According to the Chinese Academy of Sciences, this cloud-based platform is supposed to help the space industry conduct commercial activities. The CAS further said that it is also to bring the top level and notable aerospace technologies, revolutions and innovations to life.
The cloud-based platform is helping in management of the spacecraft control. It is also expected to look after the data communication, processing and other applications related to the industry.
As the platform offers facilities like data computing and data storage, this cloud technology will prove to be useful to its users in both reducing cost and minimizing the difficulties which may be faced in shaping the satellite implementation system.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences, with Alibaba Cloud, which is data intelligence extension of the Alibaba Group, have together signed a collaboration agreement which will result in the joint development and expansion of products as well as services under the supervision of the Space Cloud Cubic platform.
