This year, the CZ-2C rocket will be transferred to multiple launch sites for high-density launches. Li Jun, the chief designer of the first and second C rockets, introduced that at this stage,the development team is carrying out launch missions at Jiuquan and Xichang bases. Due to the need for epidemic prevention and control measures, the pressure on human resource planning has increased. For this reason, the first hospital planned in advance, and deployed force resources closely around the successful launch, so as to realize the allocation of products between tasks and models and the reuse of personnel at the launch site. For example, the Chang 2C and Chang 2F rocket launch tasks at Jiuquan Base were carried out in parallel, and the two teams reused personnel from multiple positions including the control and command post, which effectively reduced the number of personnel entering the site.

In the face of a more compact production test cycle, the R&D team completely eliminated the time loss of "idling" through the "transparency" of the product matching process, and comprehensively applied and continuously iteratively optimized the integrated documents in the final assembly and final test process to achieve quality. Control one-time alignment in place to ensure high-quality launch.
I think there will be one more CZ-2C launch from Xichang this month for purpose of 60+ in this year, because it is only 4 this month until now.

Since the outbreak of the epidemic in March this year, Changguang Satellite Technology Co., Ltd. has continuously produced 16 satellites. Recently, they have been successfully launched into orbit through the "One Arrow Five Stars" and "One Arrow Eight Stars" within a week. It is planned to be completed by the end of May. emission.
April 30, 5 x Jilin-1
May 5,   8 x Jilin-1
May 20, 2 x Digui Tongxin Shiyan
16 - 5 - 8 -2 = 1, so I think the payloads might be Jilin-1, if not from Xichang, it might be from Jiuquan or Taiyuan.

On the first day of June, Shanghai fully resumed work.
After the CZ-2D model test team closed their offices, they continued their expedition to the Xichang Satellite Launch Center. Ji Haiyi and his colleagues will escort the CZ-2D rocket to lift off in Moon City.
Because it will be LEO so that only China NOTAM, will be issued after next week.
The date is from travel firm.

Well, the NOTAMed zone fits CZ-2D to a 35 deg inclination orbit.
Used previously for three XJS launches, ten YG-30 triplets and one YG-35 launch.

"Я вас умоляю" (c)
Of 13 satellites mentioned on June 2, nine were launched as Geely and one was launched today. Only three left, and this is quite a usual number for CZ-2D from Jiuquan to 35 degrees orbit. I'm quite sure these are not Geely at all. I bet on Yaogan 36 :-)

At 10:22 on June 23, the Long March 2D carrier rocket carried out a one-shot three-star launch at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center. The launch mission was a complete success. The three satellites are mainly used for scientific experiments, land and resources census and other fields. This is the 424th launch of the Long March series of launch vehicles.

Weird that the launch happened from LC-3, this would break the alternation between the two pads that has been in place so far since the previous launch was also from LC-3.

I’m not sure the servicing platforms, arms and umbilicals at LC-2 can handle the CZ-2D.

And…launch success confirmed. It turns out that the guess of this being another Chinese “35 degree triplets” launch is correct - it’s LM-2D launching YG-35 Group 02 at 02:22 UTC.

It makes sense, all the previous CZ-2D launches from Xichang happened from LC-3

Chang Er Ding "One Arrow Samsung" successfully launched

At 10:22 on June 23, the Long March 2D carrier rocket ignited and took off at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, and then successfully sent the satellites A, B and C of the 02 group of remote sensing 35 into the sun-synchronous orbit for the launch mission. complete success.

The satellites A, B and C of the 02 group of Remote Sensing 35 are mainly used in scientific experiments, land and resources census and other fields. Among them, Star A and Star B were developed by the Fifth Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation; Star C was developed by the Eighth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Group.

The Long March 2D carrier rocket is a normal-temperature liquid two-stage carrier rocket developed by the General Manager of the Eighth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Group. It has the characteristics of high reliability, high safety, low cost, and short-cycle launch. The ability of satellites to implement one-shot single-satellite or multi-satellite launches.

In this mission, the Long March 2D launch vehicle control, power, thrust, telemetry, external security systems and other technologies have been upgraded to further improve the reliability of the rocket. The test team overcame many difficulties and completed the review of 8 special projects within 14 days of epidemic prevention and isolation, laying a solid foundation for the follow-up work at the launch site.

This launch is the 424th launch of the Long March series of launch vehicles.
The title "Yaogan-35 02A-C" is more correct.

On June 23, the Long March 2 Dingyao 64 carrier rocket was successfully launched. On June 26, the de-orbit system independently developed by the 805 Institute of the Eighth Academy of Sciences and configured on the rocket load compartment successfully deployed the de-orbit sail device in orbit. This is the largest off-orbit sail product in China at present, and it is also the first time in the world that off-orbit sail is applied to the cabin of a launch vehicle, aiming to slow down the growth of space debris
