Gaofen 12

Gaofen (GF) is a series of Chinese civilian remote sensing satellites for the state-sponsored program China High-definition Earth Observation System (CHEOS).

GF 12 has been reported to be equipped with a high-resolution Earth observation system. It uses a microwave remote sensing system with ground resolution up to the sub-meter level, to be mainly used in land census, urban planning, land rights, road network design, crop estimation and disaster prevention and mitigation and other fields. Possibly it is a civilian version of the Yaogan 29 type satellite.

Gaofen 12 was launched on 27 November 2019 on a CZ-4C rocket from China's Taiyuan space center.
