HKATG to launch low-orbit high-frequency satellite in June

Hong Kong Aerospace Technology Group (HKATG) has revealed plans to launch its low-orbit high-frequency satellite in June from China.

Named as Golden Bauhinia No.1, the satellite is vital for the company’s Golden Bauhinia space remote sensing project.

The satellite is designed, produced and patented by HKATG, which is the first International Astronautical Federation’s member in Hong Kong.

During this year, the Golden Bauhinia project targets to launch 165 low-orbit, high-frequency satellites, which will cover the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and developing urban hubs.

HKATG board of directors chairman Sun Fengquan said: “The Greater Bay Area aerospace industry generates tens of billions of dollars in demand each year.

“The new development direction of HKATG is centred on regional urban agglomeration and launching the “Golden Bauhinia Constellation.”

The Golden Bauhinia Constellation will leverage mobile target monitoring, space artificial intelligence (AI) and dynamic change monitoring.
