Zhuhai, Guangdong - China on Tuesday implemented a small satellite platform of geostationary orbit (GEO), DFH-3E, at the International Exhibition of China Aviation and Aerospace ongoing.

Compatible with low-cost launch vehicles, small GEO satellites based on the DFH-3E platform are directed to small and medium-sized communication satellite market with low capital expenditures.

Xiong Xiaojiang with the Aerospace Science of China and the technological corporation, also the technical director of the platform, said they have provided schemes and suggestions to users in many countries and regions and attracted considerable interest.

The global satellite market has seen changes in recent years, XIONG said. A growing number of small and medium-sized countries need their own communication satellites, but they generally have limited funds and demands.

He noted that when satellite operators prove new services or expand their services, they need small and medium satellites to deal with the uncertainty of the market.

In addition, the new business modes, such as flexible networks and the exchange of resources, also expanded the small and medium communication satellite market, she added.

Compared with other GEO satellite products in the market, the DFH-3E platform can provide significant savings users.

The first satellite based on the platform has passed the critical design review and its product development. The work is underway. It is scheduled to be released in 2022.
