Science & Military2020-01-15


China successfully launched a sub-meter-class remote sensing satellite, Jilin-1, into space on a long march-2D carrier rocket from the Taiyuan satellite launch center in the northern province of Shanxi on Wednesday.

Jilin-1 satellite has the capability to capture high definition video imaging, optical and hyperspectral imagery for various mapping applications including environmental monitoring, forest management, energy, mining, land planning and more.

Once in orbit, the satellite will be networked with 15 previously launched Jilin-1 satellites to provide government and industry users with richer remote sensing data and product services.
