The Shenzhou 13 manned mission is the sixth mission 

in the key technology verification phase of the space station 

and the last mission in this phase.

The flight crew consisted of astronauts Zhai Zhigang, Wang Yaping and Ye Guangfu

The three astronauts will stay in orbit for 6 months, 

carry out 2-3 out of cabin activities, complete a series of key technology experiments for the assembly and construction of the space station, 

conduct scientific and technological experiments and 

applications such as space medicine, 

and perform diversified popular science education activities, etc.


This means that the new "space travel trio" will be celebrating the New Year at the space station~

Yes, during this New Year's Eve in space, what "quality services" will BIT provide? The BIT official Wechat account will take everyone to know it!

"Live Television Show"

   Turn on the TV, move the small bench, and wait for the rocket launch with excitement. With the firing command, the Long March 2F carrier rocket soars into the sky, heading for the universe, inner pride of BIT Wechat account staff is also rising! The same as us, we believe you who watched the live broadcast must have the same feelings.

From the "rocket perspective" on TV, you can see the jet plume, the distance from the earth, the moment of separation... These shocking scenes from the high-speed flying rocket are inseparable from the high-efficiency video coding and decoding technology developed by BIT. Since its first application to Long March rockets in 2005, this technology has continued to innovate and upgrade products, continuing to provide technical support and services for the launch of the "Shenzhou" series of spacecraft, and transmitting precious images of rocket flight dynamics back to the ground in real time.

"Automatic parking"

[Rendezvous and Docking Technology]

A netizen asked such a question: the universe is so big, how will Shenzhou 13 accurately find the sky and the core capsule in the vast sea of stars and successfully dock it? That's because our Shenzhou 13 will "automatically park"!

During the docking process, the rendezvous and docking microwave radar signal processor and microwave transponder signal processor developed by BIT showed its effect, providing important relative positioning measurement information for the space rendezvous and docking mission.

"Home Theater"

[Full immersion virtual reality psychological relief system software]

Although life in the sky is infinitely beautiful, what if it becomes boring? What if you miss the earth? What if you want to watch a movie? The BIT official Wechat account will tell you that these cases do not exist, because there is also a "home theater" in the core cabin!

BIT participated in the development of astronauts' full immersion virtual reality psychological relief system software. When astronauts want to enjoy beautiful pictures or watch a movie for leisure, such can all be realized through this system software.
