At 11:14 on January 15, 2023, the 6 satellites approved by the National Development and Reform Commission, including "Huashui No. 1", "Wofman No. 1", "Haihe No. 1", "Jilin No. 1" High-resolution 03D34, and "Jilin No. 1" MF02A03~04 were successfully launched into space on the Long March 2D carrier rocket at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in China. The satellites entered the predetermined orbit smoothly, and the launch mission was a complete success.
"Huashui No. 1" satellite ("Jilin No. 1" MF02A07 satellite) is a light and small high-resolution multi-mode optical remote sensing satellite for smart water conservancy jointly developed by Chang Guang Satellite Technology Co., Ltd. and North China University of Water Resources and Electric Power, which is the China's first inland water remote sensing satellite and the first optical satellite of the "Huashui Constellation". This satellite can obtain sub-meter-level high-resolution remote sensing images, and has multi-mode imaging capabilities such as push-broom, video, night light, and stereo, providing efficient intelligent sensing means for the census of China's inland surface water resources, refined management of surface water, monitoring and evaluation of water ecology, water environment protection and water disaster emergency response, and playing an important role in the high-quality development of water conservancy in China's new stage.
"Wofman" satellite and "Haihe No.1" satellite ("Jilin No.1" infrared A07~08 satellites) are new observation small satellites jointly developed by Chang Guang Satellite Technology Co., Ltd. and Tianjin Yunyao Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd. Based on the development of the "Tianjin University No. 1" satellite, this series of satellites has been mass-produced and adaptively designed, which has the characteristics of short development cycle, high integration, light weight, small size, and high cost performance, whose payload is a long-wave infrared camera, which can perform infrared imaging on the atmosphere, ocean and land.
The "Jilin No. 1" high-resolution 03D34 satellite is a light and small high-resolution optical remote sensing satellite independently developed by Chang Guang Satellite Technology Co., Ltd. It is an important achievement of the company's implementation of the concept of mass production. The satellite adopts the concept of integrated design of the load platform, which has the characteristics of low cost, low power consumption, low weight and high index.
"Jilin No. 1" MF02A03, 04, and 07 satellites are a flexible satellite carrying platform. This series of satellites can be flexibly converted from a single unit according to the integration requirements of different loads, which have high integration, strong carrying capacity, light weight and low cost. The Aurora 1000 intelligent computing three-computer cluster developed by the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences this time is developed using commercial high-performance device systems such as domestic CPUs and neural network processors of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which is used to verify key technologies such as on-board containerization, non-stop fault tolerance, and plug-and-play computing power units; This mission is the second consecutive deployment of the technical verification of the "Tianyun" virtual constellation system of the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences after the "Jilin NO.1" platform 01A01 satellite was launched into orbit on December 9, 2022.
After the six "Jilin NO.1" satellites launched this time are put into orbit, they can provide a wealth of remote sensing data and product services for agriculture, forestry, meteorology, oceanography, resources, environmental protection, urban construction, and scientific experiments.
This mission is the 24th launch of the "Jilin No.1" satellite project.
