China Manned Space Engineering Office publicly solicits Tianzhou spacecraft carrying projects from the public


2021-11-25: [Article Link] Recently, the China Manned Space Engineering Office officially issued the "Announcement on the Opportunity to Solicit Scientific and Technological Test (Real) Inspection and Application Projects of the Tianzhou Series Cargo Spacecraft" to openly solicit carrying projects from the public. "Announcement" Full text and conditions requirements, declaration form, etc., can be registered to China's Manned Space Engineering Network (http://www.cmse.gov.cn) for inquiry. This solicitation activity is mainly for government agencies, scientific research institutes, educational institutions, enterprises, industry organizations and other units to collect scientific and technological test (actual) and application projects based on the Tianzhou series cargo spacecraft platform. All projects that meet the frontiers of science and technology, the needs of national development strategies and the development trend of science and technology, are forward-looking and innovative or have industrial development application value can be declared, the deadline for this round of solicitation is January 15, 2022. At present, China's space station in orbit construction is go as smoothly as planned, after the completion of the click application and development stage, the day boat series freighter will on average 2, on the part of frequency of emission. This series of cargo spacecraft for China's independent development, by the cargo cabin (generally fully sealed State) and resource cabin composition, the orbit is not higher than 450 kilometers, material upward capacity of about 6.5 tons, the flight time in orbit is about 1 year. Because of its outstanding advantages such as strong transportation capacity, long flight time and high launch frequency, it is an exclusive cargo and supply transportation platform for China's space station, it can also be expanded into a pilot (practical) platform for space science and technology and application projects open to the society. Since the establishment and implementation of China's manned space project, it has always adhered to the concept of peaceful development of outer space for mankind and contribution to the sustainable development of mankind. It attaches great importance to the development of space application projects and serves the national economy and people's livelihood, services as well as the lives of the people. Since the beginning of the Shenzhou-1 mission, projects with scientific research value or social benefits have been carried out in previous missions, and they have played an active role in promoting scientific research, agricultural development, and industrial upgrading. Prior to this, the China Manned Space Engineering Office and the United Nations Space Department for Foreign Affairs have cooperated on the application of China's space station, providing countries around the world, especially developing countries, to use the Chinese space station to carry out application experiments and benefit from it, the first batch of 9 projects from 17 countries and 23 entities were successfully selected, covering the fields of space life science and biotechnology, space astronomy, microgravity fluid and combustion. At present, project implementation is being carried out as planned. This public solicitation is the first time in the history of China's manned space project to open up cargo spacecraft carrying resources to the society. The purpose is to further exert the comprehensive benefits of manned space engineering and promote space technology innovation research and aerospace high-tech personnel training. In the follow-up, China's manned space project will be open to the whole society and international partners in a planned, targeted and organized manner, and strive to achieve joint construction, sharing, and sharing for the benefit of all mankind, make a positive contribution to building a community with a shared future for mankind.
