Carrier Rocket
In spaceflight , a LAUNCH VEHICLE or CARRIER ROCKET is a rocket used to carry a payload from Earth's surface into outer space . A LAUNCH SYSTEM includes the launch vehicle, the launch pad , and other infrastructure. Although a carrier rocket's payload is often an artificial satellite placed into orbit , some spaceflights, such as sounding rockets , are sub-orbital , while others enable spacecraft to escape Earth orbit entirely. Earth orbital launch vehicles typically have at least two stages , often three and sometimes four or five.

Tracking And Data Relay Satellite System
The TRACKING AND DATA RELAY SATELLITE SYSTEM (TDRSS) is a network of American communications satellites (each called a Tracking and data relay satellite (TDRS)) and ground stations used by NASA for space communications. The system was designed to replace an existing network of ground stations that had supported all of NASA's manned flight missions. The prime design goal was to increase the time spacecraft were in communication with the ground and improve the amount of data that could be transferred. Many Tracking and Data Relay Satellites were launched in the 1980s and 1990s with the Space Shuttle and made use of the Inertial Upper Stage , a two-stage solid rocket booster developed for the shuttle. Other TDRS were launched by Atlas IIa and Atlas V rockets. The most recent generation of satellites provides ground reception rates of 6 Mbit/s in the S-band and 800 Mbit/s in the Ku- and Ka-bands . This is mainly used by the US military

Tracking And Data Relay Satellite
A TRACKING AND DATA RELAY SATELLITE (TDRS) is a type of communications satellite that forms part of the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) used by NASA
NASA
and other United States government agencies for communications to and from independent "User Platforms" such as satellites , balloons, aircraft, the International Space Station , and remote bases like the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station . This system was designed to replace an existing worldwide network of ground stations that had supported all of NASA's manned flight missions and unmanned satellites in low-Earth orbits. The primary system design goal was to increase the amount of time that these spacecraft were in communication with the ground and improve the amount of data that could be transferred. These TDRSS satellites are all designed and built to be launched to and function in geosynchronous orbit , 35,786 km (22,236 mi) above the surface of the Earth

Huanjing (satellite)
China plans to launch eleven HUANJING (Chinese : 环境) satellites for disaster and environmental monitoring ("huanjing" is Chinese for "environment"). The satellites will be capable of visible, infrared, multi-spectral and synthetic aperture radar imaging. The first two satellites, Huanjing-1A and Huanjing-1B, were launched on September 6, 2008 on a CZ-2C (i.e. Chang Zheng-2C / Long March-2C) rocket from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center . In a report dated 2008-09-03, the Associated Press of Pakistan indicated the launch would be conducted 2008-09-05 using a Long March 2C carrier rocket. On 2008-09-05, Aviation Week reported the first launch would be of optical imaging satellites

Dark Matter Particle Explorer
The DARK MATTER PARTICLE EXPLORER, or DAMPE, is a Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) satellite which was launched on 17 December 2015 at 00:12 UTC . The satellite was launched on a Long March 2D rocket from Launch Pad 603 at the LC-43 complex, also known as the South Launch Site , at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center . It is China's first ever space observatory. DAMPE is a space telescope used for the detection of high energy gamma rays , electrons and cosmic ray ions, to aid in the search for dark matter . The project is the result of a collaboration among universities in Italy, Switzerland, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is nicknamed WUKONG (Chinese : 悟空) after the Monkey King , who is the hero in the classic Chinese tale Journey to the West . Literally, "wu"(悟) means comprehension or understanding and "kong"(空)means void, so this name could also be understood as "understanding the void", relating to the undiscovered nature of dark matter

Gaofen
GAOFEN-1 (Chinese : 高分一号; pinyin : Gāofēn Yī hào) is a high resolution Chinese Earth observation satellite . Gaofen-1 was launched on April 26, 2013 at 4:13 UTC with a Long March 2D carrier rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center along with the three small experimental satellites: Turksat 3USat (Turkey), CubeBug-1 (Argentina) and NEE-01 Pegaso (Ecuador) in a sun-synchronous orbit. The civilian HDEOS (High-Definition Earth Observation Satellite) program was proposed in 2006 and received approval in 2010. Gaofen-1 is the first of six planned HDEOS spacecraft to be launched between 2013 and 2016. The satellite's primary goal is to provide NRT (Near-Real-Time) observations for disaster prevention and relief, climate change monitoring, geographical mapping, environmental and resource surveying, as well as precision agriculture support.

Geostationary Orbit
A GEOSTATIONARY ORBIT, GEOSTATIONARY EARTH ORBIT or GEOSYNCHRONOUS EQUATORIAL ORBIT (GEO) is a circular orbit 35,786 kilometres (22,236 mi) above the Earth's equator and following the direction of the Earth's rotation. An object in such an orbit has an orbital period equal to the Earth's rotational period (one sidereal day ) and thus appears motionless, at a fixed position in the sky, to ground observers. Communications satellites and weather satellites are often placed in geostationary orbits, so that the satellite antennas (located on Earth
Earth
) that communicate with them do not have to rotate to track them, but can be pointed permanently at the position in the sky where the satellites are located

Communications Satellite
A COMMUNICATIONS SATELLITE is an artificial satellite that relays and amplifies radio telecommunications signals via a transponder ; it creates a communication channel between a source transmitter and a receiver at different locations on Earth. Communications satellites are used for television, telephone, radio, internet, and military applications. There are over 2,000 communications satellites in Earth’s orbit, used by both private and government organizations. Wireless communication uses electromagnetic waves to carry signals. These waves require line-of-sight, and are thus obstructed by the curvature of the Earth. The purpose of communications satellites is to relay the signal around the curve of the Earth allowing communication between widely separated points. Communications satellites use a wide range of radio and microwave frequencies
