China successfully launched the Jilin No. 1 high-scoring 02B satellite at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center using the No. 1 A launch vehicle. The satellite smoothly entered the planned orbit and the mission was successfully completed.
“Jilin No. 1” high score 02B satellite is a new optical remote sensing satellite independently developed by Changguang Satellite Technology Co., Ltd. The star fully inherits the mature single machine and technical foundation of the “Jilin-1” satellite, and has the characteristics of high resolution, large width, and high-speed data transmission. After the satellite is in orbit, it will form a network with 14 previously launched “Jilin No. 1” satellites to provide users in the agriculture, forestry, resources, environment and other industries with richer remote sensing data and product services. This mission is the eighth launch of the “Jilin-1” satellite project.
Kuaizhou No. 1A carrier rocket is a small solid carrier rocket developed by China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation Co., Ltd. Aerospace Science and Technology Rocket Technology Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Aerospace Sanjiang Group. It has the characteristics of high orbit accuracy, short preparation period and low launch cost. This time is the fourth launch of the Clipper-1A launch vehicle this year.
