Beijing 3A

Beijing 3A [21AT]

Beijing 3A is an agile remote sensing optical satellite developed by Aerospace Dongfanghong Satellite Co., Ltd. of the Fifth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Group for 21AT (Twenty First Century Aerospace Technology Company Ltd).

Using the new generation of agile satellite technology, the satellite can quickly obtain high-quality, high-resolution and high-precision ground images. It is built on the CAST3000E high-performance agile satellite platform, using ultra-high agility, ultra-high stability, ultra-high-precision technology, autonomous mission planning, in-orbit image processing and other technologies to realize intelligent systems and autonomous continuous imaging. Once the satellite is successfully launched, it can provide a large number of high-resolution remote sensing satellite data and information products for the global market, and provide spatial information support for land and resource management, resource studies agriculture, ecological environment monitoring and urban planning. comprehensive applications.

Beijing 3A carries two imagers: a full color imager with a resolution of 0.5 m and a multispectral imager with a resolution of 2.0 m.
