On October 14, the small satellite-2A (SSS-2A) independently developed by Shanghai Jiaotong University was successfully launched into orbit at Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center with a long March 2 D rocket.
The satellite weighs only 3.7 kilograms, and 80% of the machines in the satellite were independently developed by students from the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics; The whole satellite design breaks through the energy limitation of cubic satellite, and the reliability of satellite is significantly improved; It can not only automatically identify surface ship information in space, but also carry out the verification of new inter satellite self-organizing communication technology in space.
After the separation of the satellite and the rocket, the satellite successfully received the satellite telemetry data at 20:25 on October 14, 2021. The satellite telemetry data shows that after the separation of the satellite and the rocket, the satellite UV antenna, the AIS antenna and the solar sail were unfolded smoothly following the established program control procedures. The satellite completed the satellite rate damping in a relatively short time and switches to the solar orientation mode. At present, the satellite works regularly, the whole satellite voltage is normal, the attitude is stable. Next, the SSS-2A satellite team will continue to carry out on orbit testing to ensure the stable operation of the satellite.
