Hainan-1 03, 04

The Hainan-1 small earth observation satellites are part of Sanya Institute of Remote Sensing 's constellation of small earth observation satellites focused at the tropical province Hainan.

The satellites feature wide-angle cameras to map designated areas. Also an AIS receiver to track ships is on board.

In the coming years, the institute plans to launch two more Hainan-1 satellites, two more high spectral resolution satellites called Sanya-1 and two synthetic aperture radar satellites called Sansha-1.

The Hainan-1 satellites were originally planned to be launched on a Jielong-1 rocket, but due to mass issues they were switched to a ride-share launch on a CZ-8 (2).
