Yaogan 13
Yaogan (in full Yaogan Weixing (遥感卫星), "Remote Sensing Satellite"; sometimes written YaoGan) refers to a series of Chinese reconnaissance satellites launched in the early 21st century. Chinese media
Chinese media
describe the satellites as intended for "scientific experiments, land survey, crop yield assessment, and disaster monitoring". Western analysts suspect that they are also used for military purposes.[1] Analysts believe that each satellite employs either optical or synthetic aperture radar (SAR) sensors and that the SAR satellites are of the Jian Bing-5 series.[2] The SAR satellite was developed by the Shanghai Academy of Space Flight Technology(SAST). The electro-optical digital imaging satellite was developed by the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST)

began a ballistic missile program in response to perceived American (and, later, Soviet) threats. However, the first Chinese crewed space program only began several decades later, when an accelerated program of technological development culminated in Yang Liwei's successful 2003 flight aboard Shenzhou 5. This achievement made China

2007 Chinese Anti-satellite Missile Test
On January 11, 2007, China conducted an anti-satellite missile test. A Chinese weather satellite—the FY-1C polar orbit satellite of the Fengyun series, at an altitude of 865 kilometres (537 mi), with a mass of 750 kg[1]—was destroyed by a kinetic kill vehicle traveling with a speed of 8 km/s in the opposite direction[2] (see Head-on engagement)

Kuafu Project
The Kuafu
Kuafu
project (simplified Chinese: 夸父计划; traditional Chinese: 夸父計劃; pinyin: Kuāfù Jìhuà) is a Chinese space project to establish a space weather forecasting system composed of three satellites, originally to be completed by 2012.[1] As of the Solar Wind XIII conference[2] in June 2012, the planned launch date was 2017. However, due to withdrawal first by Canada and then ESA, the project was indefinitely postponed.[3] The project is named after Kuafu, a giant in Chinese mythology who chased the sun and died trying. One of these satellites will be placed at the Sun-Earth Lagrangian Point L1, while the other two will be placed in polar orbits.[4] References[edit]^ "我国目光超越月球 "夸父计划"雄心勃勃".

Kuaizhou
Kuaizhou (KZ, Chinese: 快舟; pinyin: kuàizhōu, meaning "speedy vessel")[1] is a family of Chinese "quick-reaction" orbital launch vehicles. Flying since 2013, Kuaizhou 1 and 1A consist of three solid-fueled rocket stages, with a liquid-fueled fourth stage as part of the satellite system.[2] Kuaizhou 11, introduced in 2018, is a larger model capable to launch a 1,500-kilogram (3,300 lb) payload into low Earth orbit. Heavy-lift models KZ-21 and KZ-31 are in development.[3] The Kuaizhou series of rockets is manufactured by ExPace, a subsidiary of China
