Institute of Telecommunication Satellite(ITS)

Institute of Telecommunication Satellite(ITS),founded in Beijing on July 18th, 2008, is China's leading producer of communications satellite. Based on the R&D teams from the Spacecraft System Engineering Department and R&D Department of China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) who had over 46 years' experience in telecommunication satellite development and manufacturing, ITS is the leading department responsible for telecommunication satellite business in CAST, awarded with 4 National Science and Technology Progress Prizes of special class and 5 of first class.


ITS is a core player in system R&D, design, integration, test, on-orbit support and system engineering management of spacecraft and platforms in China. ITS mainly takes charge of development of telecommunications/broad-casting satellite, data relay satellite, etc. Its experience dates back to China first artificial earth satellite(DFH-1), China first practical telecommunication satellite(DFH-2A),China first 3-axis stabilized telecommunication satellite(DFH-3) and China first commercial satellite exported as a whole(Nigcomsat-1).


ITS provides well-proven space products, including DFH-3 and DFH-4 satellite platforms and on-board products, which have strong flexibility and adaptability. In addition, DFH-4S, DFH-4SP, DFH-4E and DFH-5 platforms are under development. Relying on its advanced labs and equipments, ITS is able to provide satellite system design, system performance validation and test, failure mode analysis, technology support for in-orbit operation and consulting services of Frequency & Orbit resources. Through continuous improvement of core technology and production management, ITS has achieved to be China's best and international well-known in the field of telecommunications satellite. ITS is paving the way to become one of the world's leading telecommunications satellite provider to meet the customer demands from all over the world.
