Beijing-1: Launched 2005

Beijing-1 is a low cost Earth Observation (EO) satellite, carrying two payloads that provide high-resolution (4-metre) panchromatic images alongside medium-resolution (32-metre) multi-spectral images with an ultra-wide 600km imaging swath.

Beijing-1 provides the Chinese government and commercial users with information on agriculture, water resources, environment and disaster monitoring throughout China. The satellite is also used extensively for monitoring urban development and pollution and to generate digital maps of China using the high-resolution panchromatic imager.
