Qian Xuesen Laboratory of Space Technology(Qian Lab)

Qian Xuesen Laboratory of Space Technology (hereinafter referred to as Qian Lab) was set up in December 2011, in honor of the 100 years birth anniversary of the world-renowned scientist, Dr. Qian Xuesen. As the “Special Innovative Zone” of China Academy of Space Technology (CAST), Qian Lab is concentrating on cutting-edge technology in multiple fields, such as Intelligent Space Information Processing, Electromagnetics Spectrum, Photonics and In-Situ Resource Utilization etc. It also shoulders the responsibility of space metasystem design and simulation as well as the technological and strategic planning.

Qian Lab adopts an innovative scientific research and talent management mechanism. Five academicians from the Chinese Academy of Science and Chinese Academy of Engineering lead the research in Qin Lab with their own workshops. Endowed with first-class software and hardware for scientific research, and with more than 1,000 sets of experimental facility, dozens of young experts contribute greatly to the innovation and development of space technology.

In the future, Qian Lab will devote to progressing frontier technology and strategic and technology planning, in a faith to become a first-class designer of spacecraft meatsystem, an enabler for the networked, intelligent and digitalized development of space metasystem and space technology. Qian Lab will always remain dedicated and committed to the development of the Chinese space industry and the well-being of the humanity.
