The QQW or DQ (Da Qui) were two balloon satellites for studies of the density of the upper atmosphere.
The two satellites were launched on 3 September 1990 together with the prime payload FY 1B on a CZ-4 rocket. The satellites weighted 2.6 kg and 3.3 kg and were deployed from the CZ-4 upper stage using a special adapter.
