China Launches Surveillance & Communications Satellite To Track CPEC, BRI Projects Featured

  23 August 2020

China has launched two satellites today morning using Long March-2D carrier rocket, namely Gaofen-9 05 and Tiantuo-5 which can keep an eye on BRI including the CPEC (China-Pakistan Economic Corridor) initiatives of Beijing.

China has successfully launched a new satellite named Gaofen-9 05 using its Long March-2D carrier rocket at 10:27 hours on Sunday (Beijing Time), agencies reported. The launch took place at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in Northwest China, according to the China National Space Administration.

The Gaofen-9 05 is an optical remote-sensing satellite with a resolution said to be up to the sub-meter level. It would be used for land surveying, city planning, disaster management and prevention, crop yield estimation as well as planning for the Belt and Road initiative or CPEC. It can also be used for other surveillance operations.

The launch marked the 343rd mission of the Long March rocket family, reported Xinhua.

Along with the Gaofen-9 05, the rocket also carried a multi-functional experimental satellite ‘Tiantuo-5’, which would house communications and navigation technologies under further testing, and would be used to verify in-orbit information collection capabilities from ships, spacecraft, and Internet of Things.
