||As the advance of technology and extend of military usage, modern war has gradually changed the type and appearance of trandition , also makes the field of war to extend from the ground, sea, air into space. The development of satellite industry is involved with the field of technology , national overall security and international status. In recently years, the great powers in the world continuously look into this”blue sea”, the space race has begun. In order to enhance the comprehensive national power and international status , following the development model of the United States and Russia, China continuous to formulate relative policies of satellite development strategy, and pulish the white paper of space development as a precondition to national interest. Looking forward to the future simultaneously, to drive the security situation of the neighboring countries and compete in mutual benefit.
This thesis is to discuss” The strategy Of Satellite Developmnet” as the starting point, analyze the historical background of China’s satellite development , the corresponding policy at each stage, and the evolution of the satellite development strategy. In order to expand satellite technology capability, build China into a space power , and enhance rocket launch capability, each leader started to lend the technology as the leader , formulate policies of satellite and technology development, the cumulative energy or development trend of the process, and then formate the strategic evolution.
Space power is main key link for China to buld the strategic development of national security. In order to achieve this key point, from the satellite development of China in the space of point of view, at the present stage, to develop communication, navigation and positioning, reconnaissance , and weather satellites which make them have the supporting abilities of military operations of command, control, communication, collection, surveillance and reconnaissance, which will enhance the effectiveness in the warfare , improve navigation capability of the intercontinental ballistic missile and 3C(communication, command, control), increase collection capability and provide early warning , build up future strategic defense. That being said, factors of the internal , financial, diplomatic and international affairs which will affect the projection of satellite development strategy.
The study found that China develops the satellite between two fires, which restricts the projection of future strategy. However, through the strategy of satellite development, to construct basical 4 satellites of application and promote overall national power and international reputation basing on polices of development foundation, deep application, moving towards the world. It’s certainly result to construct regional military effect capability in advance when facing 4 aspects of strategic challenge with the satellite.
