China’s second rocket launch mission this year has put three satellites of the Remote Sensing 31, Unit 02, into orbit, putting the country on track for a 100 percent success rate in 2021.
The mission was carried out by a Long March-4 carrier rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. The remote sensing satellite will carry out electromagnetic environment detection and related tests to improve the observation ability of the overall satellite network.
This is the second batch of Remote Sensing 31 satellites launched by China. The first batch is also a group of three satellites.
The three sets of satellites can form a three-point positioning, which is useful for maritime positioning and can also improve the ability to observe specific areas.
China is expected to launch more than 40 rocket missions in 2021, including at least three sea launches. So far, China has launched two successful missions, and this is the 359th launch of the Long March series of rockets. We hope that the following missions will continue to complete their missions successfully.
