CG company successfully launched the “Jilin No. 1” high-resolution 03A satellite in the Yellow Sea areas at 12:06 on June 5, 2019. The satellite successfully entered into the scheduled orbit, which is a complete successful launch.

“Jilin No. 1” high-resolution 03A satellite is a new generation of optical remote sensing satellite independently developed by CG company. Fully inheriting the mature stand-alone and technical foundation of the “Jilin-1” satellites, the satellite adopts innovative technologies such as lightweight structural design, highly integrated electronics system, high-resolution/ultra-lightweight/low-cost camera. At an orbit altitude of 572km, it realizes the technical indicators of the whole satellite resolution better than 1.1m, the width better than 18km, and the weight less than 40kg, which has the characteristics of low cost, low power consumption, low weight and high resolution. Once in orbit, the satellite will be netted with 12 previously launched Jilin-1 satellites, providing more abundant remote sensing data and product services for the government, industry and users along the “Belt and Road”.

The launch is the sixth one of the “Jilin-1” satellite project, and it is also the first time to have a space launch at sea for China.

Up to now, the “Jilin-1” satellite constellation has 13 satellites in orbit and all running well. With  high time/ spatial / spectral resolution, diverse data, rich patterns, “Jilin-1” constellation can collect static and dynamic target information from ground and spatial through push sweeping, gazing, strip splicing, large dip side sway, stereo, low-light and inertial space imaging, providing more than 10 countries, 20+ industries and 200+ corporations with various types of remote sensing information services, which has created good social and economic benefits.
