Ludi Tance 1-01A []

Ludi Tance 1-01 (GF) is a series of Chinese civilian remote sensing satellites.

The weight of the 01-group A satellite of Land Exploration-1 is about 3.2 tons, and the total area of the SAR antenna exceeds 33 square meters. It is currently the largest SAR satellite in orbit in China. The satellite operates in a quasi-sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 607 kilometers, and is equipped with an advanced L-band multi-polarization and multi-channel SAR payload. It has all-day, all-weather, and multi-mode Earth observation capabilities. The satellite is mainly used for effective monitoring of geological environment, landslides and earthquake disasters.

The first satellite, Ludi Tance 1-01A was launched on 26 January 2022 on a CZ-4C rocket from China's Jiuquan space center.

The second satellite, Ludi Tance 1-01B is expected to follow about a month later.
