 One arrow and eight stars! China and France will successfully share the successful launch of the ocean satellite data.


It is learnt that this is a practical action for China and France to join hands in the peaceful development and utilization of outer space and will play an important role in the economic construction and scientific and technological development of the two countries, as well as in the fields of global marine environmental monitoring, disaster prevention and mitigation, and climate change.

The China-France ocean satellite is the first satellite developed by the two countries. China is responsible for providing satellite platform, ocean wind observation load and launching measurement and control. France is responsible for providing ocean wave observation load and sharing satellite data.

China and France will observe the sea breeze and sea waves for the first time. The satellite is equipped with a microwave scatterometer developed by the Chinese side and a marine spectrometer developed by the French side. The satellite will work 24 hours uninterruptedly in an orbit 520 kilometers away from the earth. The satellite will carry out large-area and high-precision synchronous observation of ocean surface wind and waves on a global scale. The satellite will carry out scientific experiments and scientific applications related to the ocean and the atmosphere to further scientific understanding. The changing laws of the marine dynamic environment, such as no wind, no waves, no wind, no waves, no waves pushing forward and so on, can improve the accuracy and timeliness of the prediction of disastrous sea conditions such as huge waves, oceanic tropical storms, storm surges and so on.

In addition, China-France ocean satellites can also observe the land surface, obtain soil moisture, roughness and polar ice sheet related data, and provide basic information for global climate change research.

The data obtained by China-France ocean satellites will be shared by scientists from China and France, and can also be used by scientists and forecasters from all over the world to provide services for the safety of navigation at sea, global marine disaster prevention and mitigation, and global marine resources survey.

In 2005, the Chinese and French governments signed an administrative agreement on cooperation in the field of astronomy and marine satellites. In 2006, the Chinese and French space agencies signed a memorandum of understanding to clarify the division of responsibilities. In 2009, the China France maritime satellite was officially established. In March 2014, witnessed by the two heads of state, the space agencies of the two countries signed an agreement to include China-France ocean satellites in the medium and long-term planning of Sino-French cooperation. In January 2018, during the visit to China by French President Mucklow, he visited the China France maritime satellite assembly test site. The approval, organization and management of the Sino-French Ocean Satellite Project are under the responsibility of the National Bureau of Defense, Science and Industry, and the Ministry of Natural Resources is the user department. The satellite system is headed by China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation Limited and the payload is developed by the Space Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the National Space Research Center of France. Research Institute of rocket technology was developed. The launch also carried a scientific and educational satellite developed by the National University of Belarus, as well as six scientific and technological test satellites developed by relevant domestic units. It was the 289th launch of the Long March launch vehicle series. Source: Beijing News Editor: Shi Jianlei _NBJ11331
