Yaogan 30 H

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2017-085B

Description

The Yaogan Weixing-30-03 mission – involving three satellites – was launched by a Long March-2C launch vehicle at 19:44 UTC from the LC3 Launch Complex.

As is usual for the Chinese media, this mission once again classed as involving new remote sensing birds that will be used to “conduct electromagnetic probes and other experiments.”

As was the case in previous launches of the Yaogan Weixing series, analysts believe this class of satellites is used for military purposes.
