China successfully launched the world's first 6G communication satellite test.

The satellite entered orbit with 12 other satellites at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in Shanxi Province.

According to media reports, the 6G satellites are three Chinese satellites that have been successfully launched into orbit and ten commercial remote-sensing satellites developed by the Argentine Satellite Company.

The satellite is named after the Chinese University of Electronic Science and Technology, and it was jointly developed by Chengdu Guoxing Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd. , China University of Electronic Science and Technology, and Beijing Meinong Aerospace Technology Co. GmbH.

The telecommunications industry is still a few years away from the approval of the 6G specification, so it remains uncertain whether the technology being tested will find a final standard.

The satellite uses high-frequency terahertz waves to achieve the data transfer speeds that 5G networks can achieve.

Since the 6G frequency range extends from the millimeter-wave 5G frequencies to the terahertz frequencies, the satellite will be used to verify the performance of 6G technology in space.

The satellite also contains technologies for monitoring agricultural disasters and preventing forest fires.

Satellites are the first technical test to use terahertz frequencies for space communication, said Xu Yangsheng, an academic with the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

This technology is expected to be about 100 times faster than 5G, so that lossless transmission in space can be achieved to achieve remote communication with less output power.

According to the University of Oulu, Finland, the sixth generation is still in its infancy. Before the technology can be commercialized, it must overcome many technical obstacles in basic research and design of the device and its impact on the environment.

"Terahertz technology can be widely used through satellite Internet," said Lu Chuan, director of the Institute of Satellite Technology at China University of Electronic Science and Technology.

Chuan noted that the satellite has a farsighted system that can monitor disasters, forest fires, forest resources, monitor water and mountain streams, and provide sufficient images and data from satellites.
