China brought into orbit a group of satellites “Yaogan-30"

China brought into orbit a sixth group of remote drilling satellites on Earth “Yaogan-30" using a “Changzhen-2Xi” carrier rocket, TASS reported.
The launch was carried out from the Xichan Cosmodrome in Sichuan Province in the southwest of the country. The satellites were successfully brought into the set orbit. They will be used to study Earth's electromagnetic field and for technical testing, Xinhua notes.

The Yaogan series satellites are designed for Earth surface exploration, crop assessment and can be used to eradicate the consequences of extreme disasters, BTA says.

The first Chinese remote drilling satellite on Earth of the Yaogan series was brought into orbit in 2006. The current launch is the 329th with a carrier rocket from the Changzhen series.
