China launches new data relay satellite

China sent a new data relay satellite into orbit from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China’s Sichuan Province. The Tianlian II-01 satellite was launched at 23:51 Beijing Time by a Long March-3B carrier rocket. As the first satellite to constitute China’s second-generation data relay satellite network, the Tianlian II-01 will provide data relay, measurement and control, transmission services for manned spacecraft, satellites, carrier rockets and other non-spacecraft users. The Tianlian II network will be markedly more advanced in mission planning, system management and operations than the first-generation network composed of Tianlian I satellites.
