China Earth Observation Systems
The PRC has been actively pursuing Earth observation space systems for more than twenty years. Two models of LEO recoverable Earth observation satellites are in use and a sun-synchronous meteorological satellite system has been tested.
China also receives LANDSAT-5, Japanese JRS-1, French SPOT, European Union ERS 1 and 2, and Canadian remote-sensing satellite data.
