The world's first satellite actively sensing CO2 with the LiDAR technology, the new satellite will be ready for launch in July, said Zhang Xingying, a senior researcher with the National Satellite Meteorological Center, in an interview with Xinhua.

This satellite is known as the Atmospheric environment monitoring satellite or Daqi-1 and it seems to be 'Chinese Aura'. It's different from the Tansat-2 project which involves six satellites in two different SSOs.
Also, July was the scheduled date for factory review and not for launch yet.



I'm reconstituting a launch thread for Daqi-1.  As you see, we've been expecting it's launch from Jiuquan during the second half of 2021.

There was a September launch from Jiuquan, apparently canceled on short notice, documented immediately down-thread.

The early November Jiuquan launch was for Yaogan-32 Group 02, and the late November Jiuquan launch was for Gaofen-3 (02).

No joy yet.

Cross-post:
A rumor has surfaced that the rocket had a mechanical problem with a valve, which clearly delayed the launch, and that this [CZ-2C launch from Jiuquan] delay could have affected the launch of the [K?]Z-1A rocket that was scheduled for September 18.
Is there a chance the payload and rocket were removed from the pad?
If you are referring to the rumor, I don't know, if it is true that there is a problem with a valve I suppose they will do their best to fix it on the platform, but if they don't manage to do so, it may be necessary to lower the payload, although I don't know if this is possible on the CZ-2C/YZ-1S.
Depends if any membranes on the rocket from attempted fuel and oxidizer load need replacing if there was indeed an attempt.

If the CZ-2C was removed from the pad, could it have made way for the Daqi-1 launch from the same pad?

I'm wondering: Might the PRC allow more coverage of this launch, due to its "civilian" and environmental remote sensing nature?

If not, then our "outsider" first inkling of an imminent launch would be NOTAMs and/or NOTMARs for a Jiuquan launch that don't match that published for Yaogan-32 Group-02.

That's a good question, as I mentioned in the original thread, if this rumor is true it could change the launch schedule from Jiuquan, however we wouldn't know to what extent the launch affected the others, in principle if the rocket was removed from the pad for closer inspection it could leave room for another launch, however, it would have to be seen which rocket would be launched now as the launch pad might need refurbishment for the launch, although it could also be that another CZ-2C rocket was launched so there would be no changes to the launch pad to avoid further delays but then, another problem would arise. The failure of the CZ-2C for the Yaogan-32 Group 02 launch would be a one-off failure...or it could be some error in the production of the CZ-2Cs...this may sound somewhat illogical but it has happened before, I remember a few months ago a failure was detected in a Soyuz rocket which led to inspect the other rockets that were finished and that step.... had to revise the rockets of that production batch so they had to repair all these defective rockets which I think were already launched this year or there would be some left to launch.

Wikipedia lists the Daqi-1 as planned to be launched aboard a Long March 4C rocket, but has there been any latest word on status of the Daqi-1, or whether it will launch next year.

The two footnote sources in the current Wikipedia article are: 1) the March 2, 2021 Xinhua article referenced in this thread's OP, and 2) the spaceflightfans.cn listing page based on that same Xinhua article.

The WP editor or editors apparently know nothing more, or newer, than we do here on the NSF forum.

I'll say it again.  WP is, at best, a secondary information source. At worst, flat-out wrong.

TL;DR Wikipedia  ::)

This is absolutely the case. You are at least as knowledgeable and competent as the Wikipedia editor who edited that article. ALWAYS go to the cited sources. If the Wikipedia article contradicts the source, then you have just as much authority and responsibility to fix the Wikipedia as anyone else does. If you know of a better source, then add that source to the article. If you don't wish to learn how to edit Wikipedia "properly", then add a comment, with your source, on the article's talk page.

Doubtful.  What little is known or deduced about Daqi-1 is that it is too large and/or massive for Gushenxing-1.  Thus, its apparent assignment on a CZ-2D.

This Daqi-1 might be launched by Gushenxing-1 for one of multiple payloads next week.

Daqi with its five instruments is a main payload, an equivalent to OCO or even Aura...

Nothing that looks like related to this (or heck *any* of the up to 5 known/rumoured with a chance going up before end of 2021) launches are active within Chinese borders. I haven’t checked downrange areas yet.

Do you have the source of this happening on the 27th? There’s a NOTAM in the Indian Ocean that lines up with a launch out of Jiuquan, but it’s for NET December 30th:

Given current circumstances, but also given the relatively high importance of the program (?), do we expect any advance notice of this launch, either officially or leak-ok'd-by-a-higher-authority?

Or, is the consensus that the first news of this launch will appear as an "anonymous" NOTAM or NOTAMs, as is now most often the case?

Good to hear about the development status of the Daqi-1 satellite. The question is when CNSA will issue an appropriate launch window for the Daqi-1.

Regarding the satellite, I have found this paper (which calls it the Atmospheric Environment Monitoring Satellite, AEMS) from several years ago but the instrument suite seems to have changed a bit since then. It's in a 705 km altitude SSO at 2.6 tonnes mass.

If someone knows what do the 5 instrument's abbreviation means (it must be in some academic meeting presentation, somewhere over the past few years), please post it here.

Atmosphere-1 is versatile and technologically advanced, and one satellite is equivalent to several satellites from other countries. Atmosphere-1 is equipped with five remote sensing instruments including atmospheric detection lidar, high-precision polarization scanner, multi-angle polarization imager, ultraviolet hyperspectral atmospheric composition detector and wide-field imaging spectrometer, which can greatly improve global carbon monitoring and atmospheric pollution monitoring. ability.
This is Daqi-1.

ACDL = Aerosol and Carbon dioxide Detection Lidar
DPC-II = Directional Polarimetric Camera
EMI-II = Environmental Trace Gas Monitoring Instrument
POSP = Particulate Observing Scanning Polarization
WSI = Wide Spectral Imager

It seems Daqi-1 is essentially a version of Gaofen 5 with a lidar.

China Remote Sensing Satellite Ground Station Successfully Received Atmospheric Environment Monitoring Satellite Data

On March 21, the China Remote Sensing Satellite Ground Station (hereinafter referred to as the "ground station") of the Institute of Aerospace Information Innovation, Chinese Academy of Sciences successfully received data from the atmospheric environment monitoring satellite.

At 11:46 am, the ground station Miyun station successfully tracked and received the downlink data of the atmospheric environment monitoring satellite, which is also the first downlink data after the satellite was launched. After that, the ground station Sanya station also successfully completed the satellite data reception task as planned at 13:17 and 14:55 respectively. The total data duration of the three receiving tasks is 24 minutes and 24 seconds, and the data volume is about 133 GB. All data are processed normally.

The atmospheric environment monitoring satellite was successfully launched on April 16. It is a scientific research satellite in the "National Civil Space Infrastructure Medium and Long-term Development Plan (2015-2025)". The carbon dioxide detection lidar it carries is the world's first launch. The ground station is responsible for the data receiving task of the satellite.

Aerospace Science and Technology Group develops atmospheric environment monitoring satellite Qi-1 and goes online

On April 16, the ChangsiC rocket was successfully launched from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center. This time, the gold medal "space train" is the atmospheric environment monitoring satellite (referred to as Atmosphere-1), which is the world's first carbon dioxide laser detection satellite. On the 705-kilometer sun-synchronous orbit, the 2,600-kilogram Atmosphere No. 1 has started to work, which will greatly improve the global carbon monitoring and large-scale high-precision monitoring of atmospheric pollution, and realize the leap-forward development of my country's atmospheric remote sensing technology.

Before the launch of the Atmosphere-1, passive monitoring of carbon emissions was adopted internationally. The so-called passive monitoring is to use the payload to analyze the received reflectance spectrum information to determine the level of carbon emissions. This process requires the participation of sunlight. However, because of the Lidar, the atmosphere-1 has got rid of the dependence on sunlight and achieved high-precision global autonomous detection throughout the day.

The launch of Qiqi-1 marks the leap-forward development of my country's atmospheric remote sensing technology. On the one hand, the satellite has achieved high-precision detection of carbon dioxide concentration throughout the day. On the other hand, it is reflected in the use of various means to integrate high-precision stereo monitoring. Fine particulate matter, the data of particulate matter near the ground can be monitored, which is directly related to people's health.

Zhu Wei, chief designer of Qiqi-1, said: "Gas-1 is versatile and technologically advanced. One satellite is equivalent to several satellites from other countries." A variety of channels help the radar identify the surface features of the detection area, whether it is water surface, surface or desert, at a glance.

Zhu Wei revealed that in the future, he also plans to launch the Atmosphere-2 satellite, that is, a high-precision greenhouse gas comprehensive detection satellite. Joint detection can achieve the dual advantages of wide coverage and high precision, and further enhance the level of my country's space-based carbon monitoring capabilities.
