Scientific research activities and progress


TG-1 PDHU had functioned properly for 400 days since it was launched in September, 2011. It has obtained a lot of military and civil application achievements, which reseached the highest level in China and had been highly praised by the Party Central Committee, the State Council and the Central Military Commission.


SZ8-General bio-electric control cabinet

As the connection between BIOBOX and PCU, the bio-electric control cabinet provides power supply and data interface between BIOBOX and spaceflight platform, provides power management functions such as surge suppression and over-current protection for BIOBOX, has transport control management on BIOBOX, stores experimental data and engineering parameter of BIOBOX, and ensures information extraction and analysis of in-orbit storage data after it returns.


Application Information System

Application Information System is generally responsible for the control and management of payloads, provides technical support for the collection, storage, process and transmission of payload in-orbit data, and ensures compatible operation of payloads when they are in orbit.

Space scientific experimental cabinet

The outside envelop of Space science experimental equipment cabinet use the way of international standard cabinet, support the related experimental fields, keep the advanced technical support level and availability by upgrade or replace service, and accommodate the demanding of science technology over the life cycle.


Scientific experiment in-orbit data processing technology

Conduct perspective research on in-orbit data processing technology of space scientific experiments.

Innovative projects of CAS

The project analyzes the primary mission of the application system of the space station, carries out design on system scheme, and has demonstration and verification. Through scheme design and demonstration of space utilization system, the project puts forward the preliminary technical scheme of space station utilization, which lays strategic pattern for utilization and a solid foundation for CAS to make it complete the follow-up task of China Manned Space Program better.

High speed data storage technology

High speed data storage technology is the key predicted project of the GAD (General Armament Department) in the field of high resolution earth observation.


As the sub-modular of XX information recorder, it offers solid state storage ability of massive high speed data, and has reliable and detailed records on real-time work condition information.


Scientific payoffs

Up to 2013, the division had been published more than 10 academic papers and 1 academic book, applied for 6 patents, took part in 10 international conferences, and reported 6 prospective subjects.
