Kill two birds with one stone! The high score 9 02 satellite and the Hede 4 satellite were successfully launched

World Wide Web

Source: CCTV News Client

At 16:53 on May 31, 2020, my country used the Long March No. 2 D carrier rocket at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center to successfully put the Gaofen No. 9 02 satellite and the Hede No. 4 satellite into a predetermined orbit, and the launch was a complete success.

Gaofen No. 9 02 is an optical remote sensing satellite with a ground pixel resolution up to sub-meter level. It is mainly used in areas such as land census, urban planning, land rights determination, road network design, crop estimation and disaster prevention and mitigation. , Which can provide information guarantee for the construction of the “Belt and Road”. The launch of the Hede-4 satellite was developed by Beijing Hede Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd., and can carry out global ship navigation status collection, global flight flight status collection and global Internet of Things information collection on orbit.
This mission is the 333th flight of the Long March series of launch vehicles. (Reporter: Peng Li Chaoqun Xiao Xin Cheng Kun Zhi Feng Xin Zhu)
