Xingyun Jiaotong VDES Shiyan is a planned Chinese LEO constellation for Internet-of-Things (IoT) communications operated by Xingyun Satellite Co., a subsidiary of CASIC with commercial investors.

The satellites appears to be based on the Xingyun-2 satellites, featuring an L-band communication payload and an inter-satellite laser communication package. The narrow-band data transfer rate is 2.4 - 9.6 kbps uplink and 2.4 kbps downlink. Additionally a payload for maritime-tracking VDES and an AIS payload are on board.

The satellites was launched in December 2022 on a Kuaizhou-11 rocket.
