记者今天从国防科技大学获悉:由该校航天科学与工程学院自主研制的“国防科大立方星”(NUDTSat),搭载比利时冯卡门流体力学研究所的载荷,6月23日在印度萨迪什•达万航天中心。

CHANGSHA, June 28 (ChinaMil) -- The National University of Defense Technology Satellite (NUDT Sat), independently developed by the College of Aerospace Science and Engineering of NUDT, was successfully put into the preset orbit on June 23 at Satish Dhawan Space Centre in India.

与欧盟QB50计划中的其他7颗立方星一同发射升空,进入预定轨道。

The NUDT Sat, carrying the load of Von Karman Institute of Fluid Dynamics, was launched into space together with other seven CubeSats of EU's QB50 project.

长沙地面站随后接收的星上数据显示,卫星运行状态良好。这是该校开展航天国际合作取得的一项标志性成果。

The data, a ground station in Changsha, capital city of central China's Hunan Province, received from the NUDT Sat shows that the satellite is in good condition.

这同时也是近5年中成功发射的第10颗微纳卫星。

The NUDT Sat is the tenth nano-satellite (NanoSat) NUDT has successfully launched in the past five years.

“国防科大立方星”重约2.1公斤,为标准2U(10cm×10cm×22.7cm)结构,其主载荷为离子与中性粒子质谱仪,用于开展低热层大气成分探测。

The NUDT Sat weighs about 2.1 kg and it is of the standard 2U (10cm × 10cm × 22.7cm) structure. Its main load is the Ion/Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS) used to carry out lower thermosphere atmospheric composition detection.

它与欧盟QB50计划中的其他卫星组成低层大气探测卫星星座,部署在离地面500公里的轨道上,对大气低热层进行探测,配合完成目前人类尚未深入开展过的中性粒子和带电离子组成与分布、阻力参数、大气温度、近地磁场等长时间多点原位测量,同时开展卫星再入大气层过程的相关研究。

The NUDT Sat and the other CubeSats in the EU QB50 project are deployed in the orbit at an altitude of 500 km  to form a satellite constellation to carry out multi-point, in-situ and long-duration exploration of lower thermosphere, including measurement of neutral particles and charged ion composition and distribution, resistance parameters, atmospheric temperature, near-Earth magnetic field, for reentry research and for in-orbit demonstrations of technologies and miniaturized sensors.

欧盟QB50计划是欧盟第七框架协议的旗舰项目,它吸引了全世界五大洲23个国家与地区的参与,已成为迄今为止世界上参与国家最多的国际航天合作项目。

The EU QB50 project is the flagship project of the EU Seventh Framework Program (FP7), which attracts the participation of leading universities and research institutes from 23 countries in the world and has become the world's largest international space cooperation project.

近年来,该校先后研制并发射了世界首颗单板纳星“天拓一号”、我国首颗视频成像微纳卫星“天拓二号”、包含6颗卫星的国内首个集群卫星“天拓三号”,以及我国首个卫星在轨加注实验卫星“天源一号”。取得了5年5次成功发射10颗微纳卫星的骄人成绩。

NUDT has successfully designed and successfully launched ten NanoSats in the past five years, including the world’s first single-layer NanoSat Tiantuo-1, China’s first video imaging NanoSat Tiantuo-2 and TianTuo-3 constellation which contains six NanoSats and Tianyuan-1, which is China's first experimental satellite for satellites in-orbit refueling.
