The Phoenix Eye bus was designed for sun synchronous orbits and used in the ZY-2 and CBERS earth observation satellites.

AKA: Zi Yuan. Status: Operational 1999. First Launch: 1999-10-14. Last Launch: 2014-12-07. Number: 7 .

The design was split into the following subsystems: structure, attitude and orbit control, thermal control, power supply and TT&C. It was designed to accept a range of remote sensing equipment requiring high attitude control precision, maneuver capability, large data storage and high data transmission rate.
