Mission Details

Jilin-1 High Resolution 03A

Jilin is a Chinese constellation of remote sensing satellites.
Payloads: 1
Total Mass: 42 kg
Sun-Synchronous Orbit

Bufeng 1A & 1B

Bufeng 1A and 1B is a pair of small Chinese satellites built by CAST for testing the measurement of surface sea wind velocity fields via small satellites formation flying. The Bufeng satellites measure the velocity of the wind by measuring the signals of navigation satellites reflected on the ocean's surface (GNSS-R).
Payloads: 2
Sun-Synchronous Orbit

Tianxiang 1 & 2

Tianxiang 1 and 2, also called Zhongdian Wangtong 1A and 1B, is a pair of small Chinese satellites built by China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETGC) for testing of small satellite Ka-band communication interlinks. Additionally they carry also a space-based router, a multispectral camera and ADS-B.

Tianqi 3

Tianqi (also transcribed Tiange) is a series of small Chinese experimental LEO comsats by Guodian Gaoke for IoT communications, which are also carrying a camera for educational purposes. Guodian Gaoke plans to operate an IoT constellation operation. The "Apocalypse Constellation" provides users with much-needed data collection and transmission services for terrestrial network coverage blind areas, which are widely used in marine, environmental protection, meteorological, forestry, geological, emergency, rescue and smart city industries to enhance China's global data network coverage and application capabilities are of strategic importance.
