The TL 2 (Tian Lian 2) satellite is a geostationary relay satellite based on the DFH-4 Bus (three-axis-stabilized telecommunications satellite platform). TL 2 will be used to support real-time communications between orbiting satellites and ground control stations. This system will replace the current network of ground-based space tracking and telemetry stations and space tracking ships.
TL 2 represents the second generation of this new network.
