Tianqi 1 [Guodian Gaoke]
Tianqi (also transcribed Tiange) is a series of small Chinese experimental LEO comsats by Guodian Gaoke for IoT communications, which are also carrying a camera for educational purposes.
Guodian Gaoke plans to operate an IoT constellation operation. The "Apocalypse Constellation" provides users with much-needed data collection and transmission services for terrestrial network coverage blind areas, which are widely used in marine, environmental protection, meteorological, forestry, geological, emergency, rescue and smart city industries to enhance China's global data network coverage and application capabilities are of strategic importance.
The second satellite, Tianqi 3 or Tao Xingzhi, was launched in June 2019 on the first sea launch of a CZ-11H rocket.
The third satellite, Tianqi 2, was one of the paylaods on the maiden Jielong-1 flight in August 2019.
Two more satellite, Tianqi 4A and 4B, were launched on December 2019 on a Kuaizhou-1A rocket.
