China successfully launched the world's first 6G satellite into space to test its technology. The satellite flew into orbit along with 12 other satellites from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in Shanxi Province.

Chinese media reported that this device was launched into space via a Long March-6 rocket. The launch was carried out from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center, as quoted from the Asia Times, Monday (9/11/2020).

According to the China-affiliated Global Times daily, the satellite was among three Chinese satellites that were successfully launched into orbit, along with 10 commercial remote sensing satellites developed by the Argentine company Satelogic.

This experimental satellite was developed by three companies and universities, namely the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu Guoxing Aerospace Technology and Beijing MinoSpace Technology.

This device will be used to verify the performance of 6G technology in space because the 6G frequency band will use the terahertz frequency, in contrast to 5G which uses millimeter wave frequencies.

Institute of Satellite Industry Technology academic Lu Chuan said this technology will enable satellite internet to provide a wider range of terahertz.

In addition to the 6G trial, this satellite also carries several technologies to monitor food disasters, prevent forest fires, check forestry resources and monitor water conservation and floods in mountains. This satellite will also send a lot of photos and data.

According to China Daily, 6G technology is currently very young and must overcome several technical challenges in terms of fundamental research, hardware design and its impact on the environment before it can be rolled out commercially.
