A Chinese Long March 4C will deliver the Fengyun-3D weather satellite into a Sun Synchronous Orbit to support China’s numerical weather forecasting capabilities as well as climate science. Fengyun-3 is the second generation of Chinese polar orbiting meteorological satellites, introduced in 2008 with the launch of FY-3A. Weighing in at 2,200 Kilograms, the FY-3 satellites host a total of 12 instruments to capture multi-spectral imagery, collect atmospheric soundings, capture mircowave and infrared emissions, measure space radiation and collect ozone measurements. FY-3D is intended as reinforcement and replacement for the three FY-3-class satellites launch to date, the latest reaching orbit in 2013.

|Payload:||Jilin 1-04, 1-05, 1-06|
|Satellite Type:||Earth Observation|
A Chinese Long March 6 will launch three commercial remote sensing satellites for high-definition video collection within the Jilin-1 satellite constellation. Each of the satellites weighs around 95 Kilograms and measures 1.2 by 1.1 meters in size, equipped with a camera system capable of achieving a ground resolution of 1.13 meters, covering a frame of 4.3 by 2.4 Kilometers. The Jilin small satellite project is far more ambitious than launching four satellites into orbit, having outlined the goal of operating over 60 satellites in orbit by 2020 to be able to capture views of any point on Earth every 30 minutes.
