Yaogan 30 F

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2017-075C

Description

This spacecraft is once again classed as a new remote sensing bird that will be used for scientific experiments, land survey, crop yield assessment, and disaster monitoring. As was the case in previous launches of the Yaogan Weixing series, analysts believe this class of satellites is used for military purposes, probably an electro-optical observation satellite based on the military Jianbing-6 series.
