So could it be an SJ-16#2 launched by CZ-4B in a circular ~600 km orbit inclined 75°?

So, what is our current thinking about what makes them call something Yaogan and something else Shi Jian?Shi Jian includes technology development but also includes military series like SJ-16 and SJ-11... is it an issueof parent organization/management and if so what are the details?
