Part of Taiyuan Family



Country: China. Spacecraft: Phoenix Eye, JB-9, JB-8. Launch Vehicles: Chang Zheng 4B, Chang Zheng 4C.

2014 December 7 - . 03:26 GMT - . Launch Site: Taiyuan LC9. Launch Complex: Taiyuan LC9. LV Family: CZ. Launch Vehicle: Chang Zheng 4B.
  • CBERS-4 - . Mass: 2,100 kg (4,600 lb). Nation: China. Class: Surveillance. Type: Surveillance satellite. Spacecraft: Phoenix Eye. USAF Sat Cat: 40336 . COSPAR: 2014-079A. Apogee: 774 km (480 mi). Perigee: 773 km (480 mi). Inclination: 98.5100 deg. Period: 100.32 min. China-Brazil Earth Resources Satellite 4. The uprated ZY-1 class satellite replaced CBERS 3 which was lost in a launch failure a year earlier. Sun synchronous orbit; 1030 GMT local time of the descending node..

  • Yaogan 26 - . Payload: Jianbing 8. Mass: 2,800 kg (6,100 lb). Nation: China. Class: Surveillance. Type: Surveillance satellite. Spacecraft Bus: Jianbing. Spacecraft: JB-8. USAF Sat Cat: 40362 . COSPAR: 2014-088A. Apogee: 489 km (303 mi). Perigee: 484 km (300 mi). Inclination: 97.4100 deg. Period: 94.34 min. The profile was similar to the Yaogan 5 series of imaging satellites, but the rocket used a larger nose fairing, so this was likely an upgrade. Sun synchronous orbit; 1030 GMT local time of the descending node..
