The launch ceremony of a global low-earth orbit (LEO) mobile satellite communication and space internet project was held in Liangjing New Area of Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality on Nov 30.

The launch coincided with the plaque unveiling ceremony for Dongfanghong Satellite Mobile Communication Co Ltd. The project is expected to develop Liangjiang into China's first global headquarters for the space internet.

With a primary investment of 20 billion yuan ($2.9 billion), the project is the first large-scale national commercial space project.

Upon completion, the project will be able to realize global two-way communication in real time under complicated geological conditions and will operate 24 hours a day thanks to a fully covered 5G internet system supported by hundreds of LEO small satellite constellations and a ground system.

According to Xieyun, general manager of Dongfanghong, 5G networking allows no delay in telephone communication, internet surfing and data processing, and for the 1000-mile height of low-earth orbit satellites shortens the signal velocity.

The unit will be linked with a station on the ground to improve its usability and efficiency. It will also be adapted to include features such as guidance enhancement, aviation and navigation surveillance, and unmanned driving technology.

The project has committed to building a global headquarters, an operation center, a talent training base and supporting industry parks in Liangjiang New Area.

The aerospace industry has become a new development opportunity and a helping force in Liangjiang. Recently, more than 20 projects and 50 billion yuan have been introduced to promote the development of Liangjiang's aerospace industry.
