitoring of massive variable sources. In addition, many satellites can also form a large field of view or high-precision telescope constellation to jointly suppress some important targets (such as gravitational wave bursts). CATCH has outstanding scientific capabilities and will bring important scientific discoveries.
The CATCH means "Chasing All Transients Constellation Hunters" (全变源追踪猎人星座), Quanbianyuan Zhuizong Lieren Xingzuo.

The battle is in progress|Satellite Innovation Institute held a 100-day mobilization meeting for models leaving the factory

On March 25, 2024, the Microsatellite Innovation Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (hereinafter referred to as the "Satellite Innovation Institute") held a 100-day mobilization meeting for the Sino-French Astronomical Satellite (SVOM), CATCH-1 test satellite, Innovation 22 and other models to leave the factory. . Hu Haiying, President of the Satellite Innovation Institute, Zhou Gen, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee and Secretary of the Discipline Inspection Commission, Yin Zengshan, Vice President, and Zhang Yonghe, Council Member of the Institute attended the meeting. More than 80 people including the chief engineer of the Satellite Innovation Institute, heads of scientific research and management departments, responsible experts and representatives of the model development team attended the meeting. The meeting was chaired by Shen Yuan, Minister of Scientific Research Management Department.

The two presidents of relevant models reported respectively on the development progress, risk analysis and measures, as well as the progress of preparations for the launch site. Yin Zengshan read out the list of experts responsible for the model, requiring the responsible experts to give full play to their technical control functions, strictly control the technical status, analyze problems and countermeasures together with the model, and make every effort to ensure that the model leaves the factory on time and with high quality, and to ensure the smooth implementation of flight control tasks.

During the leadership mobilization session, Zhou Zhougen and Yin Zengshan respectively put forward expectations and requirements for the models. The three models each have their own characteristics and are of great significance. They are both opportunities and challenges. They hope that the model team will strengthen their confidence in winning, fully carry forward the spirit of struggle, and further play the vanguard role of party members. role, strengthen organizational management and responsibility implementation, coordinate the confidentiality and safety of scientific research and production, and work together to achieve the 100-day goal.

Finally, Hu Haiying put forward three requirements: First, the relevant models each shoulder an important mission and are an important part of the future development of the Satellite Innovation Institute. They are of great significance and must be paid high attention to and strengthen the sense of responsibility. The second is to closely follow the task requirements, fully identify the model characteristics, key points and difficulties, continue to work hard in further strengthening the overall capabilities, strengthening status control, strengthening testing and testing, etc., constantly strengthening the ideological and style construction, and ensuring the factory satellites with solid and effective work. of good condition. Third, all parties have effectively coordinated and strengthened resource guarantees, and relevant supporting departments have worked closely to promote all work to go hand in hand to ensure the successful completion of the task.
