China launches HY-2B marine satellite

China sent a new marine satellite into orbit Thursday morning. A Long March-4B rocket sent the HY-2B satellite into orbit at 06:57 from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China’s Shanxi Province. The HY-2B is a remote sensing satellite. It will capture real-time marine data together with the HY-2A satellite launched seven years ago. The new satellite will also form a network with the subsequent HY-2C and HY-2D for marine environment monitoring. The HY-2B satellite can precisely observe dynamic factors of ocean such as sea level, wind and temperature, so mariners can get more accurate travel information. The satellite can also automatically recognize global ships and collect relevant information.
