The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) is the main contractor for the Chinese space program. It is state-owned and has a number of subordinate entities which design, develop and manufacture a range of spacecraft, launch vehicles, strategic and tactical missile systems, and ground equipment. It was officially established in July 1999 as part of a Chinese government reform drive, having previously been one part of the former China Aerospace Corporation. Various incarnations of the program date back to 1956.



The Belarussian satellite BELINTERSAT-1 (also known as ChinaSat-15) is a communications satellite that will provide TV, Radio broadcasting and internet access to European and Eastern regions. The satellite was built in close partnership with China and contains 20 C-Band and 18 Ku-band transponders. Stationed at 51.5 degrees east in a geostationary orbit the satellite is expected to remain operational for at least 15 years.
