Highlights on some of the satellites launched via Long March 2C:
Heaviest satellite launched by Guodian Gaoke into space at 50 kg
Designed for technology development, Tianqi-14 is a commercial satellite operated by Guodian Gaoke (China).
A non-polar inclined LEO satellite, it was launched into space using Long March 2C as the launch vehicle from Xichang Satellite Launch Center on 18 June 2021. Tianqi-14 was constructed by Guodian Gaoke (China).
Tianqi-14 has a launch mass of 50 kg and orbits around the Earth with the COSPAR ID 2021-055E and NORAD ID 48864.
Taking 97 minutes to orbit the Earth, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 587km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 599km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 8.62E-04 and it orbits at an inclination of 35 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
Compare Tianqi-14 with SpaceBEE-100 from USA.
Yaogan 30-9-1 is a military satellite operated by Chinese Ministry of National Defense (China) for the purpose of earth observation (Electronic Intelligence).
Constructed by China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) (China), it was launched into space on 18 June 2021 using Long March 2C as the launch vehicle from Xichang Satellite Launch Center. Yaogan 30-9-1 orbits around the Earth as a non-polar inclined LEO satellite.
Yaogan 30-9-1 orbits around the Earth with the COSPAR ID 2021-055A and NORAD ID 48860.
With an orbital eccentricity of 6.46E-04, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 592km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 601km. It takes 96 minutes to orbit the Earth at an inclination of 35 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
Compare Yaogan 30-9-1 with RCM-1 from Canada.
