The average service life of Beidou satellite is about 10 years, and the service life of Beidou satellite is mainly related to the life of fuel and on-board equipment.
Beidou satellite is a navigation system, which is widely used in China’s military and life, which brings us a lot of convenience. How long is the general life of Beidou satellite? Let’s learn about it with Xiaobian.
The life of the Beidou satellites is generally about 10 years, but in fact, the service life of the satellites is slightly longer, and some can even reach about 12 years.
China successfully launched three Beidou-1 satellites on October 31, 2000 and December 21, and on May 25, 2003, respectively. Since then, 29 Beidou navigation satellites have been successfully launched.
Satellite life is a comprehensive reflection of the manufacturing level of the space industry, mainly related to two aspects, one is the fuel life, and the other is the life of the on-board equipment. At the same time, it is also closely related to the level of satellite launch technology, orbit entry control technology, position holding technology and attitude control orbit control technology, and the reduction of energy consumption in any link can extend the actual life of the satellite.
The life of fuel depends on the carrying capacity and the level of orbit control, and the life of on-board equipment depends on the manufacturing level of high-end products and components. The improvement of the effective service life of satellites can reduce the number of backup satellites, the number and times of satellite replacement, the operating cost of networking and the service performance of constellation.
After all kinds of accidents will happen in space, don’t worry, Wen Xing will repair himself first.
