Disruptive innovation – Sohu technology of satellite industry to new ventures superrecovery

New ventures to disruptive innovation – Sohu technology [Technews] science news of satellite satellite application industry has been very common, now anyone can easily browse the map to open the Google satellite image, while the number of satellites also grow with each passing day, over the past 5 years, the world actively launch satellites, the satellite the total number of 40%, according to air satellite to monitor global warming, small to the measurement of field information, seems to have been a very mature industry, however, there are still new ventures to disruptive innovation in this field. A business "San Francisco based planet" (Planet), currently has a number of satellites orbiting in space of up to 62, and plans to reach 100 at the end of 2016, the launch of satellite frequency and speed and no one can say. The company wants to make a disruptive innovation in the current expensive satellite industry, making it the same as consumer electronics. All this will return to two co-founder Will Matthew (Will Marshall) and Crisp Hugh Jan (Chris Boshuizen) at NASA (NASA) work, 2010, the two NASA aerospace engineers noticed that their intelligent mobile phone pocket, operational effectiveness, has more than the vast majority of artificial space satellite or other equipment is stronger, and the intelligent mobile phone in many ways, the same with the basic components of the satellite, such as batteries, GPS, wireless transmission, only provided with a power supply in the space of the solar panel, and the adjustment of the system orbit in space. Two crazy engineers decided to actually launch the phone into space, which is certainly not approved by NASA. Two people put the mobile phone on the amateur rocket, see mobile phone can bear off the process of vibration, G stress, and the space in the vacuum environment, apparently after fall, collision testing of commercial mobile phone can easily cope with these challenges. Then, the two official proposal to NASA, to the mobile phone to launch a formal test feasibility in space in 2013, NASA for the project, led by two people in to the International Space Station resupply rocket, with 3 Google Nexus 1 mobile phone launched together, then in the international space station at the release of mobile phone into space, into 3 small satellites in space camera, mobile phone, game player can receive the amateur radio ground it photographs, but the cost of $3500 and total emission. Although the mobile phone camera pictures of the ground resolution is low, almost completely useless, but this success has brought two new ideas in the past artificial satellites are expensive and often have to launch a satellite planning for a year, but a year down the mobile phone has a new kind of machine, the computational efficiency and the specifications are increased significantly. If the satellite can be like at the hand相关的主题文章:
