Abstract

China’s space industry has developed considerably since it was first established in 1956. Following a strategy based on self-reliance, China relies primarily on its own capabilities to develop space industry to meet the needs of modernization, based upon its actual conditions and strength. Significant achievements in the fields of Earth observation (EO), communication satellite system, positioning, navigation and timing (PNT), and space situational awareness (SSA) have been realized.
