China has successfully launched a group of nine high-resolution Earth remote sensing satellites of the Jilin-1 Gaofen-03-1 constellation, into orbit using the Long March-11 carrier rocket, an official said.
The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) said this on Tuesday in Beijing.
Earlier in September, the Jilin-1 Gaofen 02C remote-sensing satellite on board a Chinese-made Kuaizhou-1A carrier rocket failed to enter orbit after launch.
An investigation has begun to identify the cause of the failure.
According to the CASC, the Long March-11 rocket was launched at 01:23 GMT on Tuesday from a sea-based platform in the Yellow Sea.
The group of nine satellites includes three video satellites and six remote sensing scanners.[NewsNaira]
