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.
