Shiyan 7 (SY 7, Experiment 7) or Tansuo 7 (TS 7) is a experimental Chinese satellite.

It was launched in 2013 on a CZ-4C rocket. It has been reported, that SY 7 carries a robotic arm experiment. Around 19 October 2013, the main satellite deployed a subsatellite. Both satellites performed orbital noeuvres, but remained in close proximity and multiple separations and dockings had been assumed in different orbits.
