Geespace, a satellite technology and commercial services company funded by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, has launched its second batch of satellites from China’s Xichang Satellite Launch Center. The launch added eleven satellites to the Geely Future Mobility Constellation satellite network, an initiative that combines communication, navigation and remote sensing in a single satellite network that can be used for automotive applications.
The satellites are equipped with AI remote sensing functions, facilitating ecological environment monitoring and imaging solutions.
Geespace launched the initiative in 2022 with nine satellites. Since then, the company has mass-produced satellites, completed the deployment of orbital planes and achieved constellation-level telemetry, tracking and command (TT&C). It is also exploring additional applications for low-orbit satellite networks.
By 2025, Geespace aims to establish satellite-based global real-time data communication services with 72 satellites in the Geely Future Mobility Constellation. It expects the network to later expand to 168 satellites, for mobility, autonomous drive, smart connectivity and consumer electronics.
