3 Chinese satellites establish successful network for wider earth monitoring

Three Chinese satellites launched separately in September 2000, October 2002 and November this year established a successful network connection on Tuesday, 30th November. All three are remote sensing satellites, developed independently by China. Their main mission is to monitor soil conditions and land resources, aid city planning, forecast agricultural harvests, natural disasters and conduct space experiments. After being connected, their operating efficiency will increase, while their coverage area will also expand.
