Huawei P50 Pro receiving HarmonyOS SP5 software update

Huawei launched the HarmonyOS ecosystem as an all-in-one platform capable of delivering its services in all areas. According to the latest information, Huawei HarmonyOS is now expanding its borders and will be used this year for the improvement of space technologies.

However, Huawei donated the core structure of HarmonyOS and all core capability codes to the OpenAtom Foundation. Based on the HarmonyOS system, the OpenAtom Foundation has developed and operates an Open Source OpenHarmony project.

OpenHarmony is an open source distributed operating system jointly created by developers around the world. It has the particularity of being oriented and distributed for all scenarios.

On January 6, the first meeting of the OpenHarmony project group and the Aerospace project group (OpenHarmony in space, “OHIS”) was held from Beijing Aerospace University, after more than six months of preparation. During the meeting, the participants were research institutes, commercial aerospace companies and high schools, sponsoring units members of the working group.

The OpenHarmony can play a vital role in the future is presented from a scientific and technical point of view. This should open up huge development opportunities in Chinese satellite systems and overtake SpaceX’s Star Chain plan.

OpenHarmony technology and micro-nano satellite:

In the meeting, Yu Xiaozhou, OHIS working group leader and professor at Dalian University of Technology, presented the latest progress of the working group’s work, especially the possibility of combining OpenHarmony and micro-technology. nanosatellites.

Micro-nano satellites generally refer to satellites weighing 1 to 100 kg, and about 2,000 of them have been launched into orbit. The operating systems used in micro-nanosatellites such as VxWorks, FreeRTOS and µC / OS have been developed by large foreign companies.

Today, with the increasingly complex software and hardware systems of embedded systems, the adoption of the OpenHarmony operating system will facilitate the generalization and modular design of embedded systems, shorten development cycles and improve reliability. and real-time performance.

Currently, the key international research and development cooperation project of the Ministry of Science and Technology, led by Dalian Technological University and jointly carried out by Lige University, Lige Space Center, Chinese Academy of sciences, the Microsatellite Innovation Research Institute and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Faded away. The Astronautical Society has been officially accredited by the Ministry of Science and Technology. Chinese and Belgian experts will locate the exoplanets 4.2 light years away on the basis of the Micro-Nano satellite platform.

A range of core systems such as approach control and project propulsion will use the OpenHarmony operating system. In collaboration with several national commercial satellites, the OpenHarmony operating system will be projected into the sky in 2022 with multiple missions.

Huawei HarmonyOS Space


Professor Wang Zhaokui of Tsinghua University, Deputy Head of OHIS Working Group, presented a report titled “Real-time Situation Awareness and Intelligent Processing of Imagery Satellites”. Real-time intelligent situational awareness is an important direction for the development of satellite applications in the future.

Based on the research of this team, Wang Zhaokui initiated deep learning of research progress and software and hardware requirements of intelligent methods such as real satellite. Timely situational awareness and handling of future technical needs and OpenHarmony satellite intelligence development proposals.

OpenHarmony in space:

Focusing on the potential application of OpenHarmony in the field of detection and detection of space targets, Professor Jing Fei of Tsinghua University conducted a comprehensive analysis of the dangers of making space targets and the operation of spacecraft and studied China’s deep space and jointly analyzed with Earth orbit. and monitoring targets.

The projects, the important role that OpenHarmony can play in the future, are presented from a scientific and technical point of view. Based on Tsinghua University’s resources such as Future Chip Beijing High-Precision Advanced Center, Jing Fei highlights the advantages and long-term position of OpenHarmony, such as smart satellite chips, mutual assistance hardware and multi-machine migration. Satellite background chips, main peripherals and three levels of functional components. This should open up huge development opportunities in Chinese satellite systems and overtake SpaceX’s Star Chain plan.

Professor Zhang Guo from Wuhan University presented the future construction plan of the “Light Sound” constellation, the progress and the possibility of combining it with OpenHarmony technology. The “Space Hydrology Station” and the “Space Water Quality Station” partially replace the Surface Hydrology Station and the surface water quality stations.

In addition, the UAV planetarium integrates swarm and soil monitoring stations, which will become an integrated intelligent perception network of sky and soil, which can better serve water conservation, agricultural environment protection and other industries. Geng Sameng of Aerospace Maker (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd. presents the relevant plan for the introduction of OHIS education in primary and secondary schools.

Focusing on the open source ecosystem of OpenHarmony, Yang Mutian of Zhongke Weilan Technology Co., Ltd. with the title “Open Source in Aerospace, Building a Foundation for Security -” discusses the security issues of open source software supply chains for the aerospace industry, startup, open source technology ecological security vulnerability awareness ” , and proposed a series of recommendations to build a new generation of security infrastructure to improve the security of the industry.

In addition, the OHIS working group charter and future directions for space exploration based on OpenHarmony. As the open source OpenHarmony project enters the aerospace sector and gradually achieves the ambitious goal of OpenHarmony in Space. Also, a number of achievements will be implemented in 2022.
