Hainan Province plans to launch four satellites around the end of this year, thus beginning construction of the island’s first space-based network in southernmost #China.
Four Hainan 1-series optical Earth-observation satellites have been assembled and are scheduled to be put into orbit by the second flight of the Long March 8 medium-lift carrier rocket from the Wenchang Space Launch Center.
Once the satellite network becomes fully operational, in the near future, it will be helpful in a wide range of sectors such as marine transportation, fisheries, island management and maritime search and rescue.
