UPDATED: Nov. 21, according to the 9ifly schedule

It seems that the date was only a guess from a forum member (who isn't an insider) without using any reliable sources. Indeed it is still not known which rocket will be used for the next Jilin-1 satellites (could be the next CZ-6 instead, or even KZ-1A/11), except that they announced that two more launches are planned this year with 3 & 2 satellites respectively. :-\

Thanks for the confirmation.

I suppose that if it wasn't a CZ-6, you would have already amended the thread title!

 Why is the vehicle already assembled if the launch is in a month? Is it some kind of systems test?

It supposed to be some kinds of rehearsals. AFAIK, the CZ6 can ready to launch within 7 days

Jilin-1 is a series consisting of multiple satelites?

This must be the same Jilin-1 that was launch back in October 2015 (https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=38183.0). Four satellites were launch then. Were all those four satellites in the Jilin-1 series?

i am cross referencing to two posts in that thread here:-

Jilin-1 optical satellite (high resolution multi-spectralpanchromatic): Resolution 0.72 m - 420 kg

A imaging validation satellite with 4.7 m resolution - 50 kg (LQSat ?)

Two video imaging satellites: 4K ultra-clear video resolution 1.13 meters - 95 kg each (LQ Lingqiao-A/B ?)


1 x 420 kg class main satellite (specifications on graph 1)
1 x 65 kg class agile imaging demonstration satellite (specifications on graph 2)
2 x 95 kg class video imaging satellite (specifications on graph 3)

Hi SmallKing, in the subject heading you type as Jilin-1(04-06)...the numbers in the bracket, does it represent Jilin-1(04), Jilin-1(05) and Jilin-1(06), the three satellite to be launched?
