BEIJING, May 11 (Xinhua) -- China launched an experiment satellite onboard the Tianzhou-6 cargo craft on Wednesday, according to the satellite's developer Dalian University of Technology.
The satellite is a high-resolution Earth remote sensing CubeSat that weighs 17 kg.
It will serve to verify a series of innovative technologies such as high-resolution remote sensing imaging, a highly reliable domestic OpenHarmony operating system, advanced satellite components and ultralight multiple satellites deployers.
"The main payload of the satellite is a high-resolution multispectral camera, capable of achieving low-cost sub-meter high-resolution observation on ocean and Earth in orbit," said professor Xia Guangqing, chief designer of the satellite.
The satellite will be released at an appropriate time following the Tianzhou-6 cargo craft's docking with the space station.
