Beijing, Nov.7 (People's Daily Online) -- China's space control network has realized integrated command and control, which ensured the successful docking of the unmanned spacecraft Shenzhou 8 with the space lab module Tiangong 1, according to the Beijing Institute of Tracking and Communication Technology.

This institute is the general design organization for the integration test of China's aerospace measurement and control network.

On the eve of the docking, the first for China, scientists from this institute upgraded the systems of the Relay Satellite Control Center, the Space Object Collision Warning Analysis Center and other space centers in Beijing as well as Jiuquan of Gansu province and Xi'an of Shanxi province.

All five centers are integrated to build a center group with a high degree of shared information and collaborative business.
