Program: Jilin

Chinese commercial remote sensing program.

The plan is to deploy 16 satellites by 2019 to have a 3- to 4-hour update, with 1m resolution and 4.5 x 11 km swath width (hyperspectral and IR), 5 m multispectral resolution. Satellites should have 3 years lifetime and weigh 95 kg at launch.

In the next decade 60 satellites should be operational to provde 30-minute updates. From 2030 there should be 138 satellites in orbit to provide all-day, all-weather 10-minute revisit anywhere on the globe.
