A CZ-11 will launch several small sats (Xiaoxiang-2 to 5 / TY-2 to 5) on September 15, 2017, including an X-ray detector satellite (TY-4), an amateur astronomical satellite (TY-3) and two new technology test satellites (TY-2, TY -5).

The satellites will be launched from Jiuquan to a 500 km altitude orbit at 97.4 degrees.

My understanding is that Xiaoxiang 1 was TY 1 (launched on 9 November 2016 on the second CZ-11). Does anyone know what TY stands for?

Any news on how long this launch has been delayed?  (I assume no, but if anyone can confirm...)
