Hytera Solutions Assist in Astronauts' Return to Earth
Wednesday, April 27, 2022 | Comments

The Shenzhou-13 spacecraft safely landed on April 16, after six months aboard China’s newest orbital station in the longest crewed mission to date for the country's space program. The spacecraft carrying three astronauts landed in northern China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, about 9 hours after departing from the core Tianhe module of Tiangong space station. As the leading global provider of professional communications equipment and solutions, Hytera is proud to provide communication support for the safe landing of the Shenzhou-13 return capsule as well as the astronauts.

With the capsule landing site in Gobi Desert, the largest desert in Asia where cellular coverage can be patchy or even non-existent, the ground rescue and recovery team was in need of a reliable and portable communication system to coordinate and dispatch team members efficiently.

So the team adopted a Hytera DMR communication system. With the system, the team could be divided into convenient talkgroups, so only the relevant group needs to hear the call. The system also integrated GPS function to enable team members to be monitored and located outdoors, while Bluetooth or RFID technology in the radio could be integrated with beacons and RFID tags to provide indoor location fixes. Location technology means that members could be quickly located in the case of an accident or gets into trouble if they press the emergency button or an automatic alarm is triggered.

Hytera DMR radio systems can also be integrated with fixed telephony systems, cellular networks, CCTV platforms and Internet of Things (IoT) sensor data to provide access to a wider range of data and to enable communications with people without radios or outside the DMR coverage area.
