Beijing at 8:56 on January 13, China’s Xichang Satellite Launch Center in the “Long March III A” carrier rocket, the “Storm II” 07 satellite was successfully launched. China news agency reporters Sun Zi and Fa She
China news agency, Beijing, January 13 (Liu Chenyao) – Fengyun 07 star at 13 GMT 8:56 in the Xichang Launch Center, China Meteorological Bureau of National Meteorological Centre detected simultaneously show room launches. After its successful launch point 112 ° east longitude over the equator in geostationary orbit, and was named FY-II-F satellite, marking China’s “Double Star observations, in-orbit backup” business formal pattern formation.
According to the National Satellite Meteorological Administration, deputy director of Weicai Ying introduced Fengyun 07 for the geostationary orbit meteorological satellite, FY-II 03 is approved in the first three satellites star. Way to spin-stabilized satellite design life of four years.
It is understood, the situation II-F satellite used for weather forecasting, climate prediction, disaster monitoring, environmental monitoring, military, aerospace, meteorological and other important areas, especially in the typhoon, heavy rain, fog, dust storms , forest and grassland fires play an important role in monitoring and early warning.
Wei Caiying accept China news agency reporters in an interview that the satellite satellite live longer than ever before, more reliable. II-F satellite FY-life of 4 years of work, which is the Chinese geostationary meteorological satellites have been launched in the longest working life. Monitoring in space, past the satellite monitoring for the 15 position, while the all-weather satellite FY-II-F continuous meteorological monitoring of the Earth. “If the monitoring technology previously manual transmission, then 15, FY-II-F satellite is a continuously variable mode.” Weicai Ying figuratively.
According to statistics, the U.S. weather satellite launch technology first in the world, since 1960 has launched 41 satellites, there are seven in-orbit. Since 1974, Europe launched its first weather satellite launched a total of 11, now five in orbit. September 7, 1988, China’s first meteorological satellite FY (FY-1A) Taiyuan Launch Center in Shanxi success, as of now launched a total of 11 satellites, FY-II-F satellite is China’s first seven in the orbiting satellites.
Jiao Mei Yan, deputy director of China Meteorological Administration, said Fengyun 07 stars successfully launched to achieve the Chinese geostationary meteorological satellite operations from experimental application type to operational service type of change, the weather in China predict cause and cause a major role in disaster prevention and mitigation.
