Jilin-1 Gaofen-03A [Chang Guang Sat. Tech. Co.]

Jilin 1 satellites are a series of Chinese commercial remote sensing satellite for high definition video within the Jilin-1 constellation designed and owned by the Chang Guang Satellite Technology Co.

The Jilin-1 Gaofen-03A satellite is a prototype for the Jilin-1 Gaofen-03 series and has a mass of 42 kg and features a light weight imaging system with a resolution of 1 m, an image swath of 17 km from a 579 km high orbit.

The satellite was launched in June 2019 on the first sea launch of a CZ-11H rocket.

A cluster of nine satellites was launched in September 2020 also on a sea launch of a CZ-11H rocket. This cluster consisted of six Jilin-1 Gaofen-03B pushbroom imager satellites and three Jilin-1 Gaofen-03C video satellites. The push-broom satellites are able to obtain push-broom images with panchromatic resolution better than 1 m, multi-spectral resolution better than 4 m, and with a swath width larger than 17 km. The video satellites can obtain color video images with a resolution better than 1.2 m and a coverage area not less than 14.4 km × 6 km.
