Jian Bing 5A has already been launched as Yaogan 1 using a CZ-4B launcher on April 26, 2006. It is the first in a series of SAR remote sensing satellites for the Chinese military/economy. Jian Bing 5B (Yaogan 2) could be launched at the end of 2007 or in the first half of 2008.

I think it clear from here that all the three Huanjing 1 disaster monitoring satellites are delayed into 2008.
