China has successfully launched three Earth remote sensing satellites into a sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 500 km, private rocket developer Galaxy Space Aerospace said. 

The rocket was launched at 12:11 p.m. from the Jiuquan Cosmodrome in the north of the country. It launched two Taijin-1 series satellites (01 and 02) into orbit, as well as a small satellite, Donghai-1.

According to Galaxy Space Aerospace, the Taijin-1 devices will be used by commercial companies, including in forestry and agriculture and monitoring water resources. 

With the help of the Dunhai-1 device, experts plan to test multi-mode remote sensing technology, which uses polarization to transmit a signal via satellite, as well as several other domestic technologies for on-orbit testing, thanks to which in the future it will be possible to provide of satellite services in oceanic and other remote areas.
