Chinese Government Launches Latest in Spy Satellite Series

03 August 2022

The Chinese government launched three new satellites into orbit last week, adding to its classified Yaogan Earth observation and reconnaissance series.

The three satellites join two sets of Yaogan 25 satellite triplets which were sent into orbit by two similar launches last November and June. All nine are now orbiting at roughly 310 miles (500 kilometres) above the Earth, with an inclination of 35 degrees in order to provide regular, repeated passes over areas of interest. Most of their purpose for the Chinese government is classified, although they are believed to have intelligence and military intent.  

China has launched satellites 27 times so far this year, and plans more than 50 launches in 2022.
